In an unprecedented live event, on October 9, internationally renowned authority on leadership John C. Maxwell will share with a Gwinnett audience the cornerstone of his timeless principles for developing business leaders – a revelation found in the pages of his latest book.
Be there – Maxwell promises “a life-changing morning.”
The Gwinnett Business Journal, along with Gwinnett Technical College, is proud to sponsor this special live event with New York Times bestselling author John C. Maxwell as he debuts his new book on leadership management, The 15 Invaluable Laws of Growth.
Plan to be in the audience as Maxwell presents the secrets of his life-long journey to becoming an effective leader. At The Laws of Growth Event, Maxwell will help you understand how to pursue intentional behaviors to achieve personal growth – in your teams, among your managers and for yourself – as a means to satisfaction and success.
Maxwell has found the missing ingredient in today’s corporate culture and he is ready to share the winning formula with the Gwinnett business community, explaining, “This is the first time that I’ve taught these laws, although I’ve lived them for 40 years.” Maxwell has published 72 books with over 21 million copies sold worldwide yet, this debut of his latest work represents his first live book launch event – a premier educational experience you don’t want to miss!
The Laws of Growth Event is Tuesday, October 9, from 10 to 11:30 a.m., at 12Stone Church in Lawrenceville. With limited seating available, tickets are selling fast. Plus, VIP ticket-holders will enjoy prime seating and lunch with John Maxwell immediately following the event. Tickets start at $35, and VIP seating and lunch is just $195.
“John Maxwell’s focus and priorities align so closely with ours at Gwinnett Tech. He’s a life-long educator and his books have coached countless business leaders on management, growth and achievement,” says Sharon Bartels, president, Gwinnett Technical College. A portion of the event proceeds will benefit the Gwinnett Tech Foundation.
“We are ecstatic about being in Gwinnett. Through his non-profit organizations, John Maxwell has trained over five million leaders worldwide, and by way of his published works, tens of millions have gained leadership skills,” says Mark Cole, CEO of The John Maxwell Company. “Gwinnett has put an emphasis on leadership in every sector. That is the reason John has chosen to premier the debut of his book here.”
This third and final book in Maxwell’s Laws series (following The 21 Irrefutable Laws of Leadership and The 17 Indisputable Laws of Teamwork) will help you become a lifelong learner whose potential keeps increasing.
“You see, people are the most appreciable asset of any organization,” says Maxwell. In teaching The 15 Invaluable Laws of Growth, Maxwell will highlight effective ways to grow your people in the corporate setting. “When you grow you, everything around you gets better.”
Reinforcing the concept of ‘practicing what you preach,’ Maxwell has made the pursuit of personal growth the single most important requirement among corporate personnel in each of his companies. “Everyone must have a personal growth plan,” comments Cole. “The plan helps you pinpoint the areas in which you want to grow. What resources do you need? And who will help you along the way as coaches or mentors?”
Cole adds that as The John Maxwell Company counsels companies on leadership initiatives, these businesses see the most effective acceleration toward their objectives when they employ the third leg of the proverbial stool – personal growth – to their corporate growth objectives.
“The missing ingredient is not productivity or accountability,” says Cole, “It’s the lack of specific emphasis that corporate America places on growing the person.”
Secure your place at this historical event – held in Gwinnett County. You will gain insights for committing to individual growth to see the results of your efforts. As a leader, you will also learn how to create a culture and establish an environment that emphasizes personal decisions to grow with a purpose, stretch individual abilities and pursue lifelong dreams.
“People want to commit to trying new things or changing behaviors,” Cole shares. “Typically, a live presentation becomes the spark or catalyst that will help you put theory into practice.”
