What do you dream of? In your wildest imagination, what do you see yourself doing? Now, what is standing between you and that dream? The answer is leadership. "Everything rises and falls on leadership," says Dr. John C. Maxwell, author of The 21 Irrefutable Laws of Leadership and now The 21 Indispensable Qualities of a Leader, "but knowing how to lead is only half the battle. Understanding leadership and actually leading are two different activities." The key to transforming yourself from someone who understands leadership to a person who successfully leads in the real world is character. Your character qualities activate and empower leadership - or they stand in the way of your success! Dr. Maxwell says, "Part of any leader's development comes from learning the laws of leadership, for those are the tools that teach how leadership works. But leaders are effective because of who they are on the inside. To go to the highest level of leadership, you must develop these character qualities from the inside out." If you look at all great leaders, you'll find that they possess the 21 qualities contained in this book, which is a complementary companion to The 21 Irrefutable Laws of Leadership. If you can become the leader you ought to be on the inside, you will be able to become the leader you want to be on the outside. "If you are able to do that," says Maxwell, "you'll find there's nothing in this world you cannot do." --
