Smart leaders learn from their own mistakes. Smarter ones learn from others’ mistakes—and successes.  

John C. Maxwell wants to help you become the smartest leader you can be by sharing Leadership Gold with you. After nearly forty years of leading, Maxwell has mined the gold so you don’t have to. Each gold nugget is contained in one of twenty- six chapters designed to be a six-month mentorship from the international leadership expert. Each chapter contains detailed application exercises and a “Mentoring Moment” for leaders who desire to mentor others using the book. 

Gaining leadership insight is a lot like mining for gold. You don’t set out to look for the dirt. You look for the nuggets. You’ll find them here.

I read Leadership Gold at a graduate class at California University of PA. I kept saying out loud as I was reading. Who is this guy? He seems to draw from the information I had been studying from my entire adult life. People like Zig Zigular, Brian Tracey, Tom Hopkins, Frank Bettger, Dale Carnegie, Fred Herman, JIm Rohn and Napoleon Hill. There is no one who seems to be able to combine the knowledge of these past self help sages better that John Maxwell.
