Leadership Gold: Lessons I've Learned from a Lifetime of Leadingby John C Maxwell
Synopses & Reviews
Smart leaders learn from their own mistakes. Smarter ones learn from others' mistakes-and successes.
John C. Maxwell wants to help you become the smartest leader you can be by sharing Leadership Gold with you. After nearly forty years of leading, Maxwell has mined the gold so you don't have to. Each gold nugget is contained in one of twenty- six chapters designed to be a six-month mentorship from the international leadership expert. Each chapter contains detailed application exercises and a Mentoring Moment for leaders who desire to mentor others using the book.
Gaining leadership insight is a lot like mining for gold. You don't set out to look for the dirt. You look for the nuggets. You'll find them here.
"Maxwell (the bestselling The 21 Irrefutable Laws of Leadership) shares 26 nuggets of wisdom based on his nearly 40 years of leadership. A practical guide, complete with exercises and 'mentoring moments,' this collection offers a blend of advice, professional wisdom and personal recollection. Each chapter provides insight into a specific aspect of effective management. Some, such as 'The Best Leaders Are Listeners' and 'Keep Learning to Keep Leading,' are hardly groundbreaking, but others such as 'Don't Send Your Ducks to Eagle School' (a phrase borrowed from Jim Rohn) and 'For Everything You Gain, You Give Up Something' provide perspective into less-explored facets of successful leadership. Maxwell also covers some of the more challenging aspects of his topic: defining personal success, guarding against unrealistic thinking and determining why people quit. Throughout, Maxwell includes call-out quotes from well-known leaders such as Jack Welch and Frances Hesselbein as well as from surprising voices like J.K. Rowling and Joyce Brothers. A solid addition to a crowded field, this book will be of value to seasoned leaders as well as those just starting out." Publishers Weekly (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)
