The Project

Using John Maxwell’s text and workbook the participants will be taken on a leadership journey. Weekly lessons and homework will mean each participant will put into play actual real life leadership strategies. This series requires thought, reflection and action…they must apply the principals learned to move onto the next chapter and law.

The program will be delivered over 18 sessions of 75 minutes each resulting in 22.5 hours of instruction. In each session we will review the previous week’s homework and discuss how the experience has changed each participant’s perspective. Next step is to dive directly into the day’s lesson (the expectation is each participant will have read the chapter(s)). Group discussion and interaction are essential to getting the most value out of the project.

The Course

1. The Law of the Lid

“Leadership ability is the lid that determines a person’s level of effectiveness. The lower an individual’s ability to lead means the lower the lid on their potential.

2. The Law of Influence

“The true measure of leadership is influence nothing more, nothing less.” What type of influence are we offering those who follow us?

3. The Law of Process

“Leadership Develops Daily, Not in a Day.” This means that you can tell where a person will end up by watching their daily habits and priorities

4. The Law of Navigation

Once you have determined the process to get where you are going personally, the next step is being able to navigate your business or organization through the challenges and obstacles to reach to success.

5. The Law of Addition

“Leaders add value by serving others.” “90 percent of all people who add value to others do so intentionally.”

6. The Law of Solid Ground

“Trust is the foundation of leadership” This is perhaps the greatest challenge leaders face in the 21st century.

7. The Law of Respect

“People naturally follow leaders stronger than themselves.” “One of the greatest potential pitfalls for natural leaders is relying on talent alone… good leaders rely on respect.

8. The Law of Intuition

“Every person possesses intuition” and “people are intuitive in their area of strength.” Therefore this law says that using intuition, “Leaders evaluate everything with a leadership bias.

9. The Law of Magnetism

“Who you are is who you attract,” or more simply, you will attract people like yourself. This can be a good thing in many cases, but is also a call to action to know your weaknesses and seek to grow out of them

10. The Law of Connection

“Leaders touch a heart before they ask for a hand.” Another way to say this is that people will not follow you until they are emotionally bought into the vision you are casting.

11. The Law of the Inner Circle

“A leader’s potential is determined by those closest to him.”

12. The Law of Empowerment

This law states that “only secure leaders give power to others.” This means that secure leaders spend their time “identifying leaders; building them up; giving them resources, authority, and responsibility; and then turning them loose to achieve…”

13. The Law of the Picture

“People do what people see.” This may be one of the highest laws in understanding that everything rises and falls on leadership.

14. The Law of Buy-In

“People buy into the leader, then the vision.”

15. The Law of Victory

“Leaders find a way for the team to win.”

16. The Law of the Big Mo

“Momentum is a leader’s best friend.”

17. The Law of Priorities

“Are you being productive, or just being busy?” “Leaders understand that activity is not necessarily about accomplishment.”

18. The Law of Sacrifice

“A leader must give up to go up.”

19. The Law of Timing

“When to lead is as important as what to do and where to go.”

20. The Law of Explosive Growth

“To add growth, lead followers,” but, “to multiply, lead leaders.”

21. The Law of Legacy

“A leader’s lasting value is measured by succession.”

The participants will be evaluated on how they complete each week’s homework assignment from the work book. The interaction they have with their other team members and the changes they are making in their weekly actions. A certificate will be issued to each successful participant.
