Do people listen to you because they have to? Or do they listen because they want to? Much of the time, the answer to this question is a reflection of your level of influence. In this new series on what John Maxwell calls “moral authority,” John dives into five levels of influence that determine if and why those you lead are willing to listen to your guidance and leadership. This series will show you how to gain influence with your team based on the person you are, not the position you hold. Your hosts Mark Cole and Jason Brooks discuss what this looks like within the John Maxwell Enterprise, while Mark reflects on how these principles gained him the influence to become John Maxwell’s CEO. Our BONUS resource for this series is the Moral Authority Worksheet, which includes fill-in-the-blank notes from John’s teaching.
