Each year The John Maxwell Team looks to identify leaders who stand out in their community, their careers and in their daily lives. We are on a mission to recognize the people who go beyond themselves to make a positive impact in the lives of other people.

We are proud to announce the Top 100 candidates for the 4th John C. Maxwell Transformational Leadership Awards!

These are leaders that you helped us identify who are doing something that makes a difference, with people who make a difference, at a time that makes a difference!

You are encouraged to also watch John’s message below about this year’s award. The nomination period for 2017 is over, but our evaluations continue as we seek to identify the top 30, the top 10 and the eventual winner.



Each year my team and I look to recognize a leader who stands out and is making a difference above and beyond, and identifying that leader started with you! This year we received thousands of nominations of over the course of this spring and summer and narrowed it down to just a handful. On August 17th we honored the three finalists who were able to join me at the International Maxwell Training event. They included Dr. Ivan Misner, Pastor Daniel Floyd, Mr. Steve Finn, who are all making a huge impact in the lives of others. As I often share, a leader is one who knows the way, goes the way, and shows the way! And these Final Three have modeled that for all of us. At the end of the evening we celebrated with Dr. Ivan Misner, who was chosen as this year’s 2016 winner. Please join me in congratulating Ivan and all of our candidates for the impact they are making!
