coaches, volunteers and leaders are converging on Asunción, Paraguay at the invitation of President Horacio Cartes. The special delegation will conduct a national not-for-profit leadership education project known as Transformación Paraguay, under the guidance and development of in-country leaders, Tim and Gabby Teasdale.
Over 260 people are converging in Paraguay, January 29 through February 5, to deliver the proven “Maxwell Round Table Method” to thousands of participants. The powerful Maxwell Round Table Method begins by equipping individuals in a structured process, then radiates from individual to individual for a massive, intentional, viral leadership development effect.
Over the course of five rigorous days, the specially trained delegation will meet with top government, military, education, business, faith and community leaders with one goal in mind: hand over proven tools to the leaders of Paraguay in a structured process for their further leadership development through the power of the values-based Maxwell Round Table Method.
“This is Operation Leadership Liftoff - for Paraguay,” John Maxwell said. “Literally, hundreds of people from all over the world are paying their own way to serve, add value and make a difference in Paraguay. This is how transformation happens - when one person cares enough to take action - when hundreds care enough to take action. The weight of the vision for Paraguay weighs heavily on me, because I know what’s at stake. If the vision doesn’t have weight, it doesn't carry with it the conviction and the authority it needs. The vision must be felt in the heart, not just seen with the eyes. We are fighting for the transformation of lives for the people of Paraguay,” Maxwell added.
Maxwell has been invited to deliver the Maxwell Round Table Method by the leaders of 22 nations. He and a special delegation delivered the method in Guatemala - visits to more countries are in the works.
The Maxwell Round Table Method is straightforward - using a set of leadership values pre-selected by Paraguayans, specially trained John Maxwell Team Members will each host a series of 15 values based round table sessions, totaling nearly 4,000 sessions in all, structured around Maxwell’s newest thinking on Intentional Living. Each member of the round table reflects on how well they embody a particular value (for instance, listening), share briefly, and then make a positive statement about how they will improve that skill in the coming week.
After discussing specific leadership values and how to personally improve upon each, table participants are asked to proactively practice the growth method for one week, then reach out to five members of their community and teach them the same process. Using the Maxwell Round Table Method, it’s estimated 700,000 Paraguayans (10% of the population) will be reached. This process is expected to create a cultural paradigm shift from the top down - and table to table, participant to participant.
One-third of the Paraguayan population lives beneath the poverty line. Leadership in the country has asked for help in training more leaders with a main goal of more responsibility. By equipping leaders through the Maxwell Round Table Method with values-based content for them to teach to others, a revolution of transformational leadership can fast-track a country and help it move forward with confidence.
