John C. Maxwell (Thomas Nelson, 2005) Developing the Leader Within You makes the theories of leadership personal. For those struggling to take the next step in their careers or who doubt their leadership abilities, the book offers practical methods for developing leadership skills.
Recognizing that some people have innate leadership-personality traits, the book provides direction for becoming more effective. But John Maxwell’s book debunks the myth that only an exclusive few are born to be leaders. Instead, he suggests that everyone benefits from learning self-discipline, seeking mentors and adding to their skills through training.
Maxwell defines leadership as influence and points out that a management title isn’t a prerequisite. Regardless of your career, position or personality, learn how to become an effective leader.
