Reading Club 6

Here's a book I just completed-took me months to complete this one! Penned by famed business writer and motivational speaker John C. Maxwell, he shares insights on what it takes to be a leader. the book is a character study of outstanding men and women throughout history, focusing on the qualities that are consistent in the lives of these great leaders. Some great leaders cited in this book include US Army General H. Norman Schwarzkopf, Nelson Mandela, Eric Liddle, Hariet Tubman and many more. Let me share some pointers which are useful :

 pg 7, the kind of leader others want to follow:
  • let go of your ego
  • become a good follower first
  • build positive relationships
  • work with excellence
  • rely on discipline, not emotion
  • make adding value your goal
  • give your power away
