“The true measure of leadership is influence – Nothing more, nothing less.” – John C. Maxwell

★ What is leadership in your opinion? You are the owner of your business. You manage your company. You hold the position of a department head and have a few team members. You manage a small team in your start-up project. You are the head of your family at home. But have you maximized your leadership ability?

Everything rises and falls on leadership, but unfortunately, many people don’t know what leadership really is, why we need to grow our leadership ability, and how we can bring our organization to a new height through our leadership. The result is, the team can’t work well with one another, sales doesn’t increase, and employees don’t have motivation to work.

★ The ability to lead yourself and lead others is the key to propel yourself to new heights in your career and your life. Stephen Khor will help you do just that in a program, Maximizing Your Leadership Effectiveness. He is a Coach, Teacher, and Speaker of John Maxwell Team, founded by John C. Maxwell, World’s No. 1 Leadership Guru. He is also one of the 7 excellent members of Corporate Global Family of John Maxwell Team.
