There’s a lot of great content in this episode, and you do not want to miss it! John Maxwell talks about the temptations that successful organizations face, and he offers business maxims to counteract them. The first key idea he shares is that you and your business never arrive. He ties that into our need to be growth-oriented rather than goal-oriented. Goals have a finish line, but growth does not. Mark Cole is quick to point out that goals are not bad, but they do need to be a part of an ongoing growth process. In a successful organization, leaders can be tempted to stop thinking big. John compares this challenge in business organizations to sports teams that switch from playing to win to playing to protect what they have. He points towards organizations that do something well and then want to stick to that same process for every venture moving forward. Richard Chancy reminds us that leaders make things happen! Our motivation may be a desire to win or a strong fear of losing, but either way we must be willing to work on ourselves, keep growing, and think BIG if we want to be successful over the long haul.

In part two of this series, John Maxwell continues to teach about the six fatal flaws that can sabotage a leader. To the three he shared in the last episode, he adds a lack of flexibility, an inability to meet goals consistently, and an inability to think strategically. John explains when these flaws are most likely to show up, as well as what to do when confronted with a potentially fatal flaw in your leadership life.   Mark Cole and Richard Chancy share how they’ve had to wrestle with some of these flaws. They bring up an interesting point: Sometimes, what begins as a strength becomes a flaw. They end the episode with a challenge to see if there might be one of these fatal flaws showing up in your story and causing you to plateau. If so, they encourage you to work through the steps John provides.   Our BONUS resource for this series is The Fatal Flaws of a Leader Worksheet, which includes fill-in-the-blank notes from John’s teaching.

In part one of this series, John Maxwell shares three of six fatal flaws of a leader. Whether you define the top as a professional position or a personal best, a leader who overlooks these traits will never make it to the top. John defines the first three fatal flaws of a leader as a lack of sensitivity towards people, a betrayal of trust, and the inability to develop people.   Mark Cole candidly shares three recent experiences that relate to each of these flaws, and he helps us see how they can play out in our everyday experiences if we’re not careful. Then Richard Chancy jumps in and provides a practical five-point plan for developing leaders. Mark and Richard end the hour with a challenge to use the next week to think through which fatal flaw we need to address. Then tell someone about it and take action!   Our BONUS resource for this series is The Fatal Flaws of a Leader Worksheet, which includes fill-in-the-blank notes from John’s teaching.

In July of 1976, John realized his calling in life was to add value to leaders. In this new Candid Conversation, John reflects on five major events he has participated in over the last eight days. He shows how they’re examples of and the fulfillment of his call to add value to leaders who multiply value to others. Are you ready to live out your calling?   John adds value to people because he values people. He wants to sow seeds of potential into them. His goal has always been to sow seeds and not worry about the harvest. In this candid conversation, he shares a powerful takeaway you can apply to your own leadership impact: If you add value to people with the hopes of getting a return, you do not get joy until you get a return. However, if you sow in order to add value to people, you receive joy in the moment!  For more episodes of The John Maxwell Leadership Podcast, visit MaxwellPodcast.com/episodes.

In part two of this series, John Maxwell focuses on the second key to growth, which states that growth means change. To reach for something new requires us to let go of something old. We must learn to embrace the process of learning, unlearning, and relearning if we want to make the most of our tomorrows. At 72 years old, John continues to live out this concept of growth as change. His example of getting rid of his treasure trove of notes and adopting new technology will inspire you to think through where you might need to let go of something you rely on so you can move towards something you want. Mark Cole (CEO of The John Maxwell Enterprise) and Richard Chancy share examples of how intentional change has resulted in significant growth in their lives. They also provide a series of questions to help you assess where you might need to change in order to grow. We have a special BONUS resource for this series: The Four Keys to Growth is a keynote address John did for the Live2Lead event. He provides more great content than we can share on the podcast, so we’re providing you with a video of the entire keynote. You can access the video by visiting MaxwellPodcast.com/Live2Lead and clicking “Download the Bonus Resource.”  References: Live2Lead 2019 Registration The 15 Invaluable Laws of Growth by John C.

In part one of this new series, John Maxwell shares the first of four keys to growth with humor, candor, and intensity. John reflects on the fact that as we age, our certainties decrease, but the ones that remain grow stronger. He takes this opportunity to share his fervent belief that if you want to win in life, you must commit yourself to personal growth every single day. Growth is the only guarantee that tomorrow will be better! Mark Cole and Richard Chancy help us think through how to apply the keys to growth that John shares. They challenge us to define what excellence looks like in our lives, as well as to create space for a monthly growth hour when we can evaluate the previous month, dream for the next one, and develop a daily implementation plan.  We have a special BONUS resource for this series: The 4 Keys to Growth is a keynote address John did for the Live2Lead event.

In this conversation between John Maxwell and Mark Cole you will have the opportunity to hear John express his overflowing appreciation for his wonderful Dad, as well as talk about what it means for him to be a father figure in this season of his life and career.   “Father” was John’s word for the year in 2018, and again in 2019. He lives this out by being intentional to bless and empower leaders, love them unconditionally, revel in their successes and provide fatherly counsel to those whom he mentors. Mark shares about the impact this has had on him and many others who have benefited from John’s fatherhood in their life. John and Mark encourage all of us to enjoy and spend time with our families this Father’s Day and to seek out a father figure if we do not have one.   For more episodes of The John Maxwell Leadership Podcast, visit MaxwellPodcast.com/episodes.

In part two of The Price Tag of Leadership Series, John walks through the final two truths about self-discipline that explain what makes it the biggest gamechanger in leadership. He reminds us that “Everything worthwhile is uphill––all the way.” But success doesn’t come just by climbing. It’s also dependent on consistency, which is why John warns us in this episode about coasting. Mark Cole and Richard Chancy elaborate on John’s idea that self-discipline is most easily developed in your strengths and passions. They point out that passion is not simply enthusiasm or drive. Instead, it’s what keeps you up at night. As John would say, your passion is the thing that you sing about, cry about, and dream about. The questions is: Are you willing to pay the price to attain it?

In this new series, John Maxwell discusses the price tag of leadership. If you’re familiar with John at all, you’ve likely heard him say, “Everything worthwhile is uphill––all the way.” That means there is always a cost associated with leadership and success.

I just started listening to your podcast. I am so Happy that I found this podcast. Today I realized you guys keep posting podcast that deal with exactly what I've been dealing with. Building Relationships and Price Tag of Leadership. I'm always trying to improve myself as a leader because I know I am not the perfect leader. I do have a question... How do you take criticism from someone that pushes all their work, meeting and anything else that requires them to stay late at work?
