John Maxwell is one of the world’s foremost authorities on Leadership. John has trained millions of people and written over 50 books. Like many other authorities on Leadership, John would agree that Leadership is about Setting Direction, Aligning People, Motivating and Inspiring.  However, in his book “The 21 Irrefutable Laws of Leadership” published in 2007, John breaks down leadership even further.  Jon Sarver gives his own unique summery of the laws and then an updated business and sports related perspective component.
