This is my first book by John Maxwell. It seems that Christian bookstore like selling his books but I didn't find anything particularly Christian about it; and to me it was rather strange after I learned that he was a former successful Pastor! From what I gather I wonder if he's more of the seeker sensitive sort. Nevertheless I don't want to take away from the books' general principles and pointers on leadership and in particular mentoring. The biggest take away here is that of raising people to ...more

A great short book. You won't find it earth-shattering, but its a book you can spend 15 minutes on each morning with a cup of coffee. It will help you focus on the ways you can help all those around you become better. If you are ambitious, or want to leave something behind bigger than yourself, you can't make it happen without mentoring those who will continue the work after you leave. Whether it is your work or your family, great things don't end with you, they continue because of the work you ...more

This small, inexpensive, short (118 pages) should be read by every leader or anyone that wants to lead in your family, your work, school or other organization. You could read this in one sitting fairly easily.

Mentoring is about developing leaders and increasing your effectiveness.

The best way for leaders to grow any organization is to grow leaders and mentoring is a great way to build into people in many small ways that make a big difference.

Actually at the first time I am not interested to read this serious book. But after I start read it, the content is very good and give some inspiration. In our life, want it or not, we are dealing with situation that put us in position as leader. And this book give a wonderful tips about how to be a great leader (one of the phase is mentor).

If you don't know the content in the book you will find it eye-opening. If you know it, but haven't delivered on it, this will be helpful in getting you on track. If you know it, practice and are good at it - this will be a good refresher to help you get better. Good, quick read.

Good information. May be better in book format. One thing I noticed, having just finished Self-Improvement 101, Maxwell used some of the same material for both. By itself, it fit. Listening to the series felt like it wasn't anything new. I was disappointed.

To mentor people, apply the BEST formula (Believe, Encourage, Share, Trust) while being transparent, sensitive and attentive.

Yes, well, the greatness of the various 'Maxwell-isms' slightly diminishes with the frequency of their redundancy...

Helpful primer on the topic and the core issues. However, could go into a bit more clarity on the difference between mentoring, coaching, and development in general -- they're not the same thing.

Excellent! Maxwell is so simple and so profound at the same time. Loved this. So short but so rich. Highly recommend this!

That's what leadership is -- "influence." And when you think about it, all leaders have two things in common: they're going somewhere, and they're able to persuade others to go with them.

Solid read on mentoring and thinking about adding value to others, while thinking less of ourselves.

Good high level information on mentoring people in general. Not many specifics, but good 101 book. Very easy read.
