Learn to lead well in life. Become the best leader you can.

Last night at XTR I had the privilege of teaching on leadership. Haven’t done this type of stuff for a while so I was excited about this opportunity. Going to use the John Maxwell classic book 21 Laws of Leadership as the basis for what I will teach.

Our desire at Xcel is to equip people with the tools to do life well. If they can lead well, starting with themselves first then hopefully we are doing just that.

Re-read the book. When I read this book for the first time some 10 years ago it changed my world. My thinking on leadership took an almighty whack…stuff like…

…everything rises and falls on leadership
…leadership is influence, nothing more, nothing less
…people buy-in to the leader first, then the vision
…you have to give up, to go up
…your leadership lid determines your leadership potential
and many more.

What about you? What’s your favourite leadership thought?
