Leadership Development Opportunities

Thursday, March 15, 2018

By: Dana Powell, Community Mobilization Coordinator

The South Carolina Campaign to Prevent Teen Pregnancy (SC Campaign) is pleased to present several leadership development opportunities focused on John Maxwell’s best-selling book, The 15 Invaluable Laws of Growth. Our goal is for you to use these programs to enhance the leadership abilities of your organization's staff. 

Dana Powell, Community Mobilization Coordinator, is a Certified Speaker, Trainer, and Coach for the John Maxwell Team; and it is through this certification we are able to present this amazing opportunity to you. As a John Maxwell Team member, Dana’s desire is to add value by helping you tap into your potential, follow your passion, and live your lives on purpose.

The SC Campaign believes strong leaders are essential to healthy youth, bright futures, and strong communities. You and your team can participate in one of three ways:

  1. joining a mastermind group,
  2. hosting a lunch and learn, or
  3. attending a workshop. 

Join a Mastermind Group.

With a small group of likeminded people who are dedicated to personal growth, we will bring together our ideas and experiences as we study The 15 Invaluable Laws of Growth. This process will help shape our understanding of the material in a way that is far superior to simply reading a book on your own. We will combine all of our minds to becoming a “master” mind.

Mastermind Groups (MMG) will meet via conference call for 90 minutes each week over a 6 week period. You may select 2-3 people from your agency or team to participate. MMGs will have participants from several organizations.  If interested, you may be able to host a MMG in-person at your location. Contact Dana Powell  at for more information.

Happy Hour Tuesdays 3:30 pm-5:00 pm March 20–April 24

Host a Lunch and Learn.

Over about 45 minutes, you and at least 10 people you select will receive an overview of two to three of The 15 Invaluable Laws of Growth. Packed full of information, the goal of this mini-workshop is for your colleagues to walk away with the motivation and a desire for self-improvement to increase productivity and results. Everyone will leave with at least one strategy they can begin using immediately. You must have at least 10 people to host a lunch and learn and will be responsible for all logistics. Times will vary based on travel needs.
