Another great little book from Maxwell on "equipping" or training leaders. I love how maxwell consistently teaches his readers to focus on adding value to other people. His message is always "other" centered instead of "self" centered. This book follows that same theme in that its all about finding, developing and leading other leaders on your team. Among other things Maxwell covers: How to invest in your team, What a potential leader looks like, and How to enlarge or add value to others. I reco ...more

This is my second book by John Maxwell. Similar to my review of Mentoring 101, I was taken aback that this book had nothing in particular that is distinctively Christian which makes it odd given how it's promoted so much among Christian circles. Other than Maxwell stating that he was a successful pastor in the book with the largest church in his denominiation, there's nothing explicitly Christian or Biblically driven here. I find that especially odd since his occupation was ministry when he firs ...more

This is the fourth book I have read by John Maxwell and have learned something from all, this particular one to me focuses so much on team work and how important it is. He states how you can not find one "act of genuine significance in the history of mankind" that was done alone. His writing is so powerful, educational, and motivational. I own 4 of the What Every Leader Needs to Know series and have now read all. I would love to keep reading them and strongly suggest them to other readers. There ...more

Great book for learning the basics of leading a team. Taught me that if I don't give people the means to succeed then they just won't; this meant I need to give more tools and be less stingy about how I do things. Ever since applying some of the principles in here I have noticed some more positive results in my life.

Recommends it for: Anyone
Written in his usual style ... Mr. Maxwell's ideas concerning the topic of "equipping" or training are presented with both humor and thought provoking anecdotes. This makes for an extremely easy read and the stories are easy relate to. Lots of good definitions and useful directives.
