Let me tell you about our recast of LIVE2LEAD!
Growing up as a normal, young, somewhat introverted person, he was regularly thrust into leadership roles starting in his early teenage years with his very first job. One day in college, while reading about the Marine Corps' Officer programs, he was struck by General John Lejeune’s comment about the role of the officer, “The relation between officers and enlisted men should in no sense be that of superior and inferior nor that of master and servant, but rather that of teacher and scholar.”
And so, a Marine officer was born who recognized that his role was that of a servant leader, helping to add value to those around him. For 25 years, Bill served, grew professionally and personally through the officer ranks, before retiring as a Colonel and heading to his civilian career as a marketing and communications consultant and defense contractor. Reflecting on his experiences while reading one of Dr. John Maxwell’s books years ago, he easily understood Dr. Maxwell’s central themes -- “Everything rises and falls on leadership” and “Leadership is about adding value to people.”
Years later, he was fortunate to hear John speak in person and found the way to get involved with his organization to further develop his personal leadership acumen and to continue helping others develop themselves.
Everyone wants to succeed in life, to thrive, to fly, be it in personal or professional endeavors. Bill recognized that to do so, personal development must be a continuous journey. Bill committed to this journey years ago and joining Maxwell Leadership was but one way he demonstrated this commitment. Many recognize the need for support to develop themselves and this is where Bill can provide that support.
Bill’s personal experiences, professional development, and Maxwell Leadership certifications can provide that support to help others achieve their life goals – leading other eagles to fly higher to achieve new heights in their personal and professional lives.
Leading Eagles LLC is a professional services company, led by William Hughes, that provides Maxwell Leadership certified coaching, training, and speaker support to individuals and organizations.
