Attitude 101 by John Maxwell
In this book you will find out that attitudes have the power to lift up or tear down a team. The real leaders in business, in the professional community, in education, in government, and in the home also seem to draw upon a special cutting edge that separates them from the rest of society. The winner’s edge is not in a gifted birth, in a high IQ, or in talent. The winner’s edge is in the attitude, not aptitude, unfortunately, too many people resist that notion. They want to believe that talent alone (or talent with experience) is enough. But plenty of talented teams out there never amount to anything because of the attitudes. If you want outstanding results, you need good people with great talent and awesome attitudes. When attitudes go up, so does the potential of the team. When attitudes go down, the potential of the team goes with it. Lots was said on attitude: an attitude compounds when exposed to others, bad attitudes compound faster than good ones, attitudes are subjective, so identifying a wrong one can be difficult, attitude is really about how a person is. That overflows into how he acts.
