I recently finished reading Developing the Leader Within You by John C. Maxwell with one of the emerging leaders in our church. It's the first John Maxwell book I've read and it was a good read. The target audience is people in a corporate, business setting, however without having to stretch too much you can apply it to whatever environment you find yourself working or serving in. Many of the topics such as Priorities, Integrity, Attitude, Vision and Self-Discipline are personal character skills that everybody would benefit from reading about.
I knew this would be a book I'd want to reference back to, so I kept a list of notes. The (h) items are highlights and the (a) items are actions or questions I asked myself to evaluate my life with. See the notes here: Download developing_the_leader_within_notes.html
