You're thinking right now...right? Apr 11, 2005
Several years ago, one of the best leaders I know, someone who managed to rise to the top of every organization he was ever in --including the one he currently works for, told me the secret to his success. "Think like a leader," he said. I've often meditated on his words. I've discovered that they are absolutely true...
In his book, Maxwell explains how you can leverage the power of your thoughts to acheive unthinkable success: He gives you all the different ways leaders think and then shows you how to do it yourself. Just like my friend said: "Think like a leader." Order this book and find out how.
You may not use all of it.... Mar 16, 2005
You may not use ALL of the ideas in this book BUT if you find just one that helps you - then it is worth the investment. I believe each one of John Maxwell's types of thinking that are identified and briefly explained could be individual books all by themselves. The thing I appreciated most about "Thinking For a Change" was that it gave me "just enough" of what I was looking for. My suggestion is to read "Thinking.. " then pick the area you most need work on and delve deeper with other resources. Reading this book, gave me one key concept on strategic thinking which I was able to immediately apply to a business issue I was trying to figure out for the last 18 months. It made the difference in how I saw the problem and gave me a tool to successfully analyze it and ultimately move through it.
Whether you are in business or not, if you are looking for a fresh idea - this book may just get you started on that path, if you let it!
One of the best books I've ever read Jan 2, 2005
This book and John Maxwell's 21 Irrefutable Laws of a Leader are 2 of my all time favorite books. They have had tremendous impact on my life and my work
not worth the money Dec 26, 2004
A mediocre, intellectually lazy piece of work that will be of moderate value to beginners. Its basic points are valuable to those who have not been exposed to this structure, but it sorely lacks depth, committment to its subject, or the information value to hold the interest of a reader of above average mental capacity.
