LOS ANGELES, Aug. 28, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Taking Vi leadership into the future, ViSalus officially announced today a strategic partnership with renowned leadership expert, speaker and best-selling author, John C. Maxwell. As a global initiative, Maxwell will collaborate with the ViSalus Founders to provide Vi Promoters with an indispensable resource known as the Leadership & Influence Development (LID) program.

Maxwell has trained more than 5 million leaders worldwide, written more than 60 books, and is ranked #1 in Inc. Magazine's Top 50 Leadership and Management Experts. He brings a bank of knowledge and expertise to a company with a strong history of breaking boundaries. "A leader who produces other leaders multiplies their influences," stated Maxwell.

"My Co-Founders and I have benefited tremendously by working with such an internationally recognized leadership expert," said Ryan Blair, ViSalus Co-Founder and CEO. "Integrating this leadership program into our community of Promoters taps into a model of mentorship designed for success. It furthers our investment in the Vi-Life as we work to improve life, health and prosperity around the world."

"I have had the opportunity to mentor ViSalus' three Founders who each have unparalleled creativity, intelligence and leadership potential," said Maxwell on collaborating with Blair, Mallen and Sarnicola. "It's been a real joy to be able to pour my life into the Vi Founders who I often affectionately refer to as the Three Musketeers."

"LID and Vitality are amazing opportunities to highlight Vi's direction and keep our dedication to Challenging the World innovative, forward-thinking and unstoppable," said Blair. "John C. Maxwell said, 'A leader is one who knows the way, goes the way, and shows the way,' and at ViSalus, our leaders are doing just that!"

The LID program kicked off with the first of three annual meetings in Atlanta this June, bringing together top ViSalus leaders to form an exclusive group. The members of this Founders' LID Group have earned the opportunity to work directly with Maxwell and the ViSalus Founders over a 12 month period. LID teaches Promoters specific leadership skills that they can use to not only raise their own leadership "lid," but duplicate that success throughout their teams.

Vitality 2014 (Houston, we have a solution!) will see thousands of Vi Customers and Promoters from all over the world come together to discover where ViSalus is headed next. ViSalus Co-Founder and CMO Blake Mallen will cover cutting-edge technology revolutionizing the PROJECT 10 Challenge, while ViSalus Co-Founder and Global Ambassador Nick Sarnicola will discuss promotional strategy and entrepreneurship. In addition, Maxwell will address the entire Vi Community, inspiring thousands while highlighting the ViSalus Founders' vision for the future.
