by John C. Maxwell

|Comment:“”I am an optimistic thinker and have studied the characteristics of successful people for many years. From books like How to Win Friends and Influence People, to The Magic of Thinking Big, and Good to Great, I have read quite a few. I have listened to Tony Robbins, Paul Harvey, Zig Ziglarand countless motivational speakers. With all this background knowledge, I thought I had it down. That is, until I read The 21 Indispensable Qualities of a Leader by John Maxwell.
This is an amazing first read for anyone wanting to know what truly sets a leader apart from others. When looking at the 21 points in retrospect to my own business life, I found that Maxwell has definitely hit the nail on the head. This is a great read for anyone wanting to be a leader and is HIGHLY recommended for those just starting in the business world. If only I had this information back then.
As I read each chapter, I found myself yearning to learn more and my Type A personality wanted “action plans”. But alas this was only an overview of these qualities as John has other books and programs that cover the how to’s. I can say that I am now a John Maxwell follower and will definitely be reading his other books on leadership.”
