Leadership Gold: Lessons I've Learned from a Lifetime of Leading

John C. Maxwell, Author . Thomas Nelson $25.99 (256p) ISBN 978-0-7852-1411-3

Maxwell (the bestselling The 21 Irrefutable Laws of Leadership ) shares 26 nuggets of wisdom based on his nearly 40 years of leadership. A practical guide, complete with exercises and “mentoring moments,” this collection offers a blend of advice, professional wisdom and personal recollection. Each chapter provides insight into a specific aspect of effective management. Some, such as “The Best Leaders Are Listeners” and “Keep Learning to Keep Leading,” are hardly groundbreaking, but others such as “Don't Send Your Ducks to Eagle School” (a phrase borrowed from Jim Rohn) and “For Everything You Gain, You Give Up Something” provide perspective into less-explored facets of successful leadership. Maxwell also covers some of the more challenging aspects of his topic: defining personal success, guarding against unrealistic thinking and determining why people quit. Throughout, Maxwell includes call-out quotes from well-known leaders such as Jack Welch and Frances Hesselbein as well as from surprising voices like J.K. Rowling and Joyce Brothers. A solid addition to a crowded field, this book will be of value to seasoned leaders as well as those just starting out. (Apr.)
