Are leaders born or made? I would submit to you that great leaders can be made by following certain rules or laws. In John Maxwell’s “21 Irrefutable Laws of Leadership” he lays out the foundation upon which you can become a great leader.  

This book has been required reading at all of my companies.  

 

Here is a list of the laws below.

One: The Law of the Lid

Leadership ability determines a person’s level of effectiveness

 

Two: The Law of Influence

The true measure of leadership is influence-nothing more, nothing less

 

Three: The Law of Process

Leadership develops daily, not in a day

 

Four: The Law of Navigation

Anyone can steer the ship, but it takes a leader to chart the course

 

Five: The Law of Addition

Leaders add value by serving others

 

Six: The Law of Solid Ground

Trust is the foundation of leadership

 

Seven: The Law of Respect

People naturally follow leaders stronger than themselves

 

Eight: The Law of Magnetism

Who you are is who you attract

Leaders evaluate everything with a leadership bias

 

Ten: The Law of Empowerment

Only secure leaders give power to others

 

Eleven: The Law of Connection

Leaders touch a heart before they ask for a hand

 

Twelve: The Law of the Inner Circle

A leader’s potential is determined by those closest to him

 

Thirteen: The Law of the Picture

People do what people see

 

Fourteen: The Law of Buy-In

People buy into the leader, then the vision

 

Fifteen: The Law of the Big Mo

Momentum is a leader’s best friend

 

Sixteen: The Law of Victory

Leaders find a way for the team to win

 

Seventeen: The Law of Priorities

Leaders understand that activity is not necessarily accomplishment

 

Eighteen: The Law of Sacrifice

A leader must give up to go up

 

Nineteen: The Law of Timing

When to lead is as important as what do and where to go

 

Twenty: The Law of Explosive Growth

To add growth, lead followers. To multiply, lead leaders

 

Twenty-one: The Law of Legacy

The laws taught in this book, if applied, will shape you into a better leader regardless of your position, experience, or location. You can get a copy of “21 Irrefutable Laws of Leadership” by John Maxwell on Amazon here.
