Wow, I’m constantly amazed at how World Wide Group does things and this year’s Spring Leadership was phenomenal as was the last. The most impactful things for me this year was John Maxwell’s talk on “Developing Teams – The Laws of Teamwork” and the non-denominational service on Sunday morning that is also led by John Maxwell. There were a lot of great talks by upline Diamonds as well as Double Eagle Rubies (of which our direct sponsors/coaches were speaking) that were there to teach, uplift, motivate and inspire everyone.
I know I speak a lot of John Maxwell, so much my wife likes to think I have a man crush on him. He’s an amazing leader, teacher, inspirational speaker, preacher, and best of all he endorses what we do with World Wide Dreambuilders, that is very awesome. I’ve been reading so many of his books over the last few months and with each book I absorb so much however nothing is as impactful as seeing him live and getting to meet him in person while getting a few books signed.
This Leadership could not have come at a better time as it gets you fired up, motivated, inspired to move on and help our team move on as well so they can reach whatever goals they have. I’m excited to take the teaching from John on Laws of Teamwork and apply them to our business and to our team. We are very fortunate to have such an amazing person to tap into as I’m sure it would cost much much more to get this kind of teaching from him on our own.
Some good quotes from John were:
“The greatest gap between successful and unsuccessful people is the way they think”
"You are responsible for your attitude” Duh! So many people don’t realize this however.
“People with great attitudes have a teachable spirit”
One thing I did not know about John Maxwell and his organization Equip with the help of World Wide Dreambuilders, is they were the first organization on the scene of the Polish Political Tragedy to help with the massive loss of leadership. They were in there helping out with the lack of leadership and equipping the leaders left over for the crisis and how to help rebuild what was lost. That’s pretty damn impactful and I’m proud to be part of an organization that helps out in that way.
There was so much more at this event that I could go on and on, but the only way to take in the full experience is to actually go and find out for yourself. Looking forward to next year’s already!
