Wise Leadership Plan To Consider And Follow

Last Update: March 06, 2018

John Maxwell is a best-selling author, coach and speaker.

He is renowned for his leadership coaching.

The concept that I read from him is a wise leadership plan to consider and follow.

Play To Your Strengths

To achieve all round great success in our lives we need to focus on our strengths.

John Maxwell uses King Solomon who died in 931 BC.as an example and he is known as one of the wisest kings.

King Solomon was sought after, people wanted to learn from him, rub shoulders with him and gain influence that he had attained.


The principle that John Maxwell introduces is basic. He says our time should be split as follows:-

  • Give 70% of your time to your areas of strength
  • Give 25% of your time to areas you want to improve
  • Give 5% of your time to the areas of your weakness

Are you primarily focusing on your areas of strength?

What is your opinion on the 70:25:5 principal?

That is wisely use the capital of life - sensible but often swayed by political correctness, i.e., sweet talk and sympathy.

Much appreciated,

Hi Tania,
You are completely right in your opinion of 75:25:5 principle.There is no need one wasting time in what he knows he will not do well. I can quickly add that sometimes peserviearance and consistency can also bring perfection that's my opinion.
