We recently released a brand-new digital course called “Leadershift,” where John C. Maxwell teaches on the 11 Essential Changes Every Leader Must Embrace. The Communication Shift is one of those important changes. In fact, it’s so important that we want to share it with you now. This episode includes John’s lesson from the online course, as well as Mark Cole and Richard Chancy walking through how to apply it.  John readily admits that making the communication shift was not a natural one for him. His upbringing, profession, and personality meant he leaned towards being a leader who directed rather than connected. However, he successfully made the shift, and now he shares the seven keys to connecting, as well as the difference it makes in the effectiveness of your leadership and your organization.  Being highly relational requires a great deal of intentionality. One must be intentional to listen, encourage, ask questions, and be generous—all to build authentic connection. Mark Cole and Richard Chancy walk through what it has looked like for them to put John’s advice into practice and make their own shifts from directing to connecting.   Our BONUS resource for this series is The Communication Shift Worksheet, which includes fill-in-the-blank notes and exercises from John’s teaching. You can download the worksheet by visiting MaxwellPodcast.com/connect and clicking “Download the Bonus Resource.”  References:  The Leadershift Online Course Leadershift by John C.

The John Maxwell Company has just wrapped up its third year of hosting the Maxwell Leadership Pro-Am at the beautiful TPC Sugarloaf. Join us for this unplugged conversation as John Maxwell and Mark Cole reflect on the event, Tiger’s monumental win at the Masters, and leadership principles that can be gleaned from the game of golf.   In today’s conversation, John delves into some key lessons, such as the ability to shift and make adjustments, why Tiger’s comeback was so epic, and what it means to be a rainmaker for your team or organization. It goes beyond charisma and extends to a practice John shares often: “Do something to create an opportunity for someone that they cannot do for themselves.” You don’t want to miss this conversation about golf, leadership, and competing at your best!

This week we’re sharing part two of a series called “Choosing Significance.” In this second episode, John Maxwell walks through the five areas where we need to get beyond ourselves to experience significance. As John says, one is too small a number for greatness. Mark Cole and Richard Chancy offer insights into how we as leaders can get and grow beyond ourselves. They offer advice on how to develop a purpose that sets us on a course to pursue something bigger than ourselves. Then they ask hard questions like how we get beyond the idea of “I deserve this.” John began this series with the idea that selfishness and significance are incompatible, and we end with the reminder that all leadership begins with giving, not getting.  Our BONUS resource for this series is the Choosing Significance Worksheet that includes fill-in-the-blank notes from John’s teaching.

This week we’re launching a new series called “Choosing Significance.” In this first episode, John Maxwell shares that selfishness and significance are incompatible. John discusses the three elements that will determine whether we live out of selfishness or significance: motives, maturity, and mindset. Mark Cole and Richard Chancy follow-up with a discussion about how motives, maturity, and mindset play out in our day-to-day lives, and they share examples of what these elements look like in their own lives at work and at home. They discuss the role of accepting responsibility in becoming a mature leader and end with a challenge to create meaning for someone in a way they can’t do for themselves. Our BONUS resource for this series is the Choosing Significance Worksheet that includes fill-in-the-blank notes from John’s teaching.

Today’s Candid Conversation takes place in Costa Rica, where John, Mark Cole (CEO of The John Maxwell Enterprise), and the team are in the middle of launching country transformation. John shares what is driving transformation, introduces us to several of the leaders making it happen, and offers a challenge for how you can be part of something bigger than yourself.

Redefining Failure

Redefining Failure

2019-04-2400:51:01

Fear of failure is often the toughest hurdle to jump in leadership. In this episode, John Maxwell, Mark Cole, and Richard Chancy flip the idea of failure on its head. Rather than allowing failure to slow down progress or even prevent us from starting in the first place, leaders can use the power of failure to “fail forward.” In this episode, you’ll learn four steps to fail forward. Failure, as Richard points out, is the first step in starting a business. It’s the first step is starting most things. The people you lead are counting on your ability to turn failure into resilience, and it’s a requirement for your growth as a leader. Our BONUS resource for this episode is the Redefining Failure Worksheet, which includes fill-in-the-blank notes from John’s teaching.

Your Influence Inventory

Your Influence Inventory

So, in this episode, we’re helping you do exactly that! (This is one episode when you’ll certainly want to have the bonus resource in hand.) John will walk you through five questions and exercises to take inventory and give you a big picture of your influence. At the end of the episode, you’ll have the opportunity to add up your answers and get a score to determine your measure of influence.
