I've been asked a few times recently about what it means to be certified as a member of the John Maxwell Team.
This is a short introduction to the training and what it means that I'm certified by this organization.
As a member of the JMT I've got access to training in following "lanes".
1. Coaching training - taught by Christian Simpson
2. Speaker training - taught by Roddy Galbraith
3. Sales training - taught by Chris Robinson
4. Business building and career transition - taught by Paul Martinelli
Each of those is geared to make me a better speaker, coach, and business person.
But what's in it for you?
Well it also means I'm one of a select few that is authorized to take John's material and turn it into Masterminds, Lunch and Learns, keynotes, and half day or full day training for you or your business or team.
If you don't know who John Maxwell is you can look him up in Inc. Magazine where they voted John Maxwell as the #1 leadership and management expert in the world.
To join this team means I've been recognized as being an excellent speaker, coach, and developer of other leaders.
If you are interested I can develop a custom training around any of the following materials:
The 21 Irrefutable Laws of Leadership.
This material outlines the 21 Laws that determine the overall effectiveness of leaders. On a Lunch and Learn or Mastermind we can either outline all 21 or we can cover 2-3 laws in detail.
The laws include: Law of the Lid, Law of Influence, Law of Process, Law of Navigation, Law of Addition, Law of Solid Ground, Law of Respect, Law of Intuition, Law of Magnetism, Law of Connection, Law of Inner Circle, Law of Empowerment, Law of the Picture, Law of Buy-In, Law of Victory, Law of Momentum, Law of Priorities, Law of Sacrifice, Law of Timing, Law of Explosive Growth, Law of Legacy.
Sometimes You Win Sometimes you Learn
A focused study on the common experiences of loss. Even as a highly successful leadership guru John knows losing well. As does anyone who's been in the game. This study is focused on taking attendees on a well worn path in the pursuit of raw leadership by examining what every human has in common; those experiences we can all say, “I have been there.” Every one of us has experienced a disappointing loss in our own personal growth or leadership. How we have responded to those mistakes, errors, slips in judgment or just plain missing the goal has formed us even now. No bad experience has to ultimately defeat us. This workshop helps light the path to a more fulfilling life by examining loss, not from measuring what one does not have, but how loss can bring abundance. Every negative event or loss that occurs can become a great learning opportunity to take us all the newer and greater heights in our own lives.
Developing the Leaders Around You
In Developing the Leaders Around You we focus on the pathway to growing an organization by growing its leaders. The message is simple: leaders can’t do it alone. To succeed at the highest levels, they must surround themselves with a team of influencers. Although leaders may see the big picture, they need other leaders at their side to make the picture a reality. This study helps leaders learn how to effectively grow other leaders.
Today Matters gives attendees a road-map for growing their influence one day at a time. In the study success is seen as a process rather than an achievement. The focus is on learning to concentrate on the day at hand rather than looking in the rear-view mirror or gazing too far into the future. Most importantly, it identifies ways to adjust daily routines in order to cultivate healthy habits that will help them win in leadership and in life.
Great Leaders Ask Great Questions
Most successful people are very busy. They are often focused on achieving their goals and getting work done. Rarely do people slow down and become intentional about asking questions. This study is on learning to stop doing and start asking questions. That strategy has been highly effective for the best leaders. The goals for participants in this mastermind are for them to Understand why questions are so important, Become expert questioners of themselves and their teammates, and Leverage the questions they ask and the answers they receive to become better leaders.
15 Invaluable Laws of Growth
This study is focused on allowing you to reach your potential, by learning to be intentional about personal growth. This training curriculum will help you understand how personal growth really works, and how you can develop yourself to become a more effective and fulfilled individual. You will learn how to build up your sense of purpose and become more successful in every area of your life. Come alongside in your growth journey to become the person you are destined to be!
Everyone Communicates, Few Connect
Connecting Increases Your Influence in Every Situation and this study helps you learn how to connect. Learn how to identify with people and relate to others in a way that increases your influence with them. To be a successful leader, you need to learn to communicate in a way that connects with others. If you can connect with others—one-on-one, in groups, and with an audience—your sense of community improves, your ability to create teamwork increases, and your influence skyrockets. People who connect with others have better relationships, experience less conflict, and get more things done than those who cannot connect. Leaders who have learned the art of connection are able to communicate their ideas persuasively, establishing buy-in and attracting followers.
Few People Are Successful Unless a Lot of People Want Them To Be and this study helps you learn how to bring success to your team so that you can succeed. We venerate great leaders, and we have the tendency to assume their accomplishments came about regardless of the assistance they received from others. The truth, however, is that no leader would be great without the support and help of teammates. As a leader, you will never get ahead until your people are behind you.
Success is: knowing your purpose in life; growing to your maximum potential; sowing the seeds that benefit others. It is a rather simple recipe yet requires awareness, study, practice and mentoring to achieve. This study helps you become a REAL Success by learning to:
RELATE to others better as you understand relational rules. Adding value to people helps them to reach their full potential.
Recognize and build on the leadership potential in those around you and applying teamwork laws will help you take others to a higher level by EQUIPPING them with the proper skill sets.
Improve your ATTITUDE through daily practices, understanding the affect your attitude has on you and those around you, and adopting an attitude that makes challenges easier to overcome is key to your success.
Emulate what successful leaders do to remain at the top, LEADING others successfully to where you have gone and beyond, and influencing others from the heart and not just the head is the remaining piece of the puzzle for REAL success
Becoming a Person of Influence
This study focuses on practical and easy principles to apply to everyday life:
♦ Managers will see their employees respond with new enthusiasm
♦ Parents will connect with their children on a deeper level
♦ Coaches will see players blossom
♦ Pastors will reach more people
♦ Salespeople will break records
Becoming a Person of Influence helps you see how Everyone influences others. You don’t have to be in a high-profile occupation to be an influencer; whenever your life connects with another person, you exert influence. Everything you do– at home, at work, or at play—has an impact on the lives around you. No matter what your goals are in life, you can achieve them faster, you can be more effective and the contribution you make can be longer lasting if you learn to develop your influence
Put Your Dreams to the Test
What Do You Need to Make Your Dreams Come True? Your dream has power. It can inspire you. It can empower you. But will it reward you? Most people fail to realize their potential because their dream remains hypothetical. Put Your Dream to the Test takes your dream from ethereal to achievable. You will be shown how to crystallize your vision and galvanize your commitment by instructing you how to answer ‘yes’ to questions like:
♦ Is my dream really my dream?
♦ Am I depending on factors in my control to achieve my dream?
♦ Do I have a strategy to achieve my dream?
♦ Have I included the people I need to realize my dream?
♦ Am I willing to pay the price for my dream?
♦ Does my dream benefit others?
If you know the right questions to ask yourself, and if you can answer these questions in an affirmative way, you will have an excellent chance of being able to achieve your dreams. The more questions you can answer positively, the greater the likelihood of success! Have you reached your full potential and are you living your dream?
