Developing the Leader Within You 2.0

About This Webinar

In this webinar based upon the book authored by John Maxwell we will cover how to develop yourself as a leader. When we are promoted we all want to be successful. We desire for people to follow. John Maxwell said it many years ago "leadership is about influence nothing more, nothing less." In this webinar we will discuss the skills and leadership characteristics to improve our ability to influence others and accomplish great things. According to John Maxwell, leadership is not necessarily something we are born with, it is a skill that we develop. However, most schools and colleges don't teach us how to be a leader. But in the book "Developing the Leader Within You 2.0" you will learn all the necessary behavior to be a good leader. No matter how good you are at your job, how ambitious your goals are and how much energy and persistence you have, if you aren't a leader, nothing guarantees your success, since "the effectiveness of your work is never beyond your ability to lead and influence others". In this book, John Maxwell will show how to develop the leadership. Thus, this book is the answer for you to become a true leader.
