John Maxwell Leadership ( Pt 1 ) How To Connect With People

The world’s most respected leadership expert gives five principles and five practices for breaking the invisible barrier to leadership and personal success.

You have a good idea but can’t convince your peers of its merit. You crafted a groundbreaking strategy, but the team trudges on in the same old way. Certain people move forward in their career while you seem to be stuck. If this describes you or someone you know, the problem is not the quality of what you have to offer. The problem is how you connect with people to create the results you desire.

In Everyone Communicates, Few Connect, John Maxwell takes readers through the Five Connecting Principles and the Five Connecting Practices of top-notch achievers. He believes that a person’s ability to create change and results in any organization-be it a company, church, nonprofit, or even a family-is directly tied to the ability to use the teachings of this book.

Over seven billion people are on our planet, yet not one of us have the same fingerprints, footprints, or even laugh. Every individual is authentic. Every person is an unrepeatable miracle. However, most of us do not feel special. Why?

In the book, Aspire, Kevin Hall recounts the following Hindu legend,

At one time all men on earth were gods, but men so sinned and abused the Divine that Brahma, the god of all gods, decided that the godhead should be taken away from man and hid some place where he would never again find it or abuse it.

“We will bury it deep in the earth,” said the other gods. “No,” said Brahma, “because man will dig down in the earth and find it.”

“The we will sink it in the deepest ocean,” they said. “No,” said Brahma, “because man will learn to dive and find it there , too.”

“We will hide it on the highest mountain,” they said. “No,” said Brahma, “because man will some day climg every mountain on earth and again capture the godhead.”

“Then we do not know where to hide it where he cannot find it,” said the lesser gods. “I will tell you,” said Brahma. “Hide it down in man himself. He will never think to look there.”

In her book, A Return to Love, Marianne Williamson recognizes our God-given gifts when she says, “Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure.”

As Stephen R. Covey so beautifully elucidates in his foreword, “this masterfully written book will help you understand that words have an inherent power, a force capable of lighting one′s paths and horizons. Used correctly and positively, words are the first building blocks for success and inner peace. Used incorrectly and negatively, they are capable of undermining even the best of intentions. This is true in business, in personal relationships, and every other walk of life.”

By focusing on eleven words-one per chapter–Aspire! shows how to use these words as building blocks for success and inner peace. The words, from the very familiar to the very unusual, will become touchstones in personal development and in business.
