The 360-Degree Leader
IN THIS SUMMARY
Leaders today face the challenge of influencing people from all sides of an organization. Yet, many managers with leadership responsibilities feel that because they are not the main leader, they cannot influence their bosses, peers, and subordinates. People in the middle of an organization experience demands from leaders at the top, customers, expectations from followers, and vendors, all on a daily basis. These leaders have to get along with everyone and survive the dynamics of leadership.
In The 360-Degree Leader, John C. Maxwell exposes the myths and succinctly defines the principles leaders can use to bring value and influence to and from anywhere in the organization, enabling them to lead up, lead across, and lead down. Once leaders can incorporate these principles into their own style of management, they will be able to influence others in every direction.
