Who is John Maxwell? or How many of his books have you read already? He is my number one mentor in terms of leadership even through reading his books. First time I saw & listened to John Maxwell in person was when he came to the Philippines held at the Araneta Coliseum years ago; it's featured "The John Maxwell Leadership Summit." I remember the Araneta Coliseum compacted with multitude of people from all walks of life or leaders from around the beautiful islands of Philippines. His leadership teachings is for CEO, executives, managers, church leaders, business leaders, administrators, presidents and whoever interested even without a mundane title (why not?).
