Candid Conversations: Trained Leader to Transformational Leader

Last week we announced the addition of new occasional bonus episodes called Candid Conversations to The John Maxwell Leadership Podcast. We’ve already heard great feedback from our podcast community about the first installment. If you missed it, you can listen to it here.

This week we have another Candid Conversation for you between John Maxwell and Mark Cole. In this conversations John and Mark sit in front of a live-stream social media audience to discuss one of the shifts in John’s newest book, Leadershift. This shift is the “Impact Shift,” which involves shifting from being a trained leader to a transformational leader (a leader who makes a positive impact on the lives of those they influence).

This conversation is all about moving, as John says, “from the head to the heart.” Listen now to learn how to be a leader who doesn’t just manage people, but who changes lives.

  1. I have a new name for the type of leader that goes from Trained to Transformational. From Transactional leadership to Transformational Leadership.

    I call it transposable leadership. A leadership style that is forever moving between the two but where both styles are infused with one another and the individual forever moving within the confines of this space. Space where the two types are blended and the leader himself moving backwards and forwards while never losing perspective or sight of the Big Picture.

  2. John, I picked up Leadershift at the IMC, and I’m using this book to help craft my message as I prepare to launch my JMT business. I had kind of a sad Ah-ha moment as I read through the book. “I had been trying all my life to become someone who others looked up to, because I was trying to get my value from them. I now realize, that if I had poured into them, instead of focusing on me. I would have become that person they would have admired. Not because I was impressive, but because I empowered them.” – Selah
