True leadership isn't a matter of having a certain job or title. In fact, being chosen for a position is only the first of the five levels every effective leader achieves. To become more than 'the boss' people follow only because they are required to, you have to master the ability to invest in people and inspire them. To grow further in your role, you must achieve results and build a team that produces. You need to help people to develop their skills to become leaders in their own right. And if you have the skill and dedication, you can reach the pinnacle of leadership-where experience will allow you to extend your influence beyond your immediate reach and time for the benefit of others. The 5 Levels of Leadership are: 1. Position - People follow because they have to. 2. Permission - People follow because they want to. 3. Production - People follow because of what you have done for the organization. 4. People Development - People follow because of what you have done for them personally. 5. Pinnacle - People follow because of who you are and what you represent. Through humor, in-depth insight, and examples, internationally recognized leadership expert John C. Maxwell describes each of these stages of leadership. He shows you how to master each level and rise up to the next to become a more influential, respected, and successful leader.

The Five steps Position, Permission, Production, People Development, and Pinnacle - resonate very well, and with the real world examples of these levels, the five make sense intuitively. Maxwell has done a good job of structuring and describing these levels, such that leaders strive toward the next levels. This is particularly important given some of the stats he quotes like, "15% (about 20.6million people) were actively disengaged. Gallup estimated that it cost employer $328 Billion" p63. If leadership can make an impact, and help reduce some of this disengagement, it will clearly make a huge difference in many organisations.
Great book. Easy to read and with which to relate.
I know that in my own leadership practices, I am now watching my own practices - striving to push my own abilities to that next leadership level.
I have just finished reading John Maxwell's book The Five Levels of Leadership! What a great read, in fact, I read it cover to cover in one reading...there was no good place to put it down so I kept reading. This book is a must have for corporations, non-profit organizations and small business leaders (and aspiring leaders). John defined leadership in a way that really makes sense. His book carefully reviews the process of leadership and helps us view leadership as an action, not a role or position. Thinking about leadership differently allows leaders to empower, inspire and lead teams in a way that builds people, relationships, success and legacies.
