2. The 5 Levels of Leadership 

Leaders need others to help them realize their goals. They need supporters that support the company’s objective and want to help it be accomplished. John Maxwell explains in The 5 Levels of Leadership how leaders develop and keep a following. Having the title of leader is merely the first stage, as he reveals in this book. In his leadership pyramid, which consists of five levels, Maxwell explains how to succeed at each one. It’s challenging to reach Level 5: Pinnacle. A person must devote their whole life to encouraging, developing, and investing in others. Their goal is to increase the number of leaders and their impact in a way that goes much beyond just them. As a consequence, they create a legacy that endures long after their leadership is done.
