Transformation begins with me. It begins with you.
“Knowledge alone doesn’t bring growth; seeing others develop brings growth.” When John Maxwell said this today while speaking to a group of educators in Sao Paulo, Brazil, it reminded me of how important transformation tables are.
Let me explain. During the time that the Maxwell Organization has been teaching iLead/Transformation Tables in countries around the world, they have proven the following stats, which I find remarkable.
After one year's of values teaching, they have 17% less disciplinary problems in schools with the kids that have gone through the program. But knowledge alone doesn’t bring the growth - seeing others develop brings the growth. When kids have the knowledge, and they see it demonstrated, their growth impact goes up to 20%. Better yet, when they have the knowledge (learn the values), see it demonstrated, AND they practice it, their growth impact (potential) goes up to 60%. Wouldn’t we all want to see the growth and potential in our lives go up 60%?
Get this. It gets better. When they combine knowledge (learning), with demonstration, practice AND sharing (talking about what they are seeing, learning and practicing), the growth impact goes to 90%! Yes, 90%! This is the impact that the iLead program and Transformation Tables are having around the world. The best news is this just isn’t for kids/students. It’s for all of us!
We can change our world. We can create a transformation in our values, actions and overall world. The fact is: IT BEGINS WITH ME. IT BEGINS WITH YOU.
IT IS SIMPLE - You just have to get into a Transformation Table and experience the impact. I have had people say, “I don’t want this to end,” and “what’s next, I want to keep learning and growing.”
Transformation is FREE. John wants everyone to be able to take part. Together, we can rebuild our world through values and actions. And, if you don’t think you need transformation, be the person that joins a table to be the demonstrator of good values and actions. Whatever you do, join a table today. Start the multiplication effect that we are seeing happen throughout the world.
If you are interested in joining a table, facilitating a table or just learning more, I want to help. Go to changinglivesfound.org/transformation to learn more, sign up for a table or inquire with me about what in the world this all means!
