Reviews - What do customers think about 21 Indispensable Qualities Of A Leader?

A Book for Leaders  May 13, 2007
This book helps to refresh and install new ideas which will help you become a better leader.
Abstract puff piece  May 7, 2007
Maxwell might have written the book on Leadership, but this isn't it.

This is a little book -- 156 undersized pages -- containing little information.

It's full of platitudes. "Refocus your attention." "Live your message." "Commitment starts in the heart."

Duh! How is anyone supposed to put these abstract ideas into practice?

The only way to understand leadership is to hear stories about effective leaders. About how, for example, they continued communicating during times of crisis when others would have not communicated. About how they worked overtime to fix their companies and inspired others in their organization. About how during wartime they welcomed input from any source and found a unique person with a unique perspective that allowed them to redraw their war plans and win.

But the only anecdotes in this book come at the start of each of the 21 brief chapters on a quality (like communication or dedication) that a leader needs. The other 80% of each chapter is a bunch of abstract rules like Communicate! Show Dedication! Passion Increases Your Willpower! This is all motherhood and apple pie. Only more abstract. And it's impossible to absorb or remember what Maxwell is talking about because he's just listing things you should do to be a leader.

Tell me one good story about a great leader like Winston Churchill, FDR, or JFK, and it would be worth another hundred pages of Maxwell's abstract thought.

The only reason I give this any stars is that I sense Maxwell has more to say and knows his stuff. But he's certainly not strutting it in this book. Try something else by Maxwell. Not this book, for this reader.

This is the kind of book I would purchase for a gift grab bag at the office. It won't offend anyone, but it won't change anyone either.
Good 'beginner's leadership book' --- didnt excite me;-(  Apr 21, 2007
This is the first leadership book I read. I like the way the author validates each of the 21 qualities of a leader by providing real-life stories of leaders.

Pros: short, easy-to-read, concise
Cons: not much substance, some of the exercises for the reader are far-fetched

Overall, a good read for a beginner to novice 'leadership' book reader.

Short and Sweet: an unbeatable combination  Apr 1, 2007
As a professor in Business and Management, this book is an often chosen title in my management and leadership courses. Perhaps initially because it is small, but all students inevitably end up commenting that they really appreciated the contents and learned a lot from it.

Leadership qualities are interesting phenomena, which can be replenished to an infinite degree. However, John Maxwell managed to highlight those qualities that are truly crucial toward leadership that will appeal to all categories of followers.

Encouraged by this book and many others, I published "The Awakened Leader: One Simple Leadership Style That Works Every Time, Everywhere." Readers who liked John Maxwell's works, and who want to remain informed of appropriate leadership in a time where globalization has become a part of our everyday life and has ignited increasing interdependency, multiplicity of mindsets and approaches, and multi-faceted workplaces, should take a look at this book.

"The Awakened Leader" presents a meta-leadership approach, which will guide you toward implementing the appropriate leadership style once you've assessed the situation, the followers, and the environment at hand. It is based on flexibility through open-mindedness, or wakefulness. And it completes the perspectives that Maxwell and other great leadership authors have presented us in the past decade: successful leadership of the self and others, based on proven trends of the past, the now, and the future.
Excellent layout  Mar 12, 2007
This book is great for beginners, and experienced professionals. You will definitley keep this book in your library for easy reference.
The layout is fantastic as it gives you a situation, and then ways to handle the situation. This layout definitley targets different learning styles of the reader.
