Maxwell Leadership Maxims

Years ago my big brother Dean invited me to a weekend seminar given by business leadership guru John C. Maxwell. I had a pile of his books, so enjoyed attending.

This week I found notes from that seminar whilst doing a search and rescue of old notebooks. Thought several of Maxwell’s leadership maxims might encourage us today… (methinks these apply to everyone, not just leaders!)

Your attitude will determine your altitude.”

“Teamwork makes dream work.”

“Encouragement is the oxygen of the soul.”

“Go out on a limb. Fruit is out on the limb. Don’t keep hugging the tree trunk.”

“Communicators take something complicated and make it simple.”

“People don’t care how much you know until they know how much you care.”

“Sacrifice is an ongoing process, not a one-time payment.”

And here’s a good one quoted in one of Maxwell’s books:

“A leader is the one who climbs the tallest tree, surveys the entire situation, and yells, ‘Wrong jungle!’” Stephen Covey
