The 360 Degree Leader by John Maxwell 2005 This is an awesome audiobook. And they are often held back by myths that prevent them from developing their influence. How about if the person you work for is a bad leader? همچنین نویسنده بارها از کتابهای قبلی خود دلیل و شاهد می آورد و مثال میزند و این کار گاهی لحن نویسنده را کمی تکبر آمیز کرده است. When leading down, place people where they will thrive, modeling the behaviours you with to see. Practice the disciplines of 360° leadership and the opportunities will be endless. And each chapter ends with a review of that chapter as well. If individuals learn and apply these principles even when starting in the lower levels of a company, they can become a leader within any group of people and organizational department.
Even if someone is reporting to someone else, they can use the three different skills of leading up, leading across, and leading down the enterprise. As he shares from his vast knowledge of leadership, he shares what it means to lead from anywhere in your business, church or organization. Maxwell offers guidance on how to be effective in any part of the organization and when you show value where you are then others will want to elevate you to the next level. 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. Also it sort of felt like this guy was primarily speaking to other middle-aged white male Christian managers and wanna-be managers in non-technical fields.
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. These myths include the Position Myth, Destination Myth, Influence Myth, Inexperience Myth, Freedom Myth, Potential Myth and the All-Or-Nothing Myth. Maxwell I like reading the books by John C. This book however calls out numerous references to almost all past works with such frequency, that I had trouble seeing past the author's self-advertising to get to the really good ideas at the heart of it all. The Air War College's Department of Leadership and Ethics has incorporated a small extract from this book into its curriculum, but including 360 Degree Leader at each level of the Air Force's professional military education would benefit the service's leaders of all ranks, both enlisted and officer.
Opinions expressed are my own and not those of Thomas Nelson. I strongly recommend this book and give it a Five Star Rating. I think this could be beneficial to someone early in their career, just to get some smarts on maneuvering in a business environment, but I have a feeling this wouldn't be the best of his books to look to for that. It's a valid question that Maxwell answers in The 360 Degree Leader. So not a bad book, and not a great book either. How about if the person you work for is a bad leader? It is not very applicable for upper management or entry level positions. As John has stated, most people forget about mid-level leaders, so having this perspective given, you literally know how to lead well from any position you may hold.
And they are often held back by myths that prevent them from developing their influence. Overall, I found this book to be a relaxing and easy read around 365 pages , if not an amazing one. These are written in great detail with a lot of thought provoking illustrations. For an author to reference past works once in a while is not a bad thing, and can add color and depth if one has read the referenced work. The advice in this book is really obvious and hokey. Debunking myths and shedding light on the challenges, John Maxwell offers specific principles for Leading Down, Leading Up, and Leading Across. Maxwell is asked while conducting his leadership conferences? This one however has been surprisingly chock full of nuggets that are worth going back over again and again.
It is not very applicable for upper management or entry level positions. There are tips of ways to understand and better improve your relationships in the any work place setting. Maxwell's book showed me that even if I am not the main leader, I still need to be developing my leadership skills, influence and potential right where I am. The reality is that most of the people in the organization other than the top leader are going to be asked to fulfill a vision that they did not generate. John shares how effective leaders get along with others even if there isn't initial agreement.

How about if the person you work for is a bad leader? ماکسول معتقد است که فرد میتواند از میانه ی سازمان و نه راس آن بر رئیس خود، افراد هم تراز خود و افراد زیر دست خود تاثیر بگذارد و حتی آنها را رهبری کند و البته برای هر یک از این سه گروه باید استراتژی های متفاوتی را در پیش گیرد. It may be the most important book he's written since 21 Irrefutable Laws of Leadership. He has some valuable things to say, though other more secular non-fiction writers do it better; seem more grounded in business practices. Maxwell is asked while conducting his leadership conferences? I've read a number of John Maxwell's books and have enjoyed them all for different reasons.
Personhood - Influence because of your personality. What a gem of a book on leadership. A good leader has great characters. In Part 4: Author detailed about the Principles practiced to Lead across In Part 5: Author detailed about the principles practiced to lead down Leaders help people succeed and any organizations depend on leaders for them to be successful, and they must have 360-Degree Leaders. I started this book in Leaders are found everywhere in an organisation and it is actually harder for people to lead from the middle of the organisation. What I love about this book is that it is broken down into three parts which are designed to help you know how to lead from the top down, the bottom up and from across the board.
