#1 New York Times bestselling author John C. Maxwell believes that any setback, whether professional or personal, can be turned into a step forward when you possess the right tools to turn a loss into a gain. Drawing on nearly fifty years of leadership experience, Dr. Maxwell provides a roadmap for winning by examining the eleven elements that constitute the DNA of learners who succeed in the face of problems, failure, and losses.
1. Humility – The Spirit of Learning 2. Reality – The Foundation of Learning 3. Responsibility – The First Step of Learning 4. Improvement – The Focus of Learning 5. Hope – The Motivation of Learning 6. Teachability – The Pathway of Learning 7. Adversity – The Catalyst of Learning 8. Problems – The Opportunities of Learning
9. Bad Experiences – The Perspective for Learning
10. Change – The Price of Learning 11. Maturity – The Value of Learning
Learning is not easy during down times, it takes discipline to do the right thing when something goes wrong. As John Maxwell often points out–experience isn’t the best teacher; evaluated experience is.
