Developing the Leader Within you

Developing the Leader Within You

Author: John Maxwell

Year Published: 1993

Description: Developing the Leader Within You uses research and anecdotes to outline pastor and business expert John Maxwell’s principles for good leadership, which he believes have their roots in biblical teachings. Key themes include the difference between management and leadership and that the latter—distinguished by influence—is not an innate quality, but rather a skill that can be learned if there is a true desire to do so. It is one of more than 60 books written by Maxwell on leadership, one of which is a companion workbook that assists readers in applying its principles on a personal level.
