The book The 21 Irrefutable Laws of Leadership by John Maxwell continues to be an excellent resource and tool for business and community leaders to assess their performance.

Law #1, “The Law of the Lid” states the harsh and oftentimes eye-opening reality that your organization can only rise as high as your level of leadership. If you’re a 7, your organization will plateau there as well.

When a leader is a lid, it is not only frustrating but typically highlights the weaker skills of the leader. Everyone in the organization will struggle and be held back. This is why it is CRITICAL leaders are constantly working to assess their leadership, identify their next level and develop their skills. It is an ongoing process, as you strengthen one area, a new area will reveal itself. 

Which of the 21 Laws has challenged you and your organization?

We’ll hear insight from 21 area business leaders and candid Q/A on each of the 21 Laws – JOIN US!

$100 per person after December 15, 2019 | 400 tickets available | tickets include lunch + 4-6pm Executive Social

Thank you for checking in!

Our team is busy preparing for January’s Executive Expo and the 3rd annual is lining up to be the most in-depth and impactful yet!

This year’s Expo is themed on one the best-selling leadership books of all-time, The 21 Irrefutable Laws of Leadership by John C. Maxwell.

We have 21 area business leaders lined up to share their experience with each law in brief, 10-minute TED-style presentations. Each hour will wrap-up with Certified John Maxwell Trainer and our emcee Doug Peters doing an audience Q/A.

This year’s Expo starts and ends a little earlier than previous Expo’s, with the presentations concluding by 4:00 and the Executive Social done by 6:00.

We’re looking forward to another powerful, but fun event and look forward to seeing you there!
