“Leadership is influence. Nothing more, nothing less.”– John Maxwell

Malcolm lives his purpose in life through speaking, coaching and teaching young leaders and adult leaders. And his one word is… INSPIRE. “Live inspired to inspire.” This is what drives him to do what he does, to live his purpose in life. “Helping others to reach their purpose in life, vision and goals. Bridging the gap between someone’s setbacks to comebacks, their breakdowns to breakthrough, them feeling expired to feeling inspired. When someone allows me these privileges, I am rewarded with personal fulfillment.” As to why he stands out, Malcolm provides a coachee’s testimony.
“Malcolm as a coach “ta hopi great”!
He provides structure to my thoughts and he helps me focus on the things I have to do to achieve success. He lets me think for myself and he has the ability to see my obstacles very quickly. During a coaching session with Malcolm I get a breakthrough I need and I am inspired to take action to achieve my goal!” – Sayen Jacobs, founder and owner of Happy Tails Dog Grooming & Care.

Malcolm explains that shifting your way of thinking opens up a new realm of possibilities that can lead you to success in any area of your life. The enhancement services offered through, among other things, speaking engagements, group or individual coaching sessions, Masterminding sessions and the John Maxwell Team Leadership Game. The concept of the Mastermind Group is believed to be formally introduced by Napoleon Hill in the early 1900’s and is used today by John Maxwell Team members as well.

Masterminding creates a synergy within the group and everyone grows through participation, including the facilitator!
