What's the number one question leadership expert John C. Maxwell is asked while conducting his leadership conferences? "How can I implement what you teach when I'm not the top leader?"
Is it possible to lead well when you're not the top dog? How about if the person you work for is a bad leader? The answer is a resounding yes
Welcome to The 360 Leader. People who desire to lead from the middle of organizations face unique challenges. And they are often held back by myths that prevent them from developing their influence. Dr. Maxwell, one of the globe's most trusted leadership mentors, debunks the myths, shows you how to overcome the challenges, and teaches you the skills you need to become a 360 leader.
If you have found yourself trying to lead from the middle of the organization, as the vast majority of professionals do, then you need Maxwell's insights. You have a unique opportunity to exercise influence in all directions-up (to the boss), across (among your peers), and down (to those you lead).
The good news is that your influence is greater than you know. Practice the disciplines of 360 leadership and the opportunities will be endless... for your organization, for your career, and for your life.

Reviews - What do customers think about The 360 Degree Leader: Developing Your Influence from Anywhere in the Organization?
Better on CD than in Print Jan 9, 2007
This book was purchased for the upper management staff of the company I work for by the President. Some of them decided to share it with their staff, so I borrowed the book. I purchased this because I was having a hard time getting through the book...it's not very engaging in print. However, it was much easier to get through on CD. The concepts are very common-sensical, but good reminders. Nothing too exciting or revolutionary, but can be useful.
Worth the investment Jan 9, 2007
This is very worthwhile read/listen. Helpful and packed full of ideas.
Quite good Feb 24, 2006
I surprised they screwed up the cover and said John read the book. I would think that professional editors would have caught this.
Enough nitpicking however. This is an excellent book of how to apply leadership principles in multiple directions. For those that feel frustrated in the middle of a company, a church, or any organization; I highly recommend this book to you.
Not read by the author Jan 19, 2006
As a long time fan I found the audio CD disappointing. Despite clearly stating the program is read by the author on the back of the CD case, it is not. Buyers beware. I have found the book much more enjoyable than the heavily abridged audio CD.
