Following the format of Maxwell's previous successful derivatives How Successful People Think and Make Today Count , this pocket-sized abridgement of The 5 Levels of Leadership will reveal how successful leaders grow. The book will cover the five critical stages: Position -1. 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. von Maxwell, John C.
