Merrimack College and the Eagle Tribune on Oct. 31 cohosted a lecture by John C. Maxwell, a best-selling Christian author, professional speaker, and pastor whose works focus primarily on leadership. He has written many books over the years, such as “The Five Levels of Leadership” and, most recent “The 15 Invaluable Laws Of Growth.”
Maxwell came to the college to speak on the topic of leadership. Merrimack live-tweeted the event, quoting Maxwell as saying, “The greatest motivation for growth is to see yourself getting better.” Those who missed Maxwell’s lecture and want to learn more about his ideas on leadership can follow his blog at johnmaxwellonleadership.com.
There he writes: “I am a big fan of leadership. I love to learn about it. I love to grow in it. And I love to help others develop as leaders.” You can also pick up any of his books in stores around the country. This was the first of four lectures in the Speaker Series that Merrimack and the Eagle Tribune are cosponsoring. Sir Ken Robinson, a speaker, author and advisor to governments on religion, will be the next speaker, on Jan. 28.
