COLUMBUS, Ohio--(BUSINESS WIRE)--LegalShield, one of North America’s leading providers of affordable legal plans and the IDShield identity theft solution for individuals, families and small businesses, concluded its 2017 Leaders @ All Levels Convention at the Greater Columbus Convention Center this past weekend. This year’s three-day event began on September 7 and brought together LegalShield’s experienced, new and aspiring Independent Sales Associates from all 50 states and Canada. The sold-out event drew more than 4,000 attendees.
Associates had the opportunity to hear from motivating speakers who shared their expertise in owning and running a business, and received specialized professional development training to unlock their leadership potential.
The lineup of speakers included headliner John C. Maxwell, an internationally renowned leadership expert, coach and author who has sold over 26 million books. Dr. Maxwell founded EQUIP and the John Maxwell Company, organizations that have trained millions of leaders in 153 countries. He has written more than 100 books that have been translated into 50 languages. He was named the number one leadership expert in the world by Inc. magazine in 2014. Maxwell recently released his newest book, “No Limits: Blow the CAP Off Your Capacity.”
“You have to feel good about being part of a company who does so much good for so many people,” Maxwell commented. “I really like your theme: Leaders at All Levels. You showed up. That makes you a leader already. There is always room to grow and your best can always get better. Welcome!”
“John has helped countless people around the world tap into their passion and unlock their true leadership potential to build a successful career,” said Jeff Bell, CEO of LegalShield. “He is the true embodiment of selflessness, determination and perseverance. We were honored to have had him deliver a keynote address at our convention that helps our Associates grow their own leadership skills.”
“Options give opportunities,” said Maxwell in closing. “The older you become the less certainty you have in life. Life will knock the answers out of you. So now at 70, I have maybe only had a dozen certainties in life. But let me tell you a certainty that I have for sure: there’s more, more and there’s more before. I think the best is yet to be. You have a phenomenal organization. Just like you all say, ‘the best is yet to come!’”
