From John Maxwell’s The 21 Irrefutable Laws of Leadership
To Add Growth, Lead Followers – To Multiply, Lead Leaders
Develop Leaders at Liberty National … not just Followers:
You can grow by leading followers, but your growth will be limited. To maximize your leadership and help your organization reach explosive growth, develop leaders. There is no other way to do it. You can personally lead followers, but only leaders can help to create other leaders.
Leaders’ math vs. Followers’ math:
Leaders who attract followers but never develop leaders get tired, because being able to impact only people you can touch personally is limiting. In contrast, leaders who develop leaders impact people far beyond their personal reach. Every time you develop leaders and help them increase their leadership ability, you make them capable of influencing an even greater number of people. Why impact small numbers of people when you can impact large numbers of people and multiply success for everyone?
Liberty National’s Leadership Academy is a perfect example of Maxwell’s Law of Explosive Growth. Liberty National leaders teach you how to become a leader yourself. When you return to your Agency, you help create other leaders … who create other leaders to set explosive growth in motion!
