A few months ago I wrote a blog on what a John Maxwell Certified Coach is. You can read it here What is a John Maxwell Team Member ?
It has now been a year since I became a Certified John Maxwell Coach, Speaker and Trainer. A lot has changed in the past 6 months. My wife and I have moved to Florida, where we have always dreamed of living and my Consulting Business is rapidly growing. As the saying goes, “It hasn’t been easy, but it has been worth it.”
When I left the corporate world after 24 years to pursue my dream of helping others as a Sales Consultant, little did I know that my business would be so much more than just Sales Training and Consulting. Today my days consist of not only Sales Training Seminars but also Leadership Training Seminars and both Executive Coaching as well as Personal Coaching. I have many clients that I not only train but also Coach and Mentor. My clients include, Presidents, Executive Vice Presidents and Owners of successful companies as well as Sales Managers. Sales People and Corporate Leaders and Managers. I am working with several companies as a “Sales Manager Consultant” providing guidance to the Sales Team during their search for a new Sales Manager. I have developed a unique Sales Simulator Formula Training that is personalized for each client and involves developing a complete Sales Process from beginning to end.
My Training as a John Maxwell Coach has changed the way I train. The Coaching Training I have received from Christian Simpson and the speaking training I have received from Roddy Galbraith in the JMT Program has helped me develop my speaking, coaching and consulting skills to a level I never imagined. Instead of the old style of the lecture type training, I now use my Coaching Skills of asking many questions to get the participants involved in the learning process by sharing their experiences and getting them to think through the processes.The Leadership training from Paul Martinelli and Scott Fay has led me to become a Speaker and Trainer on Leadership as well as a Sales Trainer. The business building skills I have learned from Melissa West has helped in growing my business and the Sales Training of Ed Decosta has added new ways of thinking about my Sales Training. The John Maxwell Certification Training never ends. The curriculum continues to grow and the multiple weekly Certification Calls continue to challenge me as a Certified Team Member.
The learning and growing doesn’t end once you become a Certified John Maxwell Team Member. When I originally invested in the program I thought I would become Certified and that would be the end of the program but it is so much more. The International group of John Maxwell Certified Coaches has become family and I speak to many on a regular basis on the phone or through texts. We are connected by the common mission to add value to others through what we do.
John Maxwell has built a team of coaches, speakers and trainers who carry on his mission of developing Leaders around the world. John says, “Leadership is influence, nothing more and nothing less.” Being a John Maxwell Certified Coach has influenced me far beyond what I ever imagined.
I regularly speak to others who are considering becoming a John Maxwell Certified Team Member and I tell each of them the same thing. “Becoming a John Maxwell Certified Team Member will not guarantee overnight success as a Speaker, Coach and Trainer but it will equip you with the skill set to become a Professional Speaker, Coach and Trainer. It is then up to each of us to build a business around that foundation.” I am thankful I decided to invest in the John Maxwell Program as I continue to grow both personally and professionally through the training and mentoring of John Maxwell and the JMT Faculty.
