Choosing Significance (Part 2)

This week we’re sharing part two of a series called “Choosing Significance.” In this second episode, John Maxwell walks through the five areas where we need to get beyond ourselves to experience significance. As John says, one is too small a number for greatness.

Mark Cole and Richard Chancy offer insights into how we as leaders can get and grow beyond ourselves. They offer advice on how to develop a purpose that sets us on a course to pursue something bigger than ourselves. They ask hard questions like how we get beyond the idea of “I deserve this.” John began this series with the idea that selfishness and significance are incompatible, and we end with the reminder that all leadership begins with giving, not getting.

Our BONUS resource for this series is the Choosing Significance Worksheet that includes fill-in-the-blank notes from John’s teaching. You can download the worksheet by clicking “Download the Bonus Resource” below.

  4. What s working

    I AM working. Quality of people – with whom I work – is very important to me. I am working with 10 in one business. How can I use this experience and expertise in other business?

    What s not working

    What business I am in an and what is ideal for me – with same quality of people – 10. I know I am 10 in some businesses, how can I become 10 in desirable businesses? I know I must specialize.

    What would you like to hear

    If I can I must become 10 in other business. How do we do it? How do I become profitable in this business and help others do the same? How can I do it living with integrity, honesty, congruency between words, deeds and choices?
