Being a true leader isn’t just about having a certain job or a title. It means so much more, especially where people are concerned. Once a leader is chosen to fill a position, the work is only beginning, because there are four more stages to follow. Once chosen, people follow a leader because they have to. Soon, their mindsets change and they begin to wonder if the leader truly deserves their position. Then they begin to follow the leader if they want to. Later, the people begin to keep track of what a leader has done for the organization, following a leader if the contribution means something significant. Then then begin to track what a leader has done for them personally, moving on to a personal stage. Finally, what every leader must strive towards, is the pinnacle, where people follow a leader because of what he is and what he represents. In this book, John Maxwell blends humour and real-life anecdotes to show readers how a leader grows and how he must reach his pinnacle.
