Summary

In this thoroughly revised and updated 25th-anniversary edition of his now-classic work, John C. Maxwell reveals how to develop the vision, value, influence, and motivation required of successful leaders.

Twenty-five years ago, John Maxwell published the book that forever transformed how we think about leadership. Developing the Leader Within You revolutionized the way leaders are made and in the process sold more than one million copies. Now John Maxwell returns to his classic text to include the leadership insights and practices he's learned in the decades since the book first appeared. Thoroughly revised and with two completely new chapters, this new edition updates the foundational principles for transformative leadership that Maxwell has used as a leader for more than 40 years. No matter what arena you are called to - family, church, business, nonprofit - the principles Maxwell shares will positively impact your own life and the lives of those around you. New listeners as well as longtime fans of Maxwell and the original book won't want to miss out on this one.

A must have for any level leader.

Would you listen to Developing the Leader Within You 2.0 again? Why?

Like Johns other books... they all inspire me to go back and listen to over and over.

What other book might you compare Developing the Leader Within You 2.0 to and why?

This compliments Johns other leadership books, and is similar to "The 5 Levels of Leadership." It's a must have addition to his collection.

Have you listened to any of John C. Maxwell’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

I have many of Johns other books and he is simply a pleasure to listen to. He is actually my favorite narrator and author.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

I could easily listen to this in one setting if time permitted.

Any additional comments?

This is my 8th book by John Maxwell, and I can't emphasis my recommendation for this book (and his others) enough. "Developing the Leader Within You 2.0" is a home run...The book covers the 5 levels of leadership in great detail while simplifying the process. Rather than get into the details of the book - I will say this... Whenever I recommend anything on leadership development I ALWAYS direct them to John Maxwell - and this book will be my 1st recommendation no matter what level of a leader I'm working with.

Leadership absorbed

This is one of his many books on leadership, not has a manager, but as an individual who seeks excellence.

The audio book is better that the written for it has a better impact when it is Mr Maxwell himself talking. If you read it, it is to study it. If you listen to it, it is to absorb it.

A great refresher for any leader!

John Maxwell's update to this book includes newer illustrations, fresh content, and some reconsidering of the older content. I found it full of helpful information as I seek to raise my leadership lid!

70% meat, 30% potatoes

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

I would recommend this book to a friend and will do so for my colleagues as well. John C Maxwell does a good job of providing a great list of opportunities to improve your leadership and guidelines by which to do so. The majority of the first portion of the book up until the last couple of chapters offers lots of great references to other leaders and quotes as well as good instructions on where your mindset should be when thinking as a Leader. My favorite sections discuss the levels of leadership, and how you grow the influence you have and the type of leadership you provide as you push to the next level. I also really appreciated the concept of consciously thinking farther and bigger for your organization.

A couple of chapters at the end are a bit too soft in their advice, but still this is a great read.

Have you listened to any of John C. Maxwell’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

I enjoyed John's narration; it is clear he is a talented orator.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

Man conveys lifelong lessons on growing your mindset to become a leader.

Great update!

This book is a great update on the first version, not because it’s better but because it has come from decades of growth and maturity. Maxwell shows that it’s ok to change your thinking as you mature and grow older. But as always the principles don’t..the foundations of success in life remain the same. This is a great book John, thank you for you 70 year old wisdom.
