Moral Authority: Why Do People Listen to You? (Part 2)

In this week’s episode, John Maxwell continues his lesson on how to gain the influence of those you lead. He points out that as you climb to higher levels in your influence, you don’t leave behind the previous levels, but instead, you build off of them.

John also talks about the importance of consistent growth as a leader. In his words, “When you stop growing, your people stop going.” Consistency gives your team a reason to trust you and depend on your guidance.

Mark Cole and Jason Brooks pick up the discussion portion of this episode with an insightful conversation about how leaders can sense, seize, and implement the value they see in others and those they lead to harness and exercise those qualities within them.

  1. Richard Chancy was larger than life. His mission to ignite passion in others made an impact on me. He will be greatly missed. God Speed, Richard. We love you, brother!

  2. Dear Mr. Maxwell,
    Thank you for your excellent contributions to humanity; I feed on them.
    I wish and hope that over time I can listen to your messages in Spanish, I don’t speak English.
    Have a nice day.

    Estimado señor Maxwell,
    Gracias por sus excelentes aportes a la humanidad; yo, me alimento de ellos.
    Deseo y espero que con el tiempo pueda escuchar sus mensajes en español, no hablo inglés.
    Que tenga un lindo día.

  3. Sorry to hear about Richard, my prayer and thoughts are with the family and John Maxwell Team. I will miss his words of encouragement and valuable views after every podcast. Sleep on Richard and see soon at the feet of Christ.

  4. I was sad to hear about Richard Chancy. I’ll miss his discussions with Mark Cole, and the way he brought such honesty to the podcast. I felt when I listened to Richard speak and ask questions, he wasn’t a man that had made it, but was in full pursuit of a journey towards greatness. My thoughts and prayers are with his family, and those that knew him well. I only knew him from the podcast, but I’m sure if I ever had met him, we would have gotten on well.
