John Maxwell is a leadership expert and coach who has trained over 6-million leaders worldwide. He is the #1 New York Times bestselling author of The 21 Irrefutable Laws of Leadership and Developing the Leader Within You 2.0. John has completely transformed my life and business through his books and teachings. For nearly two decades, I have dreamed of spending some one-on-one mentoring time with him – to ‘pick his brain,’ gain insight, and learn more about what it takes to be a great, inspiring, successful leader. So, I was honored to have the opportunity to turn that dream into a reality and have lunch with him earlier this month.

In today’s episode, I share the top 10 lessons I learned from my lunch with John Maxwell. I discuss the difference between being a ‘people pleaser’ and being a ‘people leader’ and the lessons I learned from John about making the jump from pleasing others to leading them. I share the insight John provided about growing and developing company teams and the importance of being intentional.

“Leaders – let’s do everything we can to grow our character and grow in integrity so that we can make it to our finish line.” – Doug Smith
