Definition of Leadership

J.T. Taylor, M.A.

“The Definition of Leadership is …”

The definition of leadership is influence. This is the definition that John Maxwell gives. He also states that everything rises and falls on leadership. So, if these statements are true, then the job of a leader is to get things done through influencing others.

I like John’s definition of leadership because it is straight-forward (How many definitions of leadership only confuse you because everything is thrown into the description but the kitchen sink?) Having served on John’s staff I witnessed the strategies he used to influence others. Let me tell you, his strategies work.

If you are serious about becoming a truly effective leader, then you simply must take a look at what John Maxwell has to say. For those of you who aren’t familiar with John Maxwell, he is the author of a number of best selling books on leadership.

Every field has its masters, some call them gurus. John understands leadership like few others and he definitely falls into the “master of leadership” category. His book, The 21 Irrefutable Laws of Leadership summarizes his best thinking on leadership.
