How Successful People Win

John C. Maxwell
Authors:
John C. Maxwell

No one wins at everything they try. But any setback, whether professional or personal, can become a step forward with the right tools and mindset to turn loss into a gain. Drawing on nearly 50 years of leadership experience, Maxwell provides a roadmap for winning by examining the eleven elements that constitute the "DNA" of people who succeed in the face of problems, failure, and losses. Learning is not easy during down times. It takes discipline to do the right thing when something goes wrong. As John Maxwell often points out, experience itself isn't the best teacher; evaluating, understanding, and growing from your experience is. By examining how that process works, you can learn how to take risks and tackle challenges with a successful person's outlook. Derived from material previously published in Sometimes You Win-Sometimes You Learn.

Ethics 101

John C. Maxwell

John C. Maxwell

How does a person judge what is ethical? You know Enron's leaders were in the wrong but is it always easy to see where the line is in your life? What is the standard? Can it work in ALL situations?John C Maxwell thinks it can. When the bestselling author, successful businessman and former pastor was asked his thoughts on business ethics his response was 'there's no such thing - only ethics!'. Maxwell asserts that there's an ethical standard for all behaviour and you might be surprised what it's based on. Did you know that a variation of the Golden Rule exists in Every major religion?In ETHICS 101, Maxwell shows how people can live with integrity by using the Golden Rule as their standard - regardless of religion, culture or circumstances. Along the way he delves into the desires of the human heart, reveals the five most common causes that get people off track ethically and teaches how to develop the Midas touch when it comes to integrity.
