    a reviewer

    In this early work, leadership expert John C. Maxwell lays out 10 principles of leadership and team building. According to Maxwell, leaders are not born - instead, they develop their skills throughout a lifetime of practice. Perhaps because he was a minister for 25 years, Maxwell is somewhat overly fond of well-worn anecdotes and even ditties, but some readers will find that his charts, pull-quotes, bulleted lists and cartoons help make his ideas easily accessible. We recommend this book to beginning managers who want to learn leadership and to experienced ones who want to progress farther.

    everything you wanted to know about becoming a better leader

    Whether you are an established leader or just getting started, there is something in here that will benefit you. By clearly defining leadership and its five levels, Maxwell starts you off with a strong understanding of the type of leader you can become, and how close you currently are to achieving it. He then brings clarity to the obstacles that may be in your path and shows you how to clear them out of the way. He helps you to set your priorities, check your integrity, learn how to initiate positive change, and become a problem solver. He stresses the importance of attitude, people, vision and self-discipline. In the end, he shows you not only how to develop your own leadership ability, but how to start developing others as well. Though sometimes choppy in its presentation, with maybe a few too many quotes and cliches, the content here is top notch. If you are a Maxwell reader, you will see repeats of this material in his other books. But then, some things are worth repeating. Larry Hehn, author of Get the Prize: Nine Keys for a Life of Victory

    Potential/Leaders Always Welcome Insite and Development!

    Rev. Maxwell's insite and approach to Christian and business leadership skills were a breath of fresh air. Given vivid and current examples and a step by step approach to developing within, made not only this book enjoyable to read, but also a useful tool for soldiers that I must train to develop into Leaders of Tomorrow. And yes, 'Developing the Leaders Around You,' will be the next book handed out to them.
