Many leaders think that leadership flows in one direct: from top to bottom. But if leadership is influence––nothing more, nothing less––then leadership can flow from bottom to top and from side to side. That’s called leading across. Leading across means leading your colleagues, your peers––people you don’t have positional leadership over. In today’s lesson, John Maxwell is going to teach the 7 phases of the leadership loop, which every leader who wishes to lead across must embrace.
After John’s lesson, Mark Cole will be joined by Chris Goede to discuss what they’ve learned as they’ve embraced these principles to lead across within the Maxwell Leadership organization.
Our BONUS resource for this episode is the “Leadership Loop Worksheet,” which includes fill-in-the-blank notes from John’s teaching. You can download the worksheet by visiting MaxwellPodcast.com/Loop and clicking “Download the Bonus Resource.”

really nice post. thanks for sharing beautiful content.
I loved this podcast that you guys did and listened to multiple times as it’s really helping me to understand and apply the leadership loop in my own leadership journey in my career, at home, and in my community. I’ve seen from my own experiences that it is true that the leadership comes as a privilege that you earn after you’ve done all other steps leading up to it This is a game changer for me as a young leader and thanks so much for putting this podcast together!
