The 5 Leadership Competencies

I’ve talked and written at lengths on John Maxwell’s 5 Levels of Leadership as (one of my favourites) the foundation for all leadership development.

There’s always an answer

Regardless of the situation you and I are in right now, it’s better than the worst. Believe me, it could’ve been much worse. Humans have the tendency to magnify circumstances beyond proportions the moment they experience change, discomfort, or a setback. If you’ve lost a job recently — I can empathize. I know there are […]

Today matters

I was listening to John Maxwell’s introduction to his book Today Matters the other day. As always, I was stunned by the simplicity of his message, which was around how we evaluate our successes on a day-to-day basis. We exaggerate yesterdays: We do this all time, don’t we?

The Law of the Mirror

Adding value is the 3rd law, “The Law of the Mirror” from John Maxwell’s 15 Invaluable Laws of Growth. The premise is pretty straightforward, you must see value in yourself to add value in yourself.   The most important question that people ask when I say that is “how can I add value in myself?” That’s […]
