USI John Maxwell Leadership Boot Camp

You don’t need a title to be a leader. The USI John Maxwell Leadership Boot Camp teaches leading by influence. And when you get that title, leading others will be easier and more effective. The Maxwell program is successfully used by some of the world’s largest corporations, and the USI Romain College of Business is the only business school offering this Maxwell Leadership Development program, customized exclusively for college students.

The program is available to students majoring or minoring in business and MBA students. Participants use books and digital downloads to generate group discussions, and have access to coaching sessions with a former CEO/executive coach. The series culminates in a final project, suitable for a professional portfolio, which demonstrates a thorough grasp and application of skills. Faculty sponsor: Dr. Jason Fertig.

Success of the Maxwell Program

Students overwhelmingly rate their experience in the Maxwell program as successful:

“I really liked the phone calls, the representative from Maxwell was very sincere and was willing to provide us will his personal experiences to provide insight into what to expect out in the ‘real world of business’.”

“The program has helped me so much in my recent graduation and my transition into a full time job. I have learned how to influence people that I work with even if they have more experience than me.”
