It helped me both learn and heal.
Maxwell begins by talking about the level of position. Just because you have a position doesn't make you a leader.
The second level is permission. People give you permission to lead them when you develop relationships with them. "People don't care how much you know until they know how much you care.
The third level is production. When you become productive, people respect you and follow you. Good leaders are good models.
The fourth level is people development. This is where a leader produces other leaders.
The fifth level is pinnacle. This is where you produce leaders who produce leaders.
Many of the concepts are repetitive if you have read other of Maxwell's books. John believes that "repetition is the mother of all learning"
I am one of his fans - I love his simplicity and style of writing. As a pastor, I can implement many of these principles in leading the people of our church. I think any pastor would benefit from this book, as well as any leader of any ministry or corporation.
The book closes with showing how John Wooden, coach of UCLA, was a level 5 leader. I enjoyed that part of the book very much, as I have always admired Coach Wooden.
