Book Recommendation: 21 Irrefutable Laws of Leadership

Must read

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


Nine: The Law of Intuition

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

A leader’s lasting value is measured by succession


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.
