Although leadership is the hot topic on conference agendas and book tours, most people who find themselves in positions of leadership have little or no training for the role. They simply continue to make the same old mistakes.
With additional and newly updated material, this leadership classic reveals the most common errors that leaders consistently make-regardless of training or age-and the way to stop these bad habits from undermining their positive talents and accomplishments.
Whether you are leading a company, a ministry, a Girl Scout troop, or your family, The Top Ten Mistakes Leaders Make is a must-read for anyone who wants to lead others effectively.
"If you're like me, you've grown weary of the published cookie-cutter approaches on how to lead effectively. And so has Hans Finzel. He drills to the core of the current issues on effective leadership."
-Charles R. Swindoll, author and president of Dallas Theological Seminary
"This is one of the most practical books on leadership I have in my own library. If you are serious about becoming a better leader, you will want to read this book."
-John C. Maxwell, author, speaker, and founder of the INJOY Group
Dr. Hans Finzel is a successful author (Empowered Leaders, Change is Like a Slinky), consultant, and expert in the field of leadership.

Finzel is a real-life leadership practitioner with over twenty-five years of experience in many settings, including ten years training leaders in Vienna and throughout Eastern Europe before the fall of communism.

David R. Bess5 Stars Out Of 5July 4, 2009David R. BessWhile this book would certainly apply to all leadership, it is especially helpful for Christian leaders. The points the author makes here are practical and to the point -- there is no intellectual rambling present. Each chapter is devoted to a blunder common to leaders, and begins with a bullet point summary of the insights contained in the pages that follow. I benefited from reading all ten of the mistakes, but numbers two, six and eight really hit home. Chapter two is entitled, "Putting Paperwork before People: Confessions of a Type A Personality." The chapter title summarizes this one well. Chapter six is dubbed, "Dirty Delegation: Refusing to Relax and to Let Go." Sometimes we just have to relax and let others make their own mistakes as we delegate, realizing they are growing as people and as leaders in the process. Chapter eight is headed, "Missing the Clues of Corporate Culture: The Unseen Killer of Many Leaders." How many times have pastors and other church workers failed to come to grips with the culture of a congregation before seeking to affect change? Finzel defines culture as "the way we do things around here." Changing the culture of an organization is critical, but underestimating the power of the present culture can be disastrous for a leader.I thoroughly enjoyed this book, and recommend it highly. It is well worth the investment of the money and the time.
