NPC managers and members of the Management Committee led by President Ma. Gladys Cruz-Sta. Rita joins 800 leaders from business, religious, education, and government sectors to hear American author and leadership guru, Dr. John C. Maxwell speak at the Sofitel Hotel Philippine Plaza on Monday (July 6, 2015).

A New York Times bestselling author, coach and speaker who has written 82 books and sold 24 million copies, Maxwell shared among the audience some tips from his newest book, The 15 Invaluable Laws of Growth.

“Among the laws he shared, my favorite is the Law of Intentionality. If we are not intentional, we cannot reach our potential,” said Treasury Management Manager Ms. Laura Manibay. This was seconded by Senior Department Manager for Internal Audit Ms. Lisa Arevalo and Revenue Management Department Manager Mr. Buddy Sarmiento. “It all starts with the intention and all the others follow,” they said.

Law of Intentionality says that growth is not automatic and as Maxwell puts it, “we have to grow on purpose and climb our way to success.”

The leadership guru also talked about the Law of Awareness or knowing one’s self to grow one’s self, Law of Consistency or how discipline makes one grow and the Law of Environment or having an environment conducive for one’s growth.
