Are You Ready to Raise Your Leadership Level?
Leadership is the difference maker and the deal breaker. It’s how we grow organisations. It’s how we impact lives. But, as you also know, leadership cannot be an idea we simply talk about; leadership is the action we must live out.
21 Irrefutable Laws of Leadership – Your Invitation to Join a Mastermind Group…
Are there tried and true principles that are certain to help a leader develop and grow? John Maxwell says the answer is yes.
Maxwell has been passionate about leadership development for over fifty years, and now, through our specially devised Mastermind groups, we are able to access and learn everything he has gleaned about what it takes to reach our leadership potential.
Through John Maxwell’s leadership mastermind groups we can learn…
1. The Law of the Lid: Leadership ability determines a person’s level of effectiveness
2. The Law of Influence: The true measure of leadeship is influence – nothing more, nothing less
4. The Law of Navigation: Anyone can steer a ship but it takes a leader to chart the course
5. The Law of Addition: Leaders add value to other by serving other
11. The Law of the inner circle: A leader’s potential is determinded by those closest to him
13. The Law of the Picture: People do what people see
20. The Law of Explosive Growth: To add growth, lead followers – to multiple growth, lead leaders
…and 14 more essential leadership laws…
John C Maxwell has been ranked at the number 1 leadership worldwide expert, author and teacher for the past few years now and we are delighted to say that we have partnered with John’s Team to deliver his training here in the UK and Europe.
John says “Leadership is the difference maker and the deal breaker. It’s how we grow organizations. It’s how we impact lives. But, as you also know, leadership cannot be an idea we simply talk about; leadership is the action we must live out.”
We will be using this training to lift the lid on the potential of the teams and businesses we already work with as well as developing Mastermind courses and events to raise the level of growth in your teams too.
We’ll study and learn to apply the lessons from some of John Maxwell’s most successful and effective books and philosopies; starting with The 21 Irrefutable Laws of Leadership and then continuing with studies on John’s teaching, such as; How to Become a Person of Influence, Many Communicate – Few Connect and so forth.
As our interest here at Media Modo has always been in accelerating growth and startups, we’ll be focusing our Mastermind courses on leaders who are leading these exciting companies.
If you are a fast growth business and want to maintain or accelerate your growth, or a successful startup that has started to generate revenue but are looking around to how to grow further, faster; then please get in touch.
FitNW.com is a new launch which aims to help people connect with a local personal trainers to reach their fitness goals, lose weight and be healthy.
The growing interest in fitness and health is filtering into the need and desire to live longer – or at least, to be healthier for longer.
More people are recognising that with the need to work for more years – as the pension age receds, the need to remain fit and healthy in our later years is becoming more and more important.
Hence, people are turning to advice and help outside of traditional medical services to help them get fit and stay fit.
A key area we have identified is the value of finding a personal trainer to help achieve the early goals and to establish a healthy lifestyle.
However, as people search for fitness and trainer advice locally, we’ve ensured that our focus remains highly local with searches targetting on personal trainers in Chester, in Manchester, Liverpool and so forth.
Health and health related issues – such as sports and fitness – are a key growth business area.
In fact, recent reports show what business angels are prioritising investment into health related business, devices and services.
With that in mind, we have been supporting the growth of health communities – from the issue of itching skin to a promotional event called My Detox Day – with the aim of helping use charity sponsorship to commit to both a detox diet and a modest level of fitness; and Get Fit NW – a site aimed at helping people find local personal trainers and support for their fitness and weight management goals.
The really interesting point about health, from an investment or business building perspective, is that real interest (and willingness to spend) begins when people reach 40 or so years old.
Hence, western markets – and the English speaking / internet enabled world is a pretty close fit – is growing old rapidly and more and more people are past 40 years old and either thinking about health and fitness or actively engaged in maintaining better health and fitness levels.
Hence, as a growth market, Media Modo have decided to support and build health and fitness related online communities.
You’ve identified key missing attributes in your team and you’ve found the right people to join. Even better.
Now, what do you offer them?
If you can’t offer a full salary, then you’ll be offer some equity (or in some cases, no salary – just equity!).
How do you..
- know how much to offer – so that they are motivated
- know when to offer – when they have delivered or proven themselves or do you use claw backs
- decide what you expect for the equity
- build a model to release the equity back if they haven’t delivered.
…and do all this without upset and without distracting you from the day to day business?
It is not easy – and that is why we have built the Equity Team Tool – it provides the innovation or startup leaders a simple rational model to explain how and why equity is being shared and, critically, to show who the original (but now diluted) stakes are actually worth more.
If you would like us to set up the Equity Team Tool model for your startup or innovation team, please get in touch…
