Now the author of over 60 books, John Maxwell has most definitely earned the right to teach people about the subject of influence. Having sold over 21 million books and trained over 5 million people in 173 countries, Maxwell's realm of influence is enormous. Yet there is something very humble about the way that he writes and the messages he gives.
At the heart of this book is the desire to see you make an impact and influence other people's lives; whether you are a leader of a church, a manager of people, a youth group leader, a parent or even a door to door salesman. John Maxwell's definition of mentoring is 'pouring your life into other people' and this mentality runs through the pages of this book as he teaches key principles such as understanding, listening, empowering and having faith in people, with each chapter ending with an 'Influence Checklist'.
Written in his authoritative, pragmatic manner, 'How to Influence People' is sure to be another key title to add to anyone's leadership bookshelf. Or, give it as a gift to someone entering a leadership or ministry role to encourage and develop them.
