Last year I had the privilege of meeting with Orrin Woodward, co-founder of TEAM and co-author of the bestselling book Launching a Leadership Revolution: Mastering the Five Levels of Influence.
TEAM is a leadership organization, offering leadership training and products.
While I am not an associate and have no affiliation with TEAM, I have been thoroughly impressed with their values, aspirations, and systems since learning about the organization.
I found Orrin to be a humble, dedicated, visionary leader on a mission to make the world a better place. His submission to God radiates and his unassuming sincerity is refreshing.
“You can tell the size of the leader by the way they treat people who cannot help them. ” -Orrin Woodward
Furthermore, his dedication to the cause of liberty underlies all his actions and organizations. Not only does he help individuals become financially independent and personally free, but he also strives to restore America to the principles that made her great.
We had an invigorating, heartfelt meeting and I look forward to collaborative efforts to restore freedom and ensure prosperity. I subscribe to his blog and have thoroughly enjoyed his insights on leadership and freedom.
One of the things I appreciate most about Orrin is his unyielding commitment to performance-based business and his staunch stance against aristocracy in any form, whether in business, government or any other aspect of society.
His company integrates a policy council comprised of the best performers within the company at any given time. The only way to join the council is to perform — no special favors, no connections, no money can buy anyone in. As Orrin says:
“There are only two ways to make money in this world: economically (producers) and politically (exploiters). Leaders are responsible for creating a culture with a level playing field to reward the producers. The more rewards are given to the political exploiters the less that is left for the economic producers, resulting in less total production in your business.”
This is particularly notable given the aristocracy that abounds in traditional network marketing, which Orrin has battled against for years.
