John Maxwell teaches that people won’t go along with you unless they can get along with you! It’s as simple (and as difficult) as that. In this episode, John describes the reasons for conflict, the types of team relationships, and why working together increases our chances of winning together. 

Mark Cole, the CEO of The Maxwell Enterprise, and Richard Chancy follow John’s lesson with some insights into how this plays out in their day-to-day leadership. They encourage us to recognize the value in all levels of relationships, as well as to think through the type of people we need to be working to build relationships with.

Our BONUS resource for this series is the Building Relationships Worksheet, which includes fill-in-the-blank notes from John’s teaching. You can download the worksheet by visiting MaxwellPodcast.com/Relate and clicking “Download the Bonus Resource.”

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.”

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. You can download the worksheet by visiting MaxwellPodcast.com/significance and clicking “Download the Bonus Resource.”

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.

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.

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. You can download the worksheet by visiting MaxwellPodcast.com/failure and clicking “Download the Bonus Resource.”

John C. Maxwell says, “Leadership is influence, nothing more, nothing less.” Everyone has some level of influence, which is why John points out that everyone is a leader. But just because you have influence doesn’t mean you’re a good leader.

If you want to influence more people and grow your leadership capacity, you must evaluate the quality of your influence. 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.

Our BONUS resource for this series is the Influence Inventory Worksheet, which includes fill-in-the-blank notes and exercises from John’s teaching. You can download the worksheet by visiting MaxwellPodcast.com/influence and clicking “Download the Bonus Resource.”
