WINKLER - 

A world wide leadership simulcast event is coming to Winkler and Al Ruttan of the John Maxwell Group is encouraging people to attend.
Called Live2Lead, it will be presented at the P.W. Enns Centennial Concert Hall, in Winkler on October 6, 2017. It will be hosted by Dynamic Leadership with Al Ruttan.
“Everyone is a leader and leads at least one person - themselves,” Ruttan said. “In order to grow yourself, you need to know yourself - that growth has to be intentional.”
He added this event will help people with that journey.
“If you are a leader or aspiring leader, you can only grow your team or business to the level that you are at - if you want to grow it larger, you need to grow yourself,” he explained. “So I believe that everyone would benefit in some way from this event.
Speakers include John C. Maxwell, leadership expert, bestselling author and coach. John C. Maxwell is a #1 New York Times bestselling author, coach and speaker, and was identified as the #1 leader in business by the AMA and the world’s most influential leadership expert by Inc. in 2014.
Ruttan is a Maxwell Team executive director and says he appreciates Maxwell’s philosophy on leadership.
“He strives to add value to others in everything he does,” he said. I have grown so much as a leader since joining the team, and I’ve also discovered that I have a long way to go.”
Ruttan said at 70-years-old, Maxwell still reads, studies, writes and listens to other teachers daily because he recognizes he still has more to learn.
