Good leaders ask great questions by John C. Maxwell

As the number-one New York Times best-selling author, John C. Maxwell is a very productive author indeed. His works cover leadership, relationships, self-development and attitudes to life.

Leadership sounds like a trendy word in today’s society, it always appears in job descriptions, CVs and interviews.

The more the word leadership shines in our life, the more deeply people think about it. 

Could leadership be cultivated or it is part of your nature? What is the requirement for a good leader?

“Good leaders ask great questions” will lead you to explore issues relating to leadership and how you can be a good leader layer by layer, like peeling an onion.

But this is not the only good thing about this book, it also deals with questions such as “how to succeed working under poor leadership as a follower,” “how to resolve conflict and lead challenging people,” “how to integrate service into the leadership role” are also discussed in the book. The author offers heart-felt suggestions from his own experience with difficult cases as examples. 

This is a book not only worth reading but also worth keeping in your book case and reading every now and then to get refreshed as well.

Author: John C. Maxwell
