John Mxwll hs bn lrning nd tching ldrship throughout his ntir crr s Wslyn pstor nd sminr spkr. H livs nd brths ldrship. nd in this book h hs distilld th rt of ldrship. Wll, not so simpl, myb, but t lst undrstndbl.
Mny popl ttin positions of ldrship in th orgnistions, community nd othr sphrs of lif but with no guidnc of wht good ldrship ntils. John Mxwll did good job of writing smll book pckd with usful guidnc on how to b n ffctiv ldr. H dividd th book into thr prts. Th first prt dscribs how on cn dvlop s ldr, whilst th scond prt xplins th trits of ldr nd th lst prt is on th impct tht ldr cn hv on popl.
Mxwll stts tht h cn quickly tll who th rl ldr/influncr in group is, bcus whn this prson spks, vryon t th tbl listns, nods, nd bgins to xprss ssnt. Mxwll lrnd this t his first church whr h discovrd th rl ldr ws Clud, vn though Clud wsn't vn th church modrtor. Mxwll thn lrnd to influnc Clud nd lt Clud ld th othrs.
You cn s how prcticl this kind of book could b. W bumbl round for much of our livs, nd stumbl ovr ths "lws," trying to lrn to b ldrs, oftn not undrstnding wht wnt wrong. With som clr dirction -- nd tht's wht Mxwll provids -- you'll b bl to grow mor quickly s ldr.
Mxwll ddrsss wht shps prson's ttitud nd whthr or not ttitud cn b chngd. H ddrsss th common fling of filur nd shows how to ovrcom obstcls. Undrstnding succss s journy rthr thn dstintion, h xplins, is th ky to good ldrship. H concluds ttitud 101 with prcticl wys rdrs cn tk thir ttitud to th nxt lvl. s Dr. Mxwll sys, succss is: "Knowing your purpos in lif, Growing to rch your mximum potntil, Sowing sds tht bnfit othrs." Th book combins ll of th lmnts you'v probbly com to lik bout his books on ldrship, tmwork, thinking nd purposful living. Sing it ll togthr in brif form mks th mssg clrr somhow. His pigrms r wondrful. Hr's nothr of my fvorits for hlping othrs form good ttituds: "Vlu popl. Pris fforts. Rwrd prformnc."
For yrs, Mxwll hs bn clld on by mg-corportions to tch ldrship to thir xcutivs, so this nd som of his mor rcnt books r dsignd to b rd with profit by both Christin nd businss udincs.
I'v rd lot in th fild of ldrship, nd in my opinion, Mxwll is tops. H's not only humorous nd sy-to-rd, his nlysis of th ssntils of ldrship is brillint. If you'r church ldr, you'll wnt to rd this, nd thn buy copy for your pstor t Christms. If you'r pstor, this is book to bsorb nd thn circult mong your ly ldrs to ris thir lvl of ldrship. This will lso b n pprcitd gift to businss xcutiv.
