Thích series 101 của John Maxwell! Nói ngắn gọn cái gốc của vấn đề. Độ ngắn vừa đủ trong 1 lần đọc.

What? Trang bị = cho đội nhóm rõ trách nhiệm, cung cấp những gì cần thiết, tạo cơ hội cho họ phát triển, tạo thêm giá trị cho họ.

- Trang bị cho tập thể mạnh -> Tổ chức sẽ mạnh
- Tạo ra những nhà lãnh đạo -> Nhân rộng

How? Quyết tâm xây dựng đội nhóm, Chọn đúng người, cho họ vào đúng chỗ, tạo cơ hội, củng cố quan hệ cá nhân, giữ thái độ tích cực, hy sinh, bỏ người không phù hợp,...

Mới là 101 nên

Great insights from an amazing and inspirational leader and writer. It's a pocket book that works magic at lunch to stir your ideas how to lead and equip others better. I liked a lot of great ideas from this book, some of them:
- "Nothing of significance was every achieved by an individual acting alone. Look below the surface and you will find that all seemingly solo acts are really team efforts." (p.3)
- take time to equip your people and they will multiply your leaders.
- "Good leaders deliber

This is by far the best of the “101” books by John Maxwell. It is very basic but gives you a good understanding of what it takes to be a leader. I look forward to reading more from his in-depth books on the subject.

This is a compilation of Maxwell's other writings, with the focus here being on how to equip others. This is part of the 101 series, and more specifically, part of the R.E.A.L. work that Maxwell has created.

Es un libro excelente pero muy resumido, no profundiza en cada tema sino que los trata por la superficie, pero eso lo hace genial porque es como dar un repaso por todos los temas que aborda.

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

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

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. ...more

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. ...more
