John Maxwell quote in Overcoming 1st Timer Syndrome

One of the leadership experts who influenced me the most is John C. Maxwell. I read his books, listened to many of his interviews, and still watch his videos on a regular basis.

Here is an excerpt from page 105 of Overcoming 1st Timer Syndrome, Amazon’s #1 Hot New Release since its release date on August 26th, where I shared one of the lessons I learned from him: “I remember working on my listening, starting at level 1 and moving to level 2, and then to level 3. One method I used, which I copied from leadership guru John C. Maxwell, was when I went out to meet people, I would write on the top right corner of my notebook the capital letter ‘L’, to remind me to listen. I remember the struggle I had to grow from level 1 to level 2. When working on level 3 listening, I remember paying attention to my own and to other’s emotions and non-verbal body language. I still work on this last stage of listening, but I’ve come a long way.”

Sun Tzu quote in Overcoming 1st Timer Syndrome

The 1st Timer Syndrome affected, and may still be affecting most of us, whether we’re emerging or seasoned leaders. The difference is the degree to which it impacts us and how long it takes us to overcome it whenever we are placed into a new leadership role.

The 1st antidote to lessen the impact and shorten the lifespan of the syndrome is to ‘Know Your Place’, Chapter 1. This chapter begins by quoting one of the most recognized military strategists, Sun Tzu, who said, “If you know the enemy and know yourself, you need not fear the results of a hundred battles.”

One can quickly deal with visible and/or hidden fear as a result of the syndrome by knowing one’s new place of leadership very well, and if possible ahead of stepping into the new role. In this chapter, I shared the most important knowledge you need, the questions to ask, and where to get the answers.

Mark Levin’s Endorsement

Thank you very much, Mark Levin, for offering great feedback and endorsing my book! Mark was elected President of the National Speakers Association (NSA) DC Chapter, where I’ve been a member since 2014, at a very difficult time. The pandemic did hit all industries, but the speaking industry was one of the hardest knocked. Because of his outstanding leadership, the Chapter not only survived during that tough time but also thrived given the multitudes of challenges he and his leadership team faced. He specializes in membership development, volunteer leadership training, and staff development for associations and non-profit organizations around the world.

Here is what Mark said about the book: “This book gets right to the source of what emerging leaders need to know and understand about leadership, and helps guide them to the next level of leadership success. It also establishes Dr. AZ as a true thought leader on this critical subject.”
