I have read several other books by John Maxwell and was anxious to have the chance to read and review The 360◦ Leader. As with his other books he has a great way of sharing information in an easy to read and understand manner.
Most of the time when we think of leaders, we think of the boss. As he explains in the book, people lower on the management team can also be leaders. If you are in middle management, you can improve your leadership skills to improve your chances of moving up in the management team.
Besides, using it in your professional life you can also use some of this information in your personal life.
The book includes principles for each of the five sections of the book. The sections include, Myths of Leading from the Middle of an Organization, Challenges faces by the 360◦ Leader, Principles to Follow to Lead up, Principles to Lead Across and Principles to Lead Down.
I would recommend this book to both leaders and their employees so they can understand what others are dealing with.
I received a copy of the book from Thomas Nelson publishers as a Book Review Blogger. This is the only compensation I received and had no influence on the review.
