Publisher's Description

Smart leaders learn from their own mistakes. Smarter ones learn from others’ mistakes—and successes.  

John C. Maxwell wants to help you become the smartest leader you can be by sharing Leadership Gold with you. After nearly forty years of leading, Maxwell has mined the gold so you don’t have to. Each gold nugget is contained in one of twenty- six chapters designed to be a six-month mentorship from the international leadership expert. Each chapter contains detailed application exercises and a “Mentoring Moment” for leaders who desire to mentor others using the book. 

Gaining leadership insight is a lot like mining for gold. You don’t set out to look for the dirt. You look for the nuggets. You’ll find them here.

Publisher's Weekly

Maxwell (the bestselling The 21 Irrefutable Laws of Leadership) shares 26 nuggets of wisdom based on his nearly 40 years of leadership. A practical guide, complete with exercises and “mentoring moments,” this collection offers a blend of advice, professional wisdom and personal recollection. Each chapter provides insight into a specific aspect of effective management. Some, such as “The Best Leaders Are Listeners” and “Keep Learning to Keep Leading,” are hardly groundbreaking, but others such as “Don't Send Your Ducks to Eagle School” (a phrase borrowed from Jim Rohn) and “For Everything You Gain, You Give Up Something” provide perspective into less-explored facets of successful leadership. Maxwell also covers some of the more challenging aspects of his topic: defining personal success, guarding against unrealistic thinking and determining why people quit. Throughout, Maxwell includes call-out quotes from well-known leaders such as Jack Welch and Frances Hesselbein as well as from surprising voices like J.K. Rowling and Joyce Brothers. A solid addition to a crowded field, this book will be of value to seasoned leaders as well as those just starting out. (Apr.) Copyright 2008 Reed Business Information.

    I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book and connected to many of the "nuggets" of leadership Dr Maxwell writes about. Because of the story telling nature and personal examples in the book, i was able to immediately relate them to apply to my life.

    The book was so good, i bought 30 copies and gave them away as gifts to my pastors and ministry leaders in my church!

    John Maxwell does it again. He takes the concepts, principles, and practices of leadership and shares them in a way that is understandable and easily implemented in daily life. I have grown tremendously over the years by applying many of Maxwell's teachings. This book is very helpful with its 26 amazing chapters of material. From leading yourself to leading others, this book will give you concepts and personal illustrations. There are also application exercises in every chapter, along with a mentoring Moment. Regardless of who you lead, you will find much value in the reading this book.

    Very informative and straight to the point. This book gives a different perspective in what leadership really is. It allows one to see how selfish it can be to think that leadership is "lording" over others really is; as true leadership is helping others reach their goals as you reach your's. A must have for your personal library.
