Publisher's Summary

If you've already discovered New York Times best sellers The 21 Irrefutable Laws of Leadership and Failing Forward from John C. Maxwell, make your leadership library complete with his foundational classic, Developing the Leader Within You.In this enduring volume, which has already sold over 500,000 copies, Maxwell shares his heart for developing exceptional leaders. Timeless principles applied in your life - and the life of your organization - will bring about positive change through personal integrity and self-discipline. In his trademark style, Dr. Maxwell explores:
The True Definition of Leadership: "Leadership is influence. That's it. Nothing more; nothing less...he who thinketh he leadeth and hath no one following him is only taking a walk."
The Traits of Leadership: "Leadership is not an exclusive club for those who were 'born with it.' The traits that are the raw materials of leadership can be acquired. Link them up with desire and nothing can keep you from becoming a leader."
The Difference Between Management and Leadership: "Making sure the work is done is the accomplishment of a manager. Inspiring others to do better work is the accomplishment of a leader."No matter where you are on the leadership ladder, Developing the Leader Within You will inspire you to inspire others through committed, visionary leadership.

Great book, but...

This is a great book but has been poorly cut down. It has been "abridged" too much; and the top quality audio is unsatisfactory. It is still a great simple book nonetheless. If you enjoy other John Maxwell's stuffs, you will enjoy this one too.

Practical step by step advice

The book was read by the author John see Maxwell and he put a lot of emotion and lots of practicality and thought when writing this book. Great step-by-step accounts of how to develop The leader within you. Re-read this twice and made lots of notes.

This is a great practical book for people who are managers, or those who lead people.
