5.0 out of 5 stars Great Guide for Life and Leadership May 25 2004
Format:Paperback
I really enjoyed this book, it was very well written and funny. I love the added stories and comic relief it provides. I would reccommend this to anyone who is a coach or a boss in the workplace. It is a top reference for leadership and how to be successful with it. I will use this book for a long time. The only thing that might be a concern is that the author is a preacher and he uses references to God sometimes. Might be a turn off for some, but it didnt bother me at all. He is an excellent writer and knows what he is talking about...

Format:Hardcover
John C. Maxwell has made a name for himself as an authority on leadership, landing on bestseller lists in both the Christian and general markets. That's quite an accomplishment, and it's one he has legitimately earned. In addition to writing more than two-dozen books, he has established several organizations geared toward training and equipping leaders and has developed numerous ancillary products like tape series, handbooks and manuals, and curriculum materials. In short, he's an expert in his field and one of the best communicators out there.
That said, you should know that Maxwell mines the wealth of information and resources he has amassed and recycles it all to create new books --- which means that one Maxwell book often overlaps into another one, which overlaps into another one, and so on. Longtime readers of Maxwell are well aware of this, having discovered a significant amount of familiar material in the context of information that's genuinely new. He's often criticized for this, but he still manages to sell a whole lot of books, so I suspect it isn't as much of a problem as his critics would like to believe.
In DEVELOPING THE LEADERS AROUND YOU, Maxwell provides both inspirational and practical assistance for leaders who are committed to helping others reach their leadership potential. In trademark Maxwell style, the author gets his point across by making the most of reader-friendly features like assessment tests, charts, cartoons, sports analogies, and mnemonic devices like original acronyms (such as RISE, Rewards Indicating Staff Expectations). He also sprinkles the text with well-chosen quotations --- some profound, some funny, but all of them relevant to the topic at hand.

4.0 out of 5 stars Representative Maxwell March 1 2002
By Robert Morris HALL OF FAME TOP 10 REVIEWER
Format:Hardcover
There is nothing original in this book but, as with other books produced by Maxwell, it is well-organized and well-written. Also timely. Maxwell focuses on three key objectives: Developing leadership within one's self (discussed in greater depth in his book Developing the Leader Within You), developing leadership within associates, and thereby maximizing the potential of all human assets within any organization, regardless of its size or nature. Maxwell has a tendency to re-cycle essentially the same ideas from one book to the next but all of them are sound. My own opinion is that the scope and depth of Noel Tichy's The Leadership Engine are greater and hence more valuable than Maxwell's in this volume. However, not damning with faint praise, this is a book which will probably be well-received by middle managers who are encouraged to read it by their supervisors. As for those supervisors, I think the severely limited time available to them for discretionary reading is best allocated elsewhere. My own recommendations to them include the aforementioned book by Tichy, Hamer's The Agenda, Buckingham and Coffman's First, Break All the Rules, O'Toole's Leading Change, Fitz-enz's The ROI of Human Capital, and The Essential Drucker.

Hi,
This is not a review.
The picture of book reads, "Developing the LEADERS AROUND you."
The written description reads, "Developing the LEADER WITHIN You."
The title given does not match the picture of the book. Help!

5.0 out of 5 stars Don't add, multiply! Jan. 25 2001
Format:Hardcover
The basic premise of this book is that you can multiply the efficiency of your organization by devoting time to developing the potential leaders around you. The idea is that once you commit to developing potential leaders, they in turn become leaders who can develop other leaders, and as the number of leaders grows, productivity increases. The book provides guidelines as to how to identify those individuals who have the potential for leadership, and then gives instruction on how to develop them. The guidelines and instruction Maxwell gives can be summarized as follows: choose the individuals who are the most willing to grow and learn new things as your potential leaders, and grow them by investing time in them, empowering them for success by delegating wisely and providing counsel. Maxwell views the development as a nurturing process, very relationally based. His ideas are sound (though I have oversimplified them here in the interest of brevity), and his examples and descriptions thorough. There is a somewhat general nature to his examples in some cases, mostly because the book is written for leaders of all types (coaches, supervisors, CEOs, parents...) and it is meant to be universal in scope. The book does contain a wealth of information, (I must have marked 10-12 pages in order to refer to them later) and gives the reader an opportunity for self-assessment with a questionnaire. Additionally, the universal quality of his principles enables individual application to unique situations, which is perhaps the most valuable quality of this fine book.
