In this perfectly compact read, #1 New York Times bestselling author John C. Maxwell explains how true leadership works.

It is not generated by your title. In fact, being named to a position is the lowest of the five levels every effective leader achieves. To be more than a boss people are required to follow, you must master the ability to inspire and invest in people. You need to build a team that produces not only results, but also future leaders. By combining the advice contained in these pages with skill and dedication, you can reach the pinnacle of leadership-where your influence extends beyond your immediate reach for the benefit of others.

Derived from material previously published in the Wall Street Journal bestseller The 5 Levels of Leadership.

Twenty-five years ago, John Maxwell published the book that forever transformed how we think about leadership. Developing the Leader Within You revolutionized the way leaders were made and, in the process, sold more than one million copies. John Maxwell now returns to his classic text to include the leadership insights and practices he has learned in the decades since the book first appeared.

The Developing the Leader Within You 2.0 Workbook is thoroughly revised to update the foundational principles for transformative leadership that Maxwell has used as a leader for more than forty years. This guide serves as a perfect companion to the book and will help individuals and groups dive deeper into the principles John Maxwell outlines for inspiring, motivating, and influencing others. This workbook will especially help readers explore the value of:

Achieving success using the Five Levels of LeadershipBuilding trust through personal integrityPrioritizing (it's not how hard you work, but how smart you work)Creating positive change and understanding the evolutionary process involvedDeveloping people, a leader's most appreciable assetsIdentifying and solving problems and preventing their recurrenceDefining and articulating a vision (or contagious dream) for your organizationBecome character-driven instead of emotion-drivenBuilding on the leadership skills you already possess

No matter what arena you are called to serve—family, church, business, nonprofit—the principles John Maxwell shares on effective leadership will positively impact your life and the lives of those around you. New readers as well as longtime fans of Maxwell and the original book won't want to miss out on this one.

Where do most people today turn for leadership? Some examine the world of politics. Some look for models in the entertainment industry. Many look to the world of business—to the successful stories of CEOs, management consultants, and theoreticians with PhDs. However, the truth is that the best source of leadership teaching today comes not from any of these sources but from the one true source: the Word of God. The Bible is the greatest source on leadership that has ever been written.

John Maxwell has spent decades researching and equipping others for leadership, and his primary source of leadership principles has always been the Word of God. In this study, he draws on the stories of the men and women in Scripture to show how they demonstrated what he calls "the 21 irrefutable laws of leadership." He also shows how some of the characters in the Bible failed to portray these leadership principles, and how that affected them and, in some cases, entire populations of people groups.

Sessions include in-depth studies on the principles of leadership followed by men and women such as Moses, Joshua, Deborah, Ruth, David, Elijah, Josiah, Esther, Nehemiah, Peter, Barnabas, and especially Jesus. Each session contains the following sections:

The Law: An overview of the law and how it operates (includes quotes from the book and discussion questions based on the principles covered)Biblical example: An overview of the primary character in the Bible who demonstrated that law or wrote about that lawAnother look: Bible study questions based on the highlighted passagesHighlighting the lesson: Questions that focus on the central teaching pointsLasting implications: Questions to help draw out personal conclusionsDaily assignments: Five sets of questions that guide readers on how to put the laws into effect during their week

This study has been designed to enhance readers' experience of working through John Maxwell's leadership materials and is intended both for individual use and for small groups.

Mornings are a madcap time for many of us. We wake up in a haze—often after hitting snooze a few times. Then we rush around to get ready and out the door so we can officially start the day. Before we know it, hours have slipped by without us accomplishing anything beyond downing a cup of coffee, dashing off a few emails, and dishing with our coworkers around the water cooler. By the time the workday wraps up, we’re so exhausted and defeated that any motivation to accomplish something in the evening has vanished.

But according to time management expert Laura Vanderkam, mornings hold the key to taking control of our schedules. If we use them wisely, we can build habits that will allow us to lead happier, more productive lives.

Drawing on real-life anecdotes and scientific research that shows why the early hours of the day are so important, Vanderkam reveals how successful people use mornings to help them accomplish things that are often impossible to take care of later in the day. While many of us are still in bed, these folks are scoring daily victories to improve their health, careers, and personal lives without sacrificing their sanity. For instance, former PepsiCo chairman and CEO Steve Reinemund would rise at 5:00 a.m., run four miles, pray, and eat breakfast with his family before heading to work to run a Fortune 500 company.

What the Most Successful People Do Before Breakfast is a fun, practical guide that will inspire you to rethink your morning routine and jump-start your life before the day has even begun.
