John Maxwell

01 THE LID
THE LAW OF
Your leadership is like a lid or a ceiling on your organisation.
Your church or business will not rise beyond the level your
leadership allows. That’s why when a corporation or team
needs to be fixed, they fire the leader.

02
THE LAW OF INFLUENCE
Your leadership is like a lid or a ceiling on your organisation.
Your church or business will not rise beyond the level your
leadership allows. That’s why when a corporation or team
needs to be fixed, they fire the leader.

03
THE LAW OF PROCESS

04
THE LAW OF NAVIGATION

Leadership is learned over time. And it can be learned. People
skills, emotional strength, vision, momentum, and timing are all
areas that can and should be learned. Leaders are always
learners.

Anyone can steer the ship, but it takes a leader to chart the
course. Vision is defined as the ability to see the whole trip
before leaving the dock. A leader will also see obstacles before
others do. A leader sees more, sees farther, and sees before
others. A navigator (leader) listens – he finds out about
grassroots level reactions. Navigators balance optimism with
realism. Preparation is the key to good navigation. “It’s not the
size of the project, it’s the size of the leader that counts.”

05 HUTTON
THE LAW OF E.F.

06 GROUND
THE LAW OF SOLID

07RESPECT
THE LAW OF

08
THE LAW OF INTUITION

Hutton was America’s most influential stock market analyst.
When he spoke, everyone listened. When real leaders speak,
people automatically listen. Conversely, in any group or
church, you can identify the real leaders by looking for those
who people listen to.

Trust is the foundation for all effective leadership. When it
comes to leadership, there are no shortcuts. Building trust
requires competence, connection and character.

People naturally follow people stronger than themselves. Even
natural leaders tend to fall in behind those who they sense have
a higher “leadership quotient” than themselves.

Leaders evaluate everything with a Leadership bias. Leaders
see trends, resources and problems, and can read people.

09
THE LAW OF MAGNETISM

10
THE LAW OF CONNECTION

11INNER CIRCLE
THE LAW OF THE

12
THE LAW OF EMPOWERMENT

Leaders attract people like themselves. Who you are is who
you attract. (Mmmm… I thought like poles were meant to
repel!) Handy hint: “Staff” your weaknesses. If you only
attract followers, your organisation will be weak. Work to
attract leaders rather than followers if you want to build a
truly strong organisation.

You must touch the heart before you ask people to follow.
Communicate on the level of emotion first to make a personal
connection.

A leader’s potential is determined by those closest to him. “The
leader finds greatness in the group, and helps the members
find it in themselves.” (p113)

Only secure leaders give power to others. Mark Twain said,
“Great things can happen when you don’t care who gets the
credit.” (p127). Another point to ponder… “Great leaders gain
authority by giving it away.”

13
THE LAW OF REPRODUCTION

14 BUY-IN
THE LAW OF

15VICTORY
THE LAW OF

16
THE LAW OF MOMENTUM

It takes a leader to raise up a leader. Followers can’t do it, and
neither can institutional programs “It takes one to know one,
to show one, to grow one.” The potential of an organisation
depends on the growth of its leadership.

People buy in to the leader first, then the vision. If they don’t
like the leader but like the vision, they get a new leader. If they
don’t like the leader or the vision, they get a new leader. If they
don’t like the vison but like the leader, they get a new vision.

Leaders find a way for the team to win. “You can’t win
WITHOUT good athletes, but you CAN lose with them.” p162).
Unity of vision, diversity of skills plus a leader are needed for a
win.

You can’t steer a ship that isn’t moving forward. It takes a
leader to create forward motion.

17
THE LAW OF PRIORITIES

18
THE LAW OF SACRIFICE

19 TIMING
THE LAW OF

20 GROWTH
THE LAW OF EXPLOSIVE

Activity is not necessarily accomplishment. We need to learn
the difference. “A leader is the one who climbs the tallest tree,
surveys the entire situation, and yells “Wrong Jungle!”” (p176)
If you are a leader, you must learn the three “Rs”... a) what’s
Required b) what gives the greatest Return c) what brings the
greatest Reward.

A leader must give up to go up. Successful leaders must
maintain an attitude of sacrifice to turn around an organisation.
One sacrifice seldom brings success. As he worked to turn
around the Chrysler Corporation, Lee Iacocca slashed his own
salary to $1 per year.”When you beome a leader, you lose the
right to think about yourself.”

When to lead is as important as what to do and where to go.
Only the right action at the right time will bring success.

To add growth, lead followers. To multiply growth, lead leaders.
“It is my job to build the people who are going to build the
company.”

21LEGACY
THE LAW OF
A leader’s lasting value is measured by succession.
“Leadership is the one thing you can’t delegate. You either
exercise it – or abdicate it.”

