Publisher's Summary

Use this helpful book to learn about the leadership tools to fuel success, grow your team, and become the visionary you were meant to be.

True leadership isn't a matter of having a certain job or title. In fact, being chosen for a position is only the first of the five levels every effective leader achieves. To become more than "the boss" people follow only because they are required to, you have to master the ability to invest in people and inspire them. To grow further in your role, you must achieve results and build a team that produces. You need to help people to develop their skills to become leaders in their own right. And if you have the skill and dedication, you can reach the pinnacle of leadership - where experience will allow you to extend your influence beyond your immediate reach and time for the benefit of others.

The five levels of leadership are:

1. Position - People follow because they have to.

2. Permission - People follow because they want to.

3. Production - People follow because of what you have done for the organization.

4. People Development - People follow because of what you have done for them personally.

5. Pinnacle - People follow because of who you are and what you represent.

Through humor, in-depth insight, and examples, internationally recognized leadership expert John C. Maxwell describes each of these stages of leadership. He shows you how to master each level and rise up to the next to become a more influential, respected, and successful leader.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.

Excellent Leadership Book

This was an excellent book. I enjoyed hearing the author read it. The real world stories, especially the ones about Coach, at the end, were captivating and drew the listener in. This audio is worth listening to over and over again to capture all the wonderful nuggets. Grateful to have access to the PDFs to complete the exercises from the book.

A must read for leaders at any level.

Contains universal principles that apply to leaders at all levels and in any type of organization. Builds well off of the 21 Irrefutable Laws. Emphasizes the importance of humility, servitude, and true appreciation for people that are required to be a good leader. Dr. Maxwell is now on my list of the top 5 people I'd like to have dinner with.
