4.0 out of 5 stars Practical and easily applied 26 Nov 2011
Maxwell has put together a hierarchy of thinking that eventually takes you to what a true leader really is. He has an easy style and gives practical advice that one can easily apply. The book is easy to read and one can see the benefits manifest themselves very quickly. Not only would I recommend this book to CEOs and MDs but to all leaders that derive greater satisfaction in developing other leaders in their organizations

4.0 out of 5 stars The 5 Levels of Leadership 18 May 2012
By Rolf Dobelli TOP 500 REVIEWER
True leadership is a lifelong journey that requires constant learning. Best-selling personal development guru John C. Maxwell shows you how to understand your current level of leadership, and how to climb to the next rank, and the next. Maxwell defines the "five levels of leadership" as "position, permission, production, people development" and "pinnacle." He explains that to advance to higher levels, you must go beyond Level 1, where you use your position to influence others, and grow to Level 2, building relationships; Level 3, producing results; Level 4, developing your employees' talents; and Level 5, creating future leaders. Some of his advice seems clichéd, but Maxwell provides an easy-to-understand blueprint for leadership development. getAbstract recommends his book to current and aspiring leaders in any industry.
