Publisher's Summary

Why do some people achieve great personal success, yet never succeed in building a business or making an impact in their organization? John C. Maxwell knows the answer.

According to Maxwell, the greatest leadership principle that he has ever learned in over thirty-five years of leadership is that those closest to the leader will determine the success level of that leader. It's not enough for a leader to have vision, energy, drive, and conviction. If you want to see your dream come to fruition, you must learn how to develop the leaders around you.

Whether you're the leader of a non-profit organization, small business, or Fortune 500 company, Developing the Leaders Around You can help you to take others to the limits of their potential and your organization to a whole new level.

Learn how to:

  • Create an environment for potential leaders
  • Identify and nurture future leaders
  • Equip and develop leaders
  • Form a dream team of leaders
Listen to everything by John C. Maxwell.

Narrating a series of bullet points

Felt hard to get into. The book was just series after series of lists and bullet points.

I feel like I'll have to re listen just to study it and take formal notes

Developing the Leaders Around You

The author is on track with the book and is very insightful and almost inspriational at times throughout the audiobook. It contains the common sense approaches to developing the managers and or leaders around you. It expounds on the benefits of utilizing his methodology. I would recommmend it to all.

Very cliche

If you want to have someone read you every cliche business management proverb ever written, this is the book for you.

The last chapter was the best part.

Good outline for Leadership Development

The author outlines a great plan for leadership development of subordinates as well as developing oneself. I plan to look into his other books.

The author should not read his own book. The audio quality felt like it was recorded in the 1940s, rather than the 1990s.

Not on my favorites list

All good points, but the style of the book is just that, a huge list of bullet points. While Johns voice is clear it comes across sermon like and I had to speed it up to be tolerable. I found it boring and not able to hold my attention. Needs more story to sink in. I know he is a well respected authority on the subject but this just book did not do it for me.

Its John Maxwell reading John Maxwell

This is a leader development bible. So many detailed steps of finding leader, training leaders, building leaders and turning non-leaders into leaders. Just an incredible book with all the great John Maxwell references.
So much value.

So innovative, Comprehensive and yet simple to grasp

This is the quintessence of John C. Maxwell on how to develop leaders around you. It is practically, innovative and very comprehensive yet so simple to understand.!

Having served as a senior official of Nigeria in diplomacy, in leadership positions, and at the United Nations, for thirty five years on five continents, I recommend this book.?

The sound is muffling. The content is good

It is quite to listen to since the sound is muffling. After that, it depends on your will power.
