John Maxwell’s Five Levels of Leadership

In yesterday’s video, John Maxwell talks about the leadership ideas from his best-selling book The 5 Levels of Leadership: Proven Steps to Maximize Your Potential. These are a must-learn for anyone that’s in a leadership role, or aspires to be in a leadership role.

Here are the five levels of leadership from the book synopsis:

  1. Position – People follow because they have to.
  2. Permission – People follow because they want to.
  3. Production – People follow because of what you have done for the organization.
  4. People Development – People follow because of what you have done for them personally.
  5. Pinnacle – People follow because of who you are and what you represent.

Read the book, or watch the video, and remember the author’s critical point at the end: know that your leadership level differs from person to person and work to improve the level with each person.
