Helmut’s story:

About Helmut Herder

For most of my boyhood, I dreamed of coming to America. I kept that dream alive as I completed my early education, graduated from an apprenticeship program, and served my mandatory time in the German Luftwaffe (Air Force). In 1969, my dream came true. A Master Sergeant in the US military sponsored me to immigrate to America.

I arrived in the United States with a suitcase, 100 dollars, and no knowledge of English. This situation was already a huge personal challenge for me. However, the day my sponsor picked me up from the airport, he told me that he had been transferred to South Korea and would not be able to help me get acclimated. I soon lost the job he had lined up for me because I could not communicate with my co-workers in English. My sponsor was leaving my new country, and I had no job, car, or place to sleep.

I felt like calling my father to send me a ticket home. But I could not tell him that I was not making it. As a man of faith, I turned to God and placed myself in His hands. What happened afterward was amazing, but the story is too long to tell here. Contact me if you would like me to share my story with your company or group.

I spent over 40 years working in various management and leadership roles, including vice president, within several companies. I have been implementing John Maxwell’s philosophies behind personal development in my own life for many years. I recognize the effects that the Laws of Leadership have on an individual’s growth and success. I continue to use these skills to enhance my productivity and decision-making. I became a certified John Maxwell team member in 2016 and founded Helmut Services in 2017 to guide others on their paths to success.

What My Father Taught Me

I will never forget one thing that my father said: “You can do anything if you put your mind to it.” He was living proof of that. When he was 18 years old, he was forced into World War II, where he was severely wounded and lost a leg. But that did not hold him back, and he advanced to a very high leadership position in the German Railroad. He set a lifelong example for me.
