About this workshop

Based on John C. Maxwell’s No. 1 international bestseller, The 21 Irrefutable Laws of Leadership, The John Maxwell Company presents Living the Laws of Leadership- a TWO-DAY Interactive Experience designed to provide you with the practical tools you need to address leadership challenges you encounter each and every day.

The Problem: Sustainability and expansion are necessary for survival in today’s marketplace. As companies chart the course for growth, forecasts are presented, vision is cast, expectations set and execution begins.
