Local connection to Transformation Costa Rica lead by
a global team of coaches with The John Maxwell Team.


Regina-based coach, Jill Poulton will be joining leadership expert John C. Maxwell and 250 of his team of certified international coaches, volunteers and leaders in San José, Costa Rica at the invitation of President Luis Guillermo Solís, from March 10-15 . The special delegation will conduct a national not-for-profit leadership education project known as Transformación Costa Rica.

This massive endeavour is a social transformation initiative led by Maxwell and his Foundation, "John Maxwell Leadership Foundation", which aims to make training in values nd leadership principles accessible to participants at no cost.  The powerful Maxwell Round Table Method begins by equipping individuals in a structured process, then radiates from individual to individual for a massive, intentional, viral leadership development effect.

Over the course of five rigorous days, the specially trained delegation will meet with seven pillars of influence: government, education, media, business, arts, faith and community leaders. Their goal is to transfer proven tools to the people of Costa Rica in an intentional effort to bring transformational energy to the country using the Maxwell Roundtable Method to foster two-way communication in a structured environment.  For their leadership development and ability to replicate the learning, participants are taught to facilitate and duplicate the Maxwell Roundtable Method.

The goal is to reach 10% of the Costa Rican population, or 400,000 participants. Transformación Costa Rica carries the slogan "The transformation in me", because it resides in each of us, in each person, the ability to change, to improve, with the conviction that if one changes, the world changes. This process is expected to create a cultural paradigm shift from the top down,  table to table, participant to participant.

“This is Operation Leadership Lift-off for Costa Rica,” John Maxwell said. “Literally, hundreds of people from all over the world are paying their own way to serve, add value and make a difference in Costa Rica. This is how transformation happens - one person cares enough to take action - then hundreds care enough to take action.”

Maxwell and his team have been invited to deliver the Maxwell Round Table Method by the leaders of 22 nations. He and a special delegation have already delivered the method in Guatemala and Paraguay with visits to more countries in the works.