21 Irrefutable Laws of Leadership

  • 1. 21 Laws Irrefutable of adership Le John Maxwell 01 THE LID THE LAW OF Your leadership is like a lid or a ceiling on your organisation. Your church or business will not rise beyond the level your leadership allows. That’s why when a corporation or team needs to be fixed, they fire the leader. 02 THE LAW OF INFLUENCE Your leadership is like a lid or a ceiling on your organisation. Your church or business will not rise beyond the level your leadership allows. That’s why when a corporation or team needs to be fixed, they fire the leader. 03 THE LAW OF PROCESS 04 THE LAW OF NAVIGATION Leadership is learned over time. And it can be learned. People skills, emotional strength, vision, momentum, and timing are all areas that can and should be learned. Leaders are always learners. Anyone can steer the ship, but it takes a leader to chart the course. Vision is defined as the ability to see the whole trip before leaving the dock. A leader will also see obstacles before others do. A leader sees more, sees farther, and sees before others. A navigator (leader) listens – he finds out about grassroots level reactions. Navigators balance optimism with realism. Preparation is the key to good navigation. “It’s not the size of the project, it’s the size of the leader that counts.” 05 HUTTON THE LAW OF E.F. 06 GROUND THE LAW OF SOLID 07RESPECT THE LAW OF 08 THE LAW OF INTUITION Hutton was America’s most influential stock market analyst. When he spoke, everyone listened. When real leaders speak, people automatically listen. Conversely, in any group or church, you can identify the real leaders by looking for those who people listen to. Trust is the foundation for all effective leadership. When it comes to leadership, there are no shortcuts. Building trust requires competence, connection and character. People naturally follow people stronger than themselves. Even natural leaders tend to fall in behind those who they sense have a higher “leadership quotient” than themselves. Leaders evaluate everything with a Leadership bias. Leaders see trends, resources and problems, and can read people. 09 THE LAW OF MAGNETISM 10 THE LAW OF CONNECTION 11INNER CIRCLE THE LAW OF THE 12 THE LAW OF EMPOWERMENT Leaders attract people like themselves. Who you are is who you attract. (Mmmm… I thought like poles were meant to repel!) Handy hint: “Staff” your weaknesses. If you only attract followers, your organisation will be weak. Work to attract leaders rather than followers if you want to build a truly strong organisation. You must touch the heart before you ask people to follow. Communicate on the level of emotion first to make a personal connection. A leader’s potential is determined by those closest to him. “The leader finds greatness in the group, and helps the members find it in themselves.” (p113) Only secure leaders give power to others. Mark Twain said, “Great things can happen when you don’t care who gets the credit.” (p127). Another point to ponder… “Great leaders gain authority by giving it away.” 13 THE LAW OF REPRODUCTION 14 BUY-IN THE LAW OF 15VICTORY THE LAW OF 16 THE LAW OF MOMENTUM It takes a leader to raise up a leader. Followers can’t do it, and neither can institutional programs “It takes one to know one, to show one, to grow one.” The potential of an organisation depends on the growth of its leadership. People buy in to the leader first, then the vision. If they don’t like the leader but like the vision, they get a new leader. If they don’t like the leader or the vision, they get a new leader. If they don’t like the vison but like the leader, they get a new vision. Leaders find a way for the team to win. “You can’t win WITHOUT good athletes, but you CAN lose with them.” p162). Unity of vision, diversity of skills plus a leader are needed for a win. You can’t steer a ship that isn’t moving forward. It takes a leader to create forward motion. 17 THE LAW OF PRIORITIES 18 THE LAW OF SACRIFICE 19 TIMING THE LAW OF 20 GROWTH THE LAW OF EXPLOSIVE Activity is not necessarily accomplishment. We need to learn the difference. “A leader is the one who climbs the tallest tree, surveys the entire situation, and yells “Wrong Jungle!”” (p176) If you are a leader, you must learn the three “Rs”... a) what’s Required b) what gives the greatest Return c) what brings the greatest Reward. A leader must give up to go up. Successful leaders must maintain an attitude of sacrifice to turn around an organisation. One sacrifice seldom brings success. As he worked to turn around the Chrysler Corporation, Lee Iacocca slashed his own salary to $1 per year.”When you beome a leader, you lose the right to think about yourself.” When to lead is as important as what to do and where to go. Only the right action at the right time will bring success. To add growth, lead followers. To multiply growth, lead leaders. “It is my job to build the people who are going to build the company.” 21LEGACY THE LAW OF A leader’s lasting value is measured by succession. “Leadership is the one thing you can’t delegate. You either exercise it – or abdicate it.”
