Becoming a Person of Influence Mastermind
Talk is Cheap. Make Your Words and Actions Matter
Are you ready to increase your leadership potential? No matter your leadership role, be it a parent, teacher, pastor, or business executive, you are a person of influence. Increasing your influence equals increasing your leadership.
On Friday, December 3rd at 8:00 am EST, I am officially launching my Becoming a Person of Influence Mastermind where I will share practical knowledge to gain a better understanding of what it means to be an influencer and how to increase your influence on others.
Have you ever wondered what separates an average leader from a great one? The answer is influence, but influence doesn’t come to us instantaneously. It grows in stages.
John C. Maxwell, an internationally recognized leadership expert, speaker, coach, and author who has sold over 19 million books, says, "Connection is a very important part of the process of mentoring others. And it’s absolutely critical if you want to influence people in a positive way. When you navigate for others, you come alongside them and travel their road for a while, while helping them handle some of the obstacles and difficulty in their lives. But when you connect with them, you are asking them to come alongside you and travel your road for your and their mutual benefit."
If you connect with other people, you are an influencer. A person of influence empowers people. The act of empowering others changes lives, and it’s a win-win situation for you AND the people you empower.

What You Can Expect From This Mastermind!
We’ll mastermind on Becoming a Person of Influence by John Maxwell. In this 5 week, in-depth process, you’ll join forces with a unique group of hand-selected, like-minded individuals focused on experiencing positive results in every area of their lives. Having the support and ideas of other ambitious people will allow you to gain a new perspective on how you can add value to others by becoming a person of influence.
To get the most from our Mastermind, you'll need to purchase and read Becoming a Person of Influence. I promise you'll use this book as a reference guide in the future. You can likely pick it up at your local bookstore, order through Amazon, or even check it out at your local library.
In addition, we will meet at the same time each week (Friday at 8:00 am EST) on a conference line to review the material for that week and to cover what you learned in the chapters from the book that were assigned. These meetings bring to life all of the ideas that are circulating in your mind and help lay a foundation for your success.
Do you know the most valuable gift a leader can give? Being a good example! As a leader, the first person you need to lead is you. Your standards of excellence should be higher for yourself than those you set for others. To remain a credible leader, you must always work first, hardest, and longest on changing yourself.
The value of understanding how to motivate and influence others is priceless. If you appreciate those you lead and want to help them develop and advance along with you, don’t miss this Mastermind!
