John’s Leadership Rules


I keep a list in my office to remind me of leadership traits which I want to remember and practice. I have gotten these from some of my favorite leadership people including John Maxwell and Andy Stanley.   There are as follows:

  1. Leaders become insulated and Isolated…AND THEY LIKE IT
  2. Resist the urge to lead every meeting you attend.
  3. A good leader wants the best thinkers and most strategic people around the table with them.
  4. What and who you listen to will determine what you do.
  5. Leaders never outgrow the need to change.
  6. Don’t buy into the notion that mistakes can be avoided, THEY CAN’T.
  7. It doesn’t matter how long or how hard you’ve worked if it doesn’t accomplish what needs to be done.
  8. Coming together is a beginning and staying together is progress but only when teams sweat together do they find SUCCESS.
  9. Teamwork is at the heart of GREAT achievement.
  10. BECOME PRE-OCCUPIED WITH WHO YOU HAVEN’T REACHED AS OPPOSED TO THOSE YOU WANT TO KEEP.
