How To Be An Inspirational & Motivating Leader

Interview With David S. Hoyt: Founder of The Principle Group &
Former President of The John Maxwell Company  

David is a strategic advisor, communicator, leader and guide. He's had the privilege of riding shotgun with John Maxwell for 19 years serving as an inner circle member, running a significant portion of John's business interests and most recently served as President of the John Maxwell Company.

Today David advises leaders on growing their organizations as well as guiding them to live lives of purpose, courage, and intentionality. He does this by advising & guiding people through his LifePlan Process.

We had an incredible conversation about how someone can become a leader, what makes a great leader, the importance of reflection and self-discovery, and even a bit about college football.

If you've ever wanted to become a leader in your personal life, in your career, and to yourself you will truly enjoy this interview. We discuss the importance of "managing up" if you're an employee, and if you're already the leader, how you can inspire & motivate your team through honesty and authenticity.

David is a wealth of knowledge and expertise, shared incredible wisdom and recommended quite a few books to add to the reading list. We all have a unique purpose and calling in the world and David's mission is to help motivated men and women move forward living a fulfilled and satisfying life.

Great leaders walk the talk. They're authentic, the real deal. Humility is a big part of it. It's not 'Hey, I have all the answers, and I'm large and in charge,' it's being humble enough to admit weaknesses, humble enough to admit defeats when they happen, and to be in touch with your story both the ups and downs.

Founder, The Principle Group
