Over time, organizations rise or fall based on the quality of their long-range leadership. This is why companies must develop new generations of leaders, a strategy that requires a great deal of careful thought, planning, preparation, nurturing and follow-through. Among the authors of books on business topics, John C. Maxwell has carved out a special niche as an authority on leadership issues. In this book (which uses quotes and references from many sources, including religious ones), he explains why any company that expects to operate successfully into the future needs a comprehensive internal leadership development program. getAbstract credits this book with making a worthwhile contribution to recent writings on leadership and succession. Read it to learn why and how any vital organization must continuously develop new leaders.

9 years agoDo you have someone ready to replace you? If not, you should have. If yes, are you mentoring them to their fullest capacity? This book is great for anyone who is in leadership or managerial position. I recommend reading this, because this abstract will give you big things in short format.
