Summary

Lack of self-awareness is the single greatest obstacle leaders face in their development, effectiveness, and advancement. Dr. John C. Maxwell will help any leader become more self-aware, focused, and confident.

With 50 years of leading and teaching experience, influential leadership expert and speaker John C. Maxwell can help you become your best leadership self.

In The Self-Aware Leader, Maxwell teaches you how to:

  • Gauge your effectiveness as a leader.
  • Make better choices that lead to success.
  • Discover and correct your own mistakes.
  • Improve your leadership with the team.
  • Make the right trades in your career.

Self-awareness is key for new and seasoned leaders who want to avoid micro-managing, handle criticism with grace, and give others the credit they deserve. Maxwell also aims to help current and new managers looking to identify their strengths, become a better learner, and improve listening skills.

When leaders don’t see themselves clearly, understand their strengths and weaknesses, or recognize their negative interactions with their team, they limit their influence and undermine their own effectiveness. What’s the solution? Become a self-aware leader.

John Maxwell Nut!

I love anything John Maxwell! I specifically was looking for something to help me with humility because, unfortunately, it’s not one of my strong suits. In the end though it was really helpful in getting me focused back on my growth journey which had gradually fallen off the past month or so. It was a great reminder for me.
