    John Maxell’s book, The Five Levels of Leadership, is an invaluable resource for organizations, ministries, families, and individuals seeking growth and development. Maxwell’s keen insights into the different levels of leadership, how to develop one’s self and others in each level, and the poignant personal evaluations for each reader are some of the reasons this book is priceless for everyone. Maxwell begins with the premise that the purpose of leadership is to produce more leaders and to help each person move toward the highest level of achievement they can reach. Then he lists and explains the five levels of leadership that he has seen and experienced. They are first leadership by position, the lowest, weakest, least helpful, most self-centered form of leadership. The second level is leadership by permission, the first level of leadership which can only be earned. It is this second level which make the following three levels possible. The third level of leadership is production as a result of the respect earned in level 2. The fourth level of leadership is people development as a result of productivity. Finally, the fifth level of leadership is the pinnacle of leadership – that level when your leadership extends its influence beyond your own reach. The fascinating value of this book is that Maxwell presents the information in such a manner that, though it is geared to positions of leadership within an organization, the principles it teaches are obviously intended for everyone’s personal development. The book banks on character, morals, and sound ethics. These principles are priceless for individuals of any society and in any relationship. One doesn’t need to hold a position of leadership in order to be a leader. In fact, Maxwell makes this point very clear when he advises that supervisors should promote the leaders present instead of attempting to make a leader out of the person they just promoted. Additionally, if every husband and wife utilized the information taught in this book, it would vastly improve their marriage through empowering each other and increasing mutual respect and trust. If parents would utilize the principles in this book, their children would potentially have a much greater relationship with their parents and other authority figures, have a healthier self-image, and live more productive, gratifying lives. The Five Levels of Leadership should be required reading in every high school, college, pre-marital, marital, and parenting class. Of course, it should also be required yearly reading for every employee, volunteer, and public leader. The true value of the five levels is the outward focus the levels create, always seeking to help grow others and base one’s level of success on how well others succeed. It is a book of servant leadership – a counter paradigm to the “dog-eat-dog” world that often characterizes corporate America as well as the private lives of most cultures. The greatest internal recommendation for this book is in the author’s own words, “...there is no better way to increase your positive impact on the world and add value to others than to increase your leadership ability.” What better reason could one give for reading a book on leadership?

    I've read his other book on the 21 laws of leadership and was also impressed with it. In this book, John outlines the levels of leadership, and from my perspective, the levels are very accurate. The first level is where you are assigned a leadership role, positional. The second, where you start to lead based on your own leadership style, either autocratic, or relational. Third, you become a productive leader with a developed style and team who produce for you. Forth, you start mentoring others in leadership, and fifth, the pinnacle, you develop and lead leaders!

    I have read many of John Maxwell's books, such as "Thinking for a Change" and "Today Matters", as well as "The 21 Indespensible Laws of Leadership". This book is full of great leadership principles as the others are.Maxwell begins by talking about the level of position. Just because you have a position doesn't make you a leader.The second level is permission. People give you permission to lead them when you develop relationships with them. "People don't care how much you know until they know how much you care.The third level is production. When you become productive, people respect you and follow you. Good leaders are good models.The fourth level is people development. This is where a leader produces other leaders.The fifth level is pinnacle. This is where you produce leaders who produce leaders.Many of the concepts are repetitive if you have read other of Maxwell's books. John believes that "repetition is the mother of all learning"I am one of his fans - I love his simplicity and style of writing. As a pastor, I can implement many of these principles in leading the people of our church. I think any pastor would benefit from this book, as well as any leader of any ministry or corporation.The book closes with showing how John Wooden, coach of UCLA, was a level 5 leader. I enjoyed that part of the book very much, as I have always admired Coach Wooden.

    Dr. John Maxwell has an AMAZING ability to boil complex ideas, concepts, and theories into simple easy to understand models. Here he defines leadership into 5 levels. Not everyone can, will, or want to achieve the Pinicle of leadership. Hence only less than 1% of leaders actually achieve the Pinicle. But we can all climb the ladder of leadership up to where can and will. Dr. John Maxwell explains the 5 levels of leadership in such a way that you can immediately start to take action on what we have learned. The 5 levels of Leadership has brought so much clarity to my understanding, implementing, and execution of leadership.William TehInvestor / Author / EntrepreneurTTTrends Investments

    It's a very easy read but with very powerful messages.I really like how they simplify the process and highlight things that you wouldn't think of. It also really helps put things in perspective.And most importantly, it really helps define what leadership is and how you should tackle it - sometimes in ways that are so simple you're shocked you didn't realize them before.

    Great Book. Love John Maxwell. He is definitely the Guru when it comes to Leadership Training. His book will make anyone re-evaluate their leadership capabilities. It will also provide sage wisdom on how to become a better leader. In my opinion it is a must read for anyone in any leadership position. John is a master story teller and uses this skill to illuminate the levels of leadership applicable to all walks of life. Thoroughly enjoyed the book and look forward to leveling up!

    One of the best books, from one of the greatest all time teachers. I gave it to my managers. (Along with "up your Business " Anderson, and a couple of Maxwell classics. The result is "Instant wisdom."I wish that I had this in my early years. I was so poor of a manager for so long.
