The 21 Indispensable Qualities of a Leader: Becoming the Person Others Will Want to FollowThe 21 Indispensable Qualities of a Leader: Becoming the Person Others Will Want to Follow by John C. Maxwell

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

A great companion to Maxwell’s 21 Laws of Leadership. You can read this in one sitting, but it will take a lifetime to grasp it’s content fully. A chapter a week might be a better approach. The 21 Qualities:

3. COMMITMENT: It Separates Doers from Dreamers
4. COMMUNICATION: Without It You Travel Alone

6. COURAGE: One Person with Courage Is a Majority
7. DISCERNMENT: Put an End to Unsolved Mysteries
8. FOCUS: The Sharper It Is, the Sharper You Are
9. GENEROSITY: Your Candle Loses Nothing When It Lights Another
10. INITIATIVE: You Won’t Leave Home Without It
11. LISTENING: To Connect with Their Hearts, Use Your Ears
12. PASSION: Take This Life and Love It
13. POSITIVE ATTITUDE: If You Believe You Can, You Can
14. PROBLEM SOLVING: You Can’t Let Your Problems Be a Problem
15. RELATIONSHIPS: If You Get Along, They’ll Go Along
16. RESPONSIBILITY: If You Won’t Carry the Ball, You Can’t Lead the Team
17. SECURITY: Competence Never Compensates for Insecurity
18. SELF- DISCIPLINE: The First Person You Lead Is You
19. SERVANTHOOD: To Get Ahead, Put Others First
20. TEACHABILITY: To Keep Leading, Keep Learning
