A memory popped up in my Facebook newsfeed this morning – it has been 2 years since I traveled to Haiti with a small team to do construction work and children’s programs in the countryside. It was the first time in a long time that I had gone on such a trip, and it reminded me of what I loved, and what I didn’t love, about being in another country.
About 3 years ago, I made the decision to join the John Maxwell Team. The clincher for me in this decision was knowing that John Maxwell had gone to Guatemala with a number of the team members to do transformational leadership training.
Their work impacted a nation, and I wanted to do that too!
Very soon, I will have that same opportunity, to go to the nation of Costa Rica with John Maxwell and other team members. I can’t wait! I know I was born for this.
Have you ever experienced that certainty before? If you have, you can never be satisfied doing something else, no matter how noble. That is largely how I’ve felt these past two years – dissatisfied. I am hungry to live out my purpose – to train and challenge others into reaching their potential, not only in learning English but in learning how to build and maintain strong relationships that can move them forward towards success, however they choose to define it.
If you’ve ever wondered what it is that I do, what I’m so passionate about, now is your chance to experience it firsthand! In just a couple weeks, I will delivering a live 6-week online course based on John Maxwell’s book Everyone Communicates, Few Connect.
Of all John’s books that I’ve read, this one is special to me. The first time I read it, several years ago, my first thought was, “This is my teaching style; this is how I manage my international classes!” By teaching this course, I will be sharing with you the lessons I’ve learned through 20 years in the classroom, working with students aged 5 to 65, teaching grammar and vocabulary, presentations and negotiations.
Normally, I charge $150 for this course, but because I am so grieved by the disconnection I am seeing in the world around me, for this time only, I am offering the course for free. I long to help people find ways to bridge the differences that are threatening to tear this nation apart.
