Publisher's Summary

Why do some people achieve great personal success, yet never succeed in building a business or making an impact in their organization? John C. Maxwell knows the answer. According to Maxwell, the greatest leadership principle that he has ever learned in over 35 years of leadership is that those closest to the leader will determine the success level of that leader. It’s not enough for a leader to have vision, energy, drive, and conviction. If you want to see your dream come to fruition, you must learn how to develop the leaders around you. 

Whether you’re the leader of a non-profit organization, small business, or Fortune 500 company, Developing the Leaders Around You can help you to take others to the limits of their potential and your organization to a whole new level. Learn how to 

  • Create an environment for potential leaders 
  • Identify and nurture future leaders 
  • Equip and develop leaders 
  • Form a dream team of leaders

Accompanying charts and assessments are available in the audiobook companion PDF download. PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.

Would Recommend

John C Maxwell did a excellent job with this book. Probably one of the most underrated books in his arsenal. He guides you from taking in a leader, to mentoring, and finally creating a team of leaders. All with tips and guides on how to keep progressing so you may do it over and over. It moves fast but filled with treasure troves. Bravo!

Don't hire good workers, hire potential leaders

The emphasis of developing those that follow you, so they can lead orhers. The last chapter really hits it home with the 4 prominent leads with different styles and personalities.

phenomenal information for any leader in any field

The audio book covers so many concepts, so many values, so much advice, it can be used everywhere, and most likely listening through, you will be inspired to further build up your capacity, or influence your organization to support the growth of leaders.

inspirational

Loved this. it is going on my "listen again" list! The only negative is I wish John Maxwell had narrated it himself - no disrespect to the man who did narrate it. He did a goof job.
