Author and motivational speaker Maxwell continues his influential leadership trainings in this program. Leadership development involves a focused, lifelong series of lessons and experiences through five levels: Position, Permission, Production, People Development, and Pinnacle. In addition to describing each level (upside, downside, assessment, growth guide), Maxwell explains how each relates to the tenets presented in his earlier work, The 21 Irrefutable Laws of Leadership. While less than one percent of all leaders will reach the Pinnacle, each one can grow their leadership level, enhancing the people and organization throughout one's career. -VERDICT Narrated by Maxwell, this audiobook is a must for his fans and an invaluable resource for all managerial professionals.
