The Leadership Handbook 26 Critical Lessons Every Leader Needs by John C. Maxwell-Review

Disclosure: BookLook Bloggers has provided me  with a complimentary copy of this book or advanced reading copy.

I am a big fan of John C. Maxwell. My office bookshelf is filled with his leadership books. When I saw  The Leadership Handbook 26 Critical Lessons Every Leader Needs available for review, I couldn't wait to read it. 

I am currently in college working on my BA in human resource management and one of the things I need to work on is leadership skills. I am not a great or even a good leader. John C. Maxwell's The Leadership Handbook 26 Critical Lessons Every Leader Needs is about to change all of that!

The Leadership Handbook 26 Critical Lessons Every Leader Needs is filled with 26 leadership lessons along with application exercises and mentoring moments. My favorite part of the book are the application exercises. Each exercise ask defining questions and gives tips on what you need to do to help you be a great leader. For example, in chapter 3 'Defining Moments Define Your Leadership',gives a list of twelve choices that you can use based on your values and priorities. This list which includes attitude and commitment is a great starting point to find out not only what type of leader you are but what kind of person.

About the book and John C. Maxwell:

New York Times best-selling author and leadership expert John Maxwell offers practical insight into learning how to lead the person who matters most-yourself.
The path to leadership begins with a question only few of us ask: How do I lead myself? John Maxwell presents twenty-six insights, not just for those who aspire to positions of leadership but also for veteran leaders who aim to build and improve upon the steps that led them to the front of the line.
Sound leadership will impact any endeavor, but sound leaders are prepared for risk-and importantly, failure-just as they point the way toward achievement. With application exercises and a "Mentoring Moment" to accompany each chapter, The Leadership Handbook presents a road map for a path many may cross but few choose to follow. "A leader," counsels Maxwell, "never has to recover from a good start."
