The 21 Indispensable Qualities of a Leader
John C. Maxwell

Many will argue that leaders are born, not made. I disagree. I believe that while some leaders are born, many more can be developed - and even those who are born will be better leaders if they are developed.

Conduct a search on for books on leadership and you will be presented with a list of 9,096 possibilities. The list includes weighty academic volumes, titles that have spiritual implications, and short little volumes of the "one-minute" variety.

Maxwell has helped me develop my own leadership qualities and serves as a text as I mentor others as they develop theirs.
