Publisher's Summary

The most effective leaders across a wide variety of spectrums have achieved their success by beginning their journey with a question few bother to ask: How do I lead myself? As New York Times best-selling author and leadership expert John C. Maxwell says, "A leader never has to recover from a good start." So when a leader takes root by firmly establishing themselves in their field of expertise, preparing for every risk and failure imaginable, the fruit of their endeavors will spread throughout their career and impact profoundly those in whom they invest.

In The Leadership Handbook, Maxwell presents 26 insights intended to help build the leader within not only those aspiring to new positions of leadership, but also those veterans who aim to improve upon the steps that led them to the front of the line. Listeners will enjoy and benefit immensely from Maxwell's highly relatable principles, such as:

  • The best leaders are listeners
  • Keep your mind on the main thing
  • Don't manage your time - manage your life
  • Keep learning to keep leading
  • People quit people, not companies
  • And many more!

With application exercises and a "Mentoring Moment" to accompany each chapter, The Leadership Handbook presents a road map for a path many may cross but few choose to follow.

It was excellent but...

The principles were set out logically and painted a holistic view of leadership. I enjoyed the style and pitch of the book. The only really frustrating thing was that, either the narrator's voice was too low or the recording was too soft because I could only listen to it with earphones (while driving) Other titles before and after this one are clear enough for me to listen to without earphones, but this one simply wasn't. It meant that I often couldn't listen when I wanted to because I had forgotten to bring my earphones. Still, in the end, worth the inconvenience.

Simply Phenomenal!!!!

I can't begin to express enough how John C Maxwell did not miss the mark when he expressed his years of learning leadership. The Leadership Handbook 26 Critical Lessons Every Leaders Needs is a remarkable tool to use as a lesson "bible" that'll keep every leader new or seasoned growing for decades.

A Good Resource For Your Leadership Library.

I really like the teachings of John C. Maxwell. In my opinion I believe he is the leading authority on the subject of leadership. Although it's not good to put someone on a pedestal, I have found John C. Maxwell's teachings to be not only inspiring, but also very reflective. I believe that this audiobook is a resource to have in your personal library because it discusses about the important subject of developing yourself as a potential leader. If you decide to buy it I hope you enjoy listening to it.
