Description and Reviews
From The Publisher:
Leaders change the world. They touch hearts. They inspire and invigorate; they sway history's course and the course of everyone who meets them. Are you a leader?
You can be. In The 21 Irrefutable Laws of Leadership Tested by Time, Jim Garlow takes a look at how ordinary people across time have used the 21 laws to become the most powerful, respected, and influential leaders in our world's history. You'll learn how individuals like Christopher Columbus, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., and St. Francis of Assisi put the 21 laws to work -- before they were ever written in a book. You'll also learn from those who failed to use sound principles and squandered their positions of power. The 21 Irrefutable Laws of Leadership Tested by Time will show you how to become a cutting-edge leader, full of godly authority and integrity. Throughout history, men and women have had opportunities to influence others. Some have succeeded; others have floundered. What made the difference?
Discover the answer -- and learn how to be a history-shaping leader yourself -- in this timely, well-researched book. Filled with stories of how people followed, or failed to follow, the 21 laws of leadership, this resource includes: General Robert E. Lee's use of The Law of Solid Ground -- He possessed unusual strength of character, which won him respect from his Confederate Army soldiers. R. G. LeTourneau's use of The Law of Inner Circle -- A teenage dropout, he invented earth-moving equipment that comprised 70 percent of the supplies used during WWII. Joan of Arc's use of The Law of Buy-In -- A French peasant, she presented her mission so compellingly that she held supreme command of military forces at age seventeen. Each story will teach you, helping you to evaluate your current effectiveness as a leader, to recognize your strengths, and to grow in areas of weakness. Don't let your own opportunities of influence slip by -- gain the guidance you need to be a life-changing leader through The 21 Irrefutable Laws of Leadership Tested by Time.
Highlighting key personalities from history, the author examines the validity of the 21 laws, demonstrating the success of those who followed them as well as the failures of those who didn’t.
The magnetism of Martin Luther King Jr. (Law #9) . . . Cicero’s ability to captivate an audience with his eloquence (Law #5) . . . the connection Will Rogers made with the common man (Law #10) . . . all of these leaders were using the 21 Laws of Leadership long before John Maxwell ever put pen to paper.
Through enlightening discussion, author James Garlow illustrates how these 21 key principles have been at work throughout history. Learn from the great General Robert E. Lee why the Law of Respect is so important when leading men into battle. Let the story of the Donner Party’s failed expedition demonstrate the significance of the Law of Navigation. Learn from church leader John Wesley how the Law of Process kept his converts steady in their faith while others floundered. These laws have been tested by history; now test them for yourself.
