Overview

In his nearly thirty years of teaching leadership, John Maxwell has encountered this question again and again: How do I apply leadership principles if I'm not the boss? It's a valid question that Maxwell answers in The 360 Degree Leader. You don't have to be the main leader, asserts Maxwell, to make significant impact in your organization. Good leaders are not only capable of leading their followers but are also adept at leading their superiors and their peers. Debunking myths and shedding light on the challenges, John Maxwell offers specific principles for Leading Down, Leading Up, and Leading Across. 360-Degree Leaders can lead effectively, regardless of their position in an organization. By applying Maxwell's principles, you will expand your influence and ultimately be a more valuable team member.

Great Leadership book!

  • Book Rating: 5/5

This was a great audiobook! It explains the things you can do to get people to respect you, listen to you, praise you and work with you to accomplish goals. It provides some great steps to follow, much of which you may hear in other audio's, but this book does a great job of giving examples and commentary for each step. Easy listening.
