Program Overview

Unleash your leadership potential. No matter who you are, you can lead—and lead well.
That is the message New York Times bestselling author John C. Maxwell gives in this power-packed guidebook: Leadership 101. Here the consummate leader offers a succinct and inspiring framework for enhancing the leadership abilities you already possess.

John wrote Leadership 101 to help people be successful without providing information overload. As a “short course” on leadership, he says …”it contains the essentials gained from more than thirty years of leadership experience. It defines leadership, identifies a few traits every leader should develop, and shows the impact leadership can have on your life and the lives of those you lead.”

Come together with a small group of likeminded project management professionals and leaders who are dedicated and motivated to making effective and lasting changes in their lives in a collective group. As we move through each lesson, as a group we will bring together our ideas and opinions that will help shape and mold our understanding of the material in a way that is far superior to simply reading the book on your own. We will be combining all of our mind to becoming a master mind.
