Ed Bastian
"John has taught The 5 Levels of Leadership to our leaders at Delta with great results. The insight and valuable principles he delivers has helped all of us - no matter the position or level - raise our effectiveness and improve our performance. John is a dynamic communicator with a heart for leadership that all can learn from."
Michael Useem
"The leader's greatest calling is building leadership in the coming generation, and John Maxwell's The 5 Levels of Leadership offers the roadmap for taking the journey to that highest level."
Tim Sanders
"The 5 Levels Of Leadership is John Maxwell's ultimate contribution to the topic. It's clear, helpful, inspiring and guaranteed to give any reader the ability to fulfill what Napoleon defined as the role of the leader: 'Define reality, then give hope.'"
Dave Ramsey
John Maxwell's books have been required reading for my leadership team for years. I can't think of anyone better at distilling decades of leadership experience into practical, approachable principles that anyone can apply at any level of leadership.
Kevin Turner
"John has been a mentor and teacher for me for many years and what I love most about him is that he has pushed and helped me personally go through the 5 Levels of Leadership!"
Dick Vermeil
"I first became acquainted with John Maxwell's material when I went back into coaching for the St. Louis Rams after a 14 year hiatus from NFL coaching....What a wealth of leadership and personal growth wisdom! I believe his 5 Levels of Leadership is his best work yet. I know you'll love it."
Dan T. Cathy
"When it comes to leadership, inspiration is just as important - if not more so - than information. John Maxwell offers both. The 5 Levels of Leadership will not only tell you how to climb higher, it will give you the motivation you need to reach the top."
