    1. Homo Homini Lupus manisawolftomen/ The Five Levels of Leadership does one thing that just makes me batty: the five levels all start with the same letter, P. Why do you have to do that? The five P's of leadership. It sounds dumb because it is a dumb idea. Let's consider the 5 P's to see why this approach is so silly. Position, Permission, Production, People Development, and Pinnacle. Two of these descriptors fit their levels, three are misnomers. Position, dead on, this level is all about the pos [...]

    2. I REALLY enjoyed this book of John Maxwell's, in fact it's my favorite book of his that I've read so far. I know one of his best sellers of all time is the 21 Irrefutable Laws of Leadership, which I've also read. THAT book was more like a portrait of a leader in that if you ARE a true leader, these 21 Laws are the attributes you would possess. THIS book is much more clear in how to identify where you're at, and how to improve and move up to the next level. There are practical applications for an [...]

    3. What makes a good leader? A title? People skills? Getting work done? How about all of the above. In John Maxwell's new book, he explains what he calls the Five Levels of Leadership - position, permission, production, people development, and pinnacle - and tips for achieving each of these different levels in your own leadership roles. I really liked how organized this book was. The first few chapters provided the background behind the five levels of leadership and then the subsequent chapters wal [...]

    4. من رأيي الشخصي إذا قررت قراءة إحدى كتب ماكسويل، فهذا الكتاب سيكون الخيار الأمثل. لمن لم يقرأ كتب الإدارة والقيادة والتنمية الذاتية وما شابهها من كتب من هذا القبيل، يميل المؤلفون لتكرار نفس المحتوى بشكل مغاير عند إصدار كتب جديدة. فالكاتب "مجبر" على التأليف حتى لا يضمحل نجمه ال [...]

    5. Great book on improving yourself as a leader. Can be applied to all kinds of leadership positions. I found insights that will help me as a mother, Cub Scout leader and school volunteer. The five levels of leadership are position, permission, production, people development, and pinnacle. Some of my favorite quotes:"Good leaders are always good learners." p. 44"Successful leaders work hard to know themselves." p. 46"To be effective, leaders must always be learners. If you're through learning, you [...]

    6. A phenomenal book and a must read for those wanting to growth in their leadership abilities. This book keeps a very complicated topic simple and yet leaves the read with a clear idea of how to improve. This is another book that I will probably read over and over again. The book is a little repetitive, but I felt this was done deliberately to drive home the author's main points. It was done effectively and didn't take away from the book's quality.

    7. I am not really a Maxwell fan. He provides surface level information and stories. This book was no exception. I've been reading this for a work thing and we've gone over it every month since October of last year. Each section we have done invites a little bit of discussion but not enough. It's only the surface of leadership. He tries to pack in a ton of stuff but doesn't give enough examples. I prefer Simon Sinek's works to Maxwell's. It wasn't the worst book ever, but it definitely was not the [...]

    8. Leadership has always been a topic that interests me. I've read several of John Maxwell's books, and each time, I learn something new. The 5 Levels of Leadership outline actionable items on each level to help you improve as a leader. The author uses personal stories to help you understand the significance of their lesson. If you are interested in improving as a leader, or even just self-improvement as an influencer, this book is for you.

    9. Awesome book, with many takeaways. Talks through the 5 levels and makes a great argument for why each level is important and how to move up the leadership ladder.

    10. The 5 Levels of Leadership: Proven Steps to Maximize Your Potential by John C. Maxwell was chosen by Soundview Executive Book Summaries as one of the Top 30 Business Books of 2012E SOUNDVIEW REVIEW:John C. Maxwell remains one of the most popular authors whose books have been summarized by Soundview Executive Book Summaries. When one considers the reasons why Maxwell strikes a resonant chord time and again, a trio of potential answers become readily apparent. Maxwell’s books include straightfor [...]

    11. A great inspirational book about leadership and a good first book to read on the subject. Made me aware (again) of my many mistakes in the past, and made me aware of the importance of investing time in people. "Decide that people are worth it" is the key. People who think in short-term only will have a hard time accepting that it can take a lifetime to reach the pinnacle in your leadership career.To make the book perfect, there would have to be more examples and more stories (although the book d [...]

    12. Unquestionably, an amazing leadership book! The content was mostly solid material laid out in a simple way.Loved how he elaborated well on the height of leadership is to develop and lead leaders, not merely collect more followers.I highly recommend this book not only to established leaders, but to everyone in a position of leadership, to every teacher and every caretaker in all walks of life.

    13. Very insightful book. It takes elements of many other books I've read and put together succinctly with good stories to give context. It also has homework around self assessment and/or continuous improvement, so you can go back to this book over and over as move up and change jobs in your career.

    14. Amazing! I discovered reading this that at this point, I've only ever been to Level 2. The good thing is that I also learned that Level 2 is an important springboard for when you reach Levels 4 and 5, and that if you're good at Level 2 (which I am) then you can excel at the upper echelons (which I'm sure I will). No spoilers, if you ARE ALREADY A LEADER or HAVE BEEN A LEADER and see more leadership roles in your future, this book is definitely for you. It's like a cold shower - you thought you h [...]

    15. A few helpful ideas in here: that strong leaders need to master relationships (level 2), and then master generating results (level 3), and then master developing people (level 4).A lot of fluff in here. On the positive side, one can read the headings and get the idea!His writing was more clear in the first half of the book, when talking about levels 1-3. When he gets to developing people and teaching those people how to develop others, his suggestions were less concrete and helpful.

    16. Best leadership book i've read. He covers the 5 levels of leadership thoroughly from different angles. I left this book with a very good view of my own personal level in leadership , as well as the motivation to begin the work needed to climb to the next level. This is a book i will read annually.

    17. 5 stars for the content. I normally deduct points for writing that isn't stellar, however the content was that valuable. The writing (or the voice) can be read as conservative, religious, and patriarchal. But I believe as the reader one can still learn from the specific voice and glean the essential components of leadership and how to develop oneself (and others) over time.

    18. One of my all-time favourite books. I use the concepts to help my clients create great strategies to grow strong businesses filled with leaders. I recommend this book more often than any other I've read because the skills are key to understanding how you can have teams of committed and valuable people around you all the time.

    20. Great book from a legendThis is the first John Maxwell book I've read. I was a little hesitant because this is one of his more recent books. But I was most definitely not disappointed. Great read!

    21. Saya menemukan framework kepemimpinan yang sangat penting! Kata Maxwell, ada 5 level kepemimpinan: Level 1: jabatanLevel 2: hubungan baikLevel 3: produktivitasLevel 4: mengembangkan orang lainLevel 5: respekThis book is amazing! The best book this year

    22. In my 8 years as a manager and leader no book has ever helped me the way this one has. I now use it to train other managers and leaders. It's very clear and easy to understand and easily can help people in management to develop their leadership.

    23. Good breakdown of various leadership levels that one may find themselves in. Excellent guidance to identify where you are, what you can do to work towards the next level and pitfalls to avoid that will send you tumbling back to the beginning. Must read for leaders of any level!

    24. Inspiring! It must have been a grueling job to write something that's so specific and yet so universal. It helped me see myself more clearly, boosted my confidence, and I look forward to reading more books by him.

    25. It took me two years to finish this book, but honestly, it has taken me that long because I've had to grow and by the time I finished, I understood it. This book is essential for anyone looking to grow a team, business, or just become a better human being.

    26. Must read for all leaders!John Maxwell is always great and learning the 5 Levels of leadership was inspiring. Definitely a must read for leaders.

    27. This is the best book to give out at a company with managerial management because it show the importance of growth and helping others turn into leaders.
