Maximum Impact - Intro, Sanborn

I attended a seminar last Friday with several colleagues at New Life Assembly in Kearney. It was a simulcast event by MaximumImpact. This year was host to several great inspirational/leadership speakers including Mark Sanborn, John Maxwell, Tim Sanders, Bill Strickland, Terry Bradshaw, Hermon Boone, Jackie Freiberg, Malcom Gladwell and Bernie Marcus. I would like to write about each speaker and highlight my notes from them. I'll start today with Mark Sanborn.

Mark Sanborn - Author of "You Don't Need a Title to be a Leader"
Notable Quotes: "Positively M.A.D. - Making A Difference"
Ask great things from 1) yourself 2) others.
Do things you're good at - do them with those you enjoy being with.
Focus on what you can do - not what you can't.
Only you control 1) How hard you work, 2) How much you learn, 3) How close you get to your customer/colleagues, 4) How creative you do business.
Take responsibility over action - Own the Results!
Lead not out of obligation but because of the opportunity - leading cause of burnout.
Have no regrets - regrets come in the form of saying "I wish I would have" NOT "I wish I wouldn't have."
