No Limits – How to Blow the Top Off Your Capacity


Tuesdays, April 4, 11 & 18 | 3-4:30 PM ET

No one has time these days to start new projects. We can't find time; we have to make time. This new Public Media Learns three-part mastermind course will teach you how to increase your capacity and allow you to share your tips for getting things done and hear your colleagues' secrets to time management.

Could it be that many of us have failed to expand our potential because we have allowed what we perceive as capacity to define us? What if our limits are not really our limits?

Maxwell identifies 17 core capacities. Some of these are abilities we all already possess, such as energy, creativity, and leadership. Others are aspects of our lives controlled by our choices, like our attitudes, character, and intentionality. Maxwell examines each of these capacities and provides clear and actionable advice on how you can increase your potential in each.

This course facilitated by Amy Burkett, PBS Charlotte general manager and certified John Maxwell trainer, speaker, and coach. New York Times bestselling author John C. Maxwell’s book No Limits is mandatory reading for the course.


  • Learn to increase your capacity
  • Share time management techniques
  • Familiarize yourself with the 17 core capacities by John C. Maxwell
  • Learn best practices for interpreting and applying these principles in your day-to-day work
