"My first introduction to John Maxwell was reading the book The 21 Most Powerful Minutes in a Leader's Day. I began to read the book daily and began to apply the principles as a head coach and as a leader. It was a timely book for me in a new position as head coach. I needed some good sound leadership principles, and found that through the Maximum Impact Simulcast and John Maxwell. John has helped me quite a bit in learning how to lead. Leadership is a growing thing. You can't just think I have it mastered, because you never really do."

-- Mark Richt, Head Football Coach, University of Georgia

"There is more to leadership than just being out in front or charisma. Leadership is built over time. Leaders are made not born. Here you see the values that go into leadership and the importance of building a strong team. People will take away the understanding that there is more than just getting the job done. The basis of trust is individual values, and also the basis of a team. The values being taught are crucial, as they are the backbone to teamwork and trust."

-- General William Lennox, Former Commandant, West Point Military Academy

"John Maxwell is a true leader of leaders with plenty to teach us. ...His teaching style is engaging and accessible and meaningful, even entertaining. Without fail, his lessons always include a great mix of honesty, compassion, challenge, wisdom and humor."
