Not Stephen Covey; not John Maxwell, not even Tony Robbins has signed as many books at one time as Orrin Woodward. For in Columbus, Ohio, Mr. Woodward broke the Guinness World Record for largest book signing.
Leadership is about influence and Orrin, simply put, is an Influencer. Out of all the books ever written and all the authors who have ever written a book, only one person holds the Guinness World Record for the biggest book signing.
Orrin Woodward set the record because he has the largest following of committed leaders in the world today. The are many leadership icons with fans, but Orrin has built a following. This is the difference. While many talk about leadership, Orrin tracks his scoreboard to track actual influence towards a specific objective. Given this distinction, Orrin Woodward is indisputably one of the biggest influencers of this generation.
The Guinness World Record follows on the heels of his recent Inc Magazine Top 20 Leadership recognition and his business partner Chris Brady's Top 40 position. The two are the principle founders of LIFE Leadership and their leadership company is quickly becoming a force to reckon with in the leadership genre.
Congratulations to Orrin and his LIFE Leadership company for breaking the record by almost 50% by signing 6,786 books in 6 1/2 hours. That is over 1,000 books per hour which cannot be accomplished without the power of a well disciplined community.
