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.
•Etc.
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.
