Great before an interview!!!!

I purchased and read this book a couple of years ago, only a few days before interviewing for a promotion at work. It caught my attention from the beginning and I couldn't put it down. During the interviewing process I answered many of the questions from info. that I had read out of (Becoming a Person of Influence.) I feel it was a major part of my getting the promotion. There were two others being interviewed that already had titles above mine and later ended up working for me. I have since purchased a number of copies of this book. I give one out to every new employee I hire, in which I'm putting in a supervisory role. It is an inspirational book along with educatinal. I would recommend it to anyone in a leadership role, work or otherwise. It is also a good rescource to go back & review now and then. It helps you stay on track as a supervisor or manager in business.

Another Maxwell masterpiece!

How will you impact the lives of others?For anyone who works with groups of people (and especially youth) you will find this book to be a great addition to your library. I especially enjoyed the worksheets at the end of each chapter as they were tangible ways of putting theory into practice.This book is very easy to read, but as with most good books in this category, take notes or be willing to re-read chapters as there is almost too much good information. Most books offer nuggets--this one is a serious gold rush.The leadership team I work with spent two weeks on Chapter 3 (A person of influence has Faith in People). I thought this was one of the best chapters in any of Maxwell's books and this will become a permanent part of our leadership program.A great gift for graduating college students or folks newly elected to positions of leadership.

Best book I've read this year

I just bought two more copies of this book. One is for my boss, who is a great boss, but will still benefit from the examples and lessons of this text. The other copy is for friends that I have told can borrow my copy of the book. This is too valuable a book to lend out, so I am buying another copy to lend to friends.You will be encouraged, challenged and uplifted intellectually and emotionally by the sound advice and warm examples shared by these authors.The book may be the sleeper in the line of "In Search of Excellence," and "Seven Habits of Successful People." It will help you sort through the goals of your life and help you create a legacy no matter your position in any organization.

An Excellent, Empowering, Caring Way of Motivating others.

For all of you people out there who want to be an excellent mentor, coach, friend, teacher, manager, peer, team mate, I highly recommend this awesome book of how to motivate and inspire others towards personal development and excellence. As a Training Manager, I found that the suggestions and principles mentioned in this book are things that I do in my job each and everyday...what a joy it was to read that these principles that I incorporate on the job everyday, are great habits, perspectives and behaviors that I should be doing....all nicely laid out and spelled out in this book! I found myself constantly saying things like, "Hey, I do that...Wow! I do that too!" And if you are not doing some of the things they recommend already, the book gives you a real genuine, no-nonsense approach of how you can....starting with little baby steps and working your way more until you reach your comfort zone! I am a strong proponent of mentoring, coaching, and empowering others toward personal development and excellence and I would strongly recommend this book to others who find themselves in the same roles, or to anyone who really wants to make a difference in making an impact & being a person of influence to others....:-)
