    John Maxwell is one of the leading authorities on how to be an effective leader. This book contains a wealth of great examples and anecdotes to help illustrate his principles, but I found most of the principles to be based on common sense (but nevertheless very good reminders).

    • Treat others as you would want to be treated: encourage them, appreciate them, forgive them, listen to them, understand them.

    • In life you're either going to see people as your adversaries or your assets and that is how you will relate to them.

    • Be more concerned about making others feel good about themselves than you are making them feel good about you_don't try to sell other people on your, try to sell them on themselves.

    • The charismatic person will risk getting out of his comfort zone in order to make others feel comfortable.

    • Roadblocks to charisma are: pride, insecurity, moodiness, perfectionism, oversensitivity, negativism.

    • Those who are powerful in leadership understand that one of the key tasks of management is to find ways to grow people.

    • We motivate best from the other person's perspective.

    • Leadership is not a position that one is given. It is a position that one earns by proving faithful.

    • When a leader stumbles, others fall.


    A great review of all the things that are needed to be a great leader - especially the chapters on being an encourager, loving difficult people and how to be a person who can handle criticism.

    I received a complimentary e-copy of this book from David C Cook in exchange for a fair and unbiased review.
