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
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.
Dear Starbucks-
Also- every single civic/social/political group...........
EVERY FAMILY ............

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.

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.

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

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).

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