Publisher's Summary

In this perfectly quick listen, #1 New York Times best-selling author John C. Maxwell explains how true leadership works. It is not generated by your title. In fact, being named to a position is the lowest of the five levels every effective leader achieves. To be more than a boss people are required to follow, you must master the ability to inspire and invest in people. You need to build a team that produces not only results, but also future leaders.
By combining the advice contained in this audiobook with skill and dedication, you can reach the pinnacle of leadership - where your influence extends beyond your immediate reach for the benefit of others.
Derived from material previously published in the Wall Street Journal best seller The 5 Levels of Leadership.

Critic Reviews

"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!" (Kevin Turner, COO, Microsoft)
"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." (Dan T. Cathy, President & Chief Operating Officer, Chick-fil-A, Inc.)
" 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." (Tim Sanders, former Chief Solutions Officer at Yahoo! and author of Today We Are Rich)

The book of Successful Lists

Would you try another book from John C. Maxwell and/or Chris Sorensen?

If you've read anything by John Maxwell then you know most everything in this book. I really, in many ways felt like it was the cliff notes version of John's outlook on leadership. While it's concepts are good I certainly would recommend it more to someone who is just starting down the road of Maxwell Leadership not to someone who's read him, or other leadership books extensively. Still my biggest gripe was the format of the book. It should have just been called "The Book of Successful Lists" because everything in this book was a list. After a while I was just pulling my hair out every time I heard "Here's the 5 things that..." because almost certainly within that 5 was another list of 3. It just was annoying to me and I lost interest about half way through. Again, if you're new to leadership then this might be a book for you, but for someone who's read up on it both the style and substance were lacking.

Loved the book but it felt redundant of his others...

Great book, but again it did feel a bit redundant of John Maxwell’s other leadership books! Overall, great read though!
