360-Degree Leader Book Review by John Maxwell Book Review

John Maxwell is a world-renowned speaker, author, and leadership guru.  He is known throughout many different countries.  The 360 Degree Leader was written for the middle leaders.  On a macro scale every leader is a middle leaders.  Even if you are on the executive level you are a “middle manager”.  Middle leaders are leaders who have to answer to someone above them and lead someone below them. John addresses the myths of middle leaders, the challenges middle leaders face, and principles that middle leader must practice to lead up, across, and down.  He finishes up with identifying the value of middle leaders, and insight for creating and environment that unleashing middle leaders. 

The 360 Degree Leader is a great book for everyone.  This book is designed to help everyone in the organization grow and expand his or her leadership capabilities.  We live in a culture that recognizes and rewards outstanding individuals who possess more than base line skills (average).  If you are aspiring toward leadership, this book will give you a better understanding and foundation for expanding your leadership capabilities.  I highly recommend this book, if you are in leadership or desire to be in leadership, this book should be on your bookshelf!

Note: I received this book free from the publisher through the BookSneeze®.com  book review bloggers program. Other than that, neither the publisher, author nor anyone connected to them offered any influence on the content of my review.  The opinions I have expressed are entirely my own.
