Description and Reviews
From The Publisher:

"Everything rises and falls on leadership," says Dr. Maxwell, "but knowing how to lead is only half the battle. Understanding leadership and actually leading are two different activities." Dr. Maxwell explains that the key to transforming yourself from someone who understands leadership to a person who successfully leads in the real world is character. Your character qualities activate and empower your leadership ability, or they can stand in the way of your success! In his latest book, Dr. Maxwell discusses several other key attributes to being a good leader including:
  • Charisma: The First Impression Can Seal the Deal
  • Courage: One Person With Courage Is a Majority
  • Problem Solving: You Can't Let Your Problems Be a Problem
  • Teachability: To Keep Leading, Keep Learning
  • Vision: You can Seize Only What You Can See

If you look at all great leaders of the past and present, you'll find that they possess the 21 qualities that are discussed in The 21 Indispensable Qualities of a Leader. If you can become the leader you ought to be on the inside, you will be able to become the leader that you want to be on the outside. "If you are able to do that," says Maxwell, "you'll find there's nothing in this world you cannot do."


"The 21 Indispensable Qualities of a Leader gets straight to the heart of leadership issues. Maxwell once again touches on the process of developing the art of leadership by giving the reader practical tools and insights into developing the qualities found of great leaders."
—Ken Blanchard, coauthor, The One Minute Manager
