In this episode, John Maxwell teaches five ways that leaders need to stretch themselves in order to grow. He sets up this lesson by teaching the Law of the Rubber Band, which says, “Growth stops when you lose the tension between where you are and where you can be.”

Mark Cole is joined by Traci Morrow for the application portion of the episode to discuss the areas of their lives they’ve had to take out of “automatic” and how their roles as leaders have required them to stretch their perspectives.
