Is your school climate struggling? Do your students need help connecting with one another or finding their voice? iLead’s peer-to-peer process provides an environment for students to develop authentic relationships while being intentional to learn and live good leadership values.
iLead is John Maxwell’s values-based leadership development designed specifically for students. It combines John’s proven content with a peer-to-peer process that allows students to practice leadership as they are learning it.
iLead is done in small groups of 4-6 students, once a week for 8 weeks. It is designed to be done as a peer-to-peer program. All students are trained to be facilitators and encouraged to take turns facilitating. The content can be accessed digitally or printed. Students are asked to submit a pre and post assessment, and a sponsor is asked to submit attendance.
To begin using iLead, click the button under “Next Steps” to register and watch a video on “Transformation Tables”. Once you have completed the registration process, you will receive an email providing you with credentials to our web-based learning system to access the content. Have questions?

The Maxwell Leadership Foundation is passionate about growing leaders who create powerful positive change. We believe one of the most effective ways to do this is by getting people around a table to intentionally learn and live good values. iLead provides a tool to accomplish this.
You have likely heard me say that once you have tasted significance, success will never satisfy. That’s because success is what we do for ourselves, while significance is what we do for others. I am an extraordinarily blessed man who has experienced some meaningful achievements:
And yet launching iLead is the most significant thing I have ever done.
In fact, I believe that iLead will have the biggest impact of all and will be the most important thing I ever do. By providing young people the opportunity to participate in iLead, we are offering tomorrow’s leaders the foundation and development that will allow them to succeed at home, school and at work.
iLead is unique in that the peer to peer roundtable methodology encourages participation and asks students to commit to weekly action steps. That consistency compounds and produces life change over the course of 32 weeks—students grow as a result of the content, its application, and the experience of facilitating their own group.
Being a part of iLead is an invitation to be part of something significant—to be part of a movement that is making a difference.
My team would love to talk with you about ways you can get involved in bringing iLead to students in your community or internationally. I invite you to look at our website and reach out if we can be of service to you as you consider iLead.

There is no charge to access the iLead material. Our goal is to value people, grow leaders and transform lives. We are committed to making the curriculum accessible to as many youth as possible. Our only request is for sponsors to submit student attendance at the conclusion of each unit of iLead and for student access to complete the unit pre and post assessments provided within the iLead platform.
The images or content of the curriculum cannot be changed without written, express consent from Maxwell Leadership Foundation.
iLead is designed for middle school students ages 11-13. iLead has been successfully implemented with high school students. Coming in Fall, 2023, Maxwell Leadership will launch an elementary version of iLead.
Surveys are important to the Maxwell Leadership Foundation as they provide quantitative data to measure effectiveness and impact of the iLead content. Survey data is also utilized to create additional material and tools to support iLead.
iLead is the title of the values-based leadership content provided through the Maxwell Leadership Foundation. The first 16 values are grouped together to form iChoose. iDo is the next grouping of 16 values with a focus on action. The final grouping of values is called iLead. These three volumes represent the entire content of iLead. Currently, iChoose and iDo are available through the learning management system.
The order of the lessons is intentional, but the lessons stand on their own in any order.
There are a few ways to support iLead if you do not work directly with students. One great way is to provide the iLead website information to those who do work with youth www.maxwellleadership.org/ilead Here they can request a sample, join a Explore iLead Zoom or read additional information provided on the website. Additionally, you can donate to support iLead here. Click Here to Donate. $52.00 will support iLead to a classroom for 1 year.
At the request of Dr. John C. Maxwell, iLead is to remain free and available to any person wanting to bring iLead to youth throughout the United States and the world. It is important to note that, if you are currently a Maxwell Leadership Certified Coach, iLead is to remain free to any participants.
If you have additional questions, please reach out to us at, iLead@jmlf.org
Would you consider partnering with us financially to make iLead accessible to as many students as possible?
We need leaders who are hungry to bring transformation to their sphere of influence through Transformational Roundtables by John C. Maxwell.
Leadership flows from the top down and the MLF has seen incredible success when an intentional effort is made to impact the key streams of influence within a country. When the MLF marries its influence, resources and tools with the desire and influence of top levels of leadership in the key streams the results are truly transformational. As leaders are changed, one by one, they begin to have a transformational impact on those around them.
The MLF adds values to leaders who multiply value to others and the results are growing leaders who transform the world around them.
The values-based roundtables are the key tool used to help make people aware of leadership values, provide opportunities for self-reflection, and a commitment to taking one measurable step forward each week. The roundtable setting provides a conversational environment, free of judgment that produces positive change through a commitment to growth every single week. Steps may be small, but consistency compounds and the results snowball. Roundtables have proven to be a practical and successful method for forming new habits and experiencing true life-change.
As individual lives are changed, the companies where those individuals work are changed, the culture of organizations change, and the results are real and measurable.
Imagine the impact as key streams of influence are collectively impacted and begin The Maxwell Leadership Foundation equips leaders to transform their world, and we are doing it one country at a time.to see transformation that positively impacts the entire community.
