John Maxwell’s Leadership Gold

Available as a Workshop

This workshop, based on the work of Dr. John C. Maxwell, covers 26 Leadership Principles mined from nearly 40 years of leading. Gaining leadership insight is a lot like mining for gold. You don’t set out to look for dirt, you look for nuggets. You’ll find them here.

  • Loneliness isn’t a requirement of leadership; it’s a consequence of selfishness.
  • To be successful in any endeavor, we need to learn how to get out of our own way.
  • The choices we make in critical moments form us and inform others about our true nature.
  • When you are at the front of the pack, everything you do attracts attention.
  • Passion keeps leaders going when others quit.
  • Leaders dignify their followers by paying attention to their input and concerns.
  • Success begins by knowing your purpose in life and growing to your maximum potential in your strength zone.
  • Good leaders balance their dreams with a sturdy dose of realism.
  • If you want to know whether a leader is successful and effective, don’t look exclusively at her; look to the health of the people she leads.
  • Recognize that people differ in the level of their natural abilities, and do not treat everyone the same.
  • You will wear yourself out trying to be an expert at everything. For leaders, it is better to know the most important things than to know everything.
  • Leaders who are willing to learn from their mistakes seldom repeat them.
  • Time is an equal-opportunity employer; everyone gets 24 hours a day—no more, no less—but not everybody gets the same return on their 24 hours.
  • The secret to success can be found in people’s daily agendas.
  • The best leaders prove their merit in the crucibles of life. They step forward to make tough choices, and they assume responsibility for the decisions they make.
  • The desire to leave for greener pastures is often motivated by the need to escape someone. People quit leaders, not companies.
  • The best basis for a leader’s influence comes from the relationships he or she establishes with followers.
  • Let go of what you have so that you can reach for something new.
  • Anytime you ignore the reality of change and try to control relationships you will have problems.
