Maxwell helped me see most of our relational problems are in ourselves. I must take ownership of my shortcomings and strive to correct them. Along with my own housecleaning I must learn to build healthy relationships with others accepting that they too have housecleaning needs they may or may not ever address. Failure in either area on my part (housecleaning or skills building) can quickly destroy relationships I am currently blessed with. The first priority is learning how not to destroy relationships (get the beam out of my own eye), then learn to build good ones.
Maxwell's straightforward style reaches out to everyone using interpersonal examples from sports, pastoring, business, gangsters, marriage, Abraham Lincoln and other great leaders. Also, if you like to collect great quotes as I do, you will find dozens of good ones here (several from honest Abe).
I enjoyed reading the book but I have a few bones to pick that might bother some readers more or less so than they did me.Read more ›
"Our ability to build and maintain
human relationships is the single most important factor in how we get
along--in every area of our life."
Maxwell shows how this can be done in this book in this, his latest book,
provided that you use the 25 people principles that he clearly presents.
In reading it, I felt like I had in front of me an updated version HOW
TO WIN FRIENDS AND INFLUENCE PEOPLE--the Dale Carnegie
classic . . . what makes WINNING so valuable was the fact that it
has many examples that can be applied to any aspect of our work
lives; e.g., this one:
The best way to keep from stepping on other people's toes is to put
yourself in their shoes. In the 1930's, American Airways, which later
became American Airlines, had a tremendous problem with complaints
from passengers about lost luggage. LaMotte Cohn, general manager
of the airline at that time, tired to get his station managers to overcome
this issue, but he saw little progress. Finally he came upon an idea
to help the airline's personnel to see things from their customers' points
of view. Cohn asked all of the station managers from across the country
to fly to company headquarters for a meeting. Then he made sure that
every manager's luggage was lost in transit. Afterward, the airline
suddenly made a huge leap of efficiency in that area.
I also liked how Maxwell used humor to make other points, such as
in the case with this story:
A middle-aged man entered a cocktail lounge and walked directly
to the bar.Read more ›
Each chapter starts out with a story that illustrates the point for the chapter, which is then followed with a point-by-point description of each principle. John Maxwell also includes a variety of personal experiences he has had (including several failures and hard lessons) which makes it easy to identify with him.
I honestly could not find anything bad to say about this book. The organization, delivery, and style is flawless.
Full of quotes, references to other books, and just plain good advice, I highly recommend this book to anyone wanting to improve their relationships. 5 out of 5 stars.
There are many good ideas in this book for developing relationships. However, the ideas will seem somewhat recycled. If you have read Dale Carnegie's book on influencing people, there won't be much new for you in this book. In fact, I got a sense of deja vu from reading this book. About the only thing new is Maxwell's stories of how he dealt with relationships as a pastor, which if you are thinking of reading this book for business purposes, will not add much to what Carnegie has already said.
