In Developing the Leaders Around You John C. Maxwell contends that the pathway to growing an organization is to grow its leaders. The message of the book is simple: leaders can’t do it alone. Tosucceed at the highest levels, they must surround themselves with a team of influencers. Although leaders may see the big picture, they need other leaders at their side to make the picture a reality.
Most people don't like change. They revolt against it unless they can clearly see the advantage it brings. For that reason, when good leaders prepare to take action or make changes, they take people through a process to get them ready for it. - John Maxwell
