Local Leaders Gather for Live2Lead

“As a leader, the first person I need to lead is me. The first person that I should try to change is me.” -John Maxwell

On Tuesday, local leaders gathered (socially distanced) to attend Live2Lead at the Bridge View Center. The annual event, organized by the John Maxwell Company, consists of a series of business leaders sharing their personal leadership stories and best practices. Attendees of this year’s event heard from three inspiriting leaders:

-John Maxwell, #1 New York Times Best selling author, #1 leadership expert by Business Insider and Inc. Magazine

-Kat Cole, COO of FOCUS Brands North America

-Craig Groeschel, Life.Church Co-Founder, New York Times best selling author

Hollie Tometich, Executive Director of the Ottumwa Leadership Academy said “This event has allowed us to bring nationally-known thought leaders to Ottumwa virtually for the past 5 years.  Many of us don’t get the opportunity to go to the live event – let alone with coworkers and colleagues.  It’s been a great way to have access to such important messages and then discuss with the local leaders in the room what aspects are most impactful and things we can start implementing right away.”
