Publisher's Description

John Maxwell offers key principles, stories, and reflections on preparing a leader's mind and heart to lead both themselves and others.

Maxwell, shares insight on what it takes to be a leader.  The Right to Lead is a character study of outstanding men and women throughout history, focusing on the qualities that are consistent in the lives of these great leaders.  Perfect for gift giving for a graduation, Father's Day, or year-round for business or church leaders.

John C. Maxwell's The Right to Lead: Learning Leadership Through Character and Courage is an amalgamation of short profiles of famous leaders (Gen. Norman Schwarzkopf, Nelson Mandela, Eric Liddell, George Washington), quotes from famous personalities related to the core of leadership ("Virtue is bold, and goodness never fearful," William Shakespeare), and inspiring photography (racing yachts in full sail, dogsled teams running at full gait). The book is divided into seven sections related to aspects of leadership: action, vision, sacrifice, risk, determination, service, and integrity. In each, Maxwell pulls quotes from his own previously published books, provides lists of goals for and characteristics of leaders, and frequently adds short paragraphs that highlight biblical characters, such as Noah and Abraham, who demonstrated courage and determination against great odds.

Whereas this book can be read through in a little more than an hour, it will more likely be the kind of book that will be pulled from a shelf every few weeks for a quick-fix motivational moment of review and encouragement. It is a handsome hardbound, succinct 7" x 7" text that would make a good graduation, birthday or holiday gift. – Dr. Dennis E. Hensley, www.ChristianBookPreviews.com

    I'm sure many leaders have read leadership books. I know I have. In fact, we read, notate, study - we work at understanding the concepts, figuring them out, determining how they apply, and what we can do.This book will give you something of a break - not from learning and improving, but from the amount of work involved.I his book The Right to Lead, John Maxwell has created a very practical guide to leadership. He provides 7 core principles, and delivers them in a way that will be immediately understandable and actionable. He relies on stories quotes from people we've heard about, and illustrates these principles. No heavy theory, no deep philosophy, just clarity.I'd also add that this is not just your typical business leadership book - it can apply to parents leading their children as well as a CEO driving a multi-billion dollar enterprise.I would heartily recommend this book to anyone that recognizes their need to develop as a leader.Disclosure of Material Connection: I received this book free from Thomas Nelson Publishers as part of their BookSneeze.com book review bloggers program.

    At first glance it seems like a good book for a graduation gift, or great coffee table decor, but when you open The Right to Lead you find that it is much more. In this short book John Maxwell retells great stories of sacrifice and risk, shares poignant quotes regarding vision and integrity, and speaks to the necessity of action, determination, and service on the part of every leader.A few of my favorite quotes from the bookYou will never do anything in this world without courage. - James AllenWe set young leaders up for a fall if we encourage them to envision what they can do before they consider the kind of person they should be. - R. Ruth BartonBeing the first to cross the finish line makes you a winner in only phase of life. Its what you do after you cross the line that really counts. - Ralph Boston, Olympic Gold MedalistThe ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort and convenience, but where he stand at times of challenge. - Martin Luther King Jr.The harder you work, the harder it is to surrender. - Vince LombardiTrue heroism is remarkably sober, very undramatic. It is not the urge to surpass all others at whatever the cost, but the urge to serve others at whatever cost. - Arthur AsheThere are dozens of other great quotes in this short book. If your looking for a short, easy read on leadership this is a great book to pick up.Disclosure of Material Connection: I received this book free from Thomas Nelson Publishers.

    I just finished reading The Right to Lead by John C. Maxwell. Wow. I thought this book looked a little "light" at first. It appeared to be a loose collection of tidbits from other books that had been repackaged for resale. I was half right. Much of the content is not new, but from other Maxwell books et al. However, it is not loose. The content is a soul searching look at what a leader is, and is not.The main premise is that leadership is a right, not a title. People will follow you based on title because of the structure of authority setup in certain places. However, that does not make a person a leader. John tackles 7 key qualities of leadership: Action, Vision, Sacrifice, Risk, Determination, Service, and Integrity. Each section has key insights in small and concise summaries. Additionally, many biographies show real life examples of these qualities in action and the resulting leadership of the individual.This is a fantastic book. It made me look at myself as a leader. Am I living up to the potential God has given me? Am I honoring the place God has put me in? Am I trying to be better? I have read this book several times already and will probably do so several more.Disclosure of Material Connection: I received this book free from Thomas Nelson Publishers as part of their book review bloggers program.

    The Right to Lead: Learning Leadership Through Character and Courage, by John C. Maxwell, is the kind of book any potential leader would be thrilled to read. It is a gift bookso its good for a coffee table book or a quick read - but the content is very inspiring.The book is broken down into 7 different sections. Each section then consists of stories of leadersthroughout time, inspirational quotes, and tips on how to be a great leader. It seems that some of the pages were pulled from other Maxwell book's, but didn't affect my interest in the bookat all. I especially liked the story of Harriet Tubman and how she was an unlikely hero. No matterhow much I already know about her, I love learning more. I would recommend this gift book for either someone who is going to lead, orfor someone being called into a leadershipand is lacking the self-esteem or courage and might just need a spiritual boost.I received this book free from Thomas Nelson Publishers as part of their BookSneeze.com book review bloggers program.

    Leadership, like character is not bestowed by decree, it is earned, and earning it takes time. The Right to Lead: Learning and Leadership Through Character and Courage, by John C. Maxwell, is a book which reminds the reader of what it takes to be the kind of leader people would want to follow. The Right to Lead is a gift book from Thomas Nelson. The book is broken into seven sections with each being named after the character trait it covers. Each section contains a story about a leader who exemplifies the section title with quotes and observations backing up the theme of the chapter. The book is short in length, it can be read in about half an hour and the information is simple to understand. Sometimes, it is the simplest ideas which make a connection with us deep down at our core. Maxwell simply reminds us of what is needed to be an effective leader with a presentation which on its surface is simple, but covers some profound wisdom about effective leadership and life. If you are looking for a book with twenty chapters and in-depth analysis on the subject of leadership, this is not the book you are looking for. If you are looking for a gift for a graduate, a person who is new to leadership or even for an experienced leader, this book would make an excellent gift.
