Global Leadership Summit 2013

I’ve had a day now to absorb all the info obtained from the 2013 Global Leadership Summit. This year marked my first year attending the event. It was life-changing … and I don’t say that lightly. This will, no doubt, become an annual event.

So how does one recover after having a firehose of information unleashed on you? The way I’ll try to do that is to capture brief highlights of each speaker. I’m nervous about doing that, though, because the tiny sound bite I’m recording here won’t even come close to doing justice to the ideas each speaker develops. I’m afraid my sound bites will sound too simple or too obscure. After all, it’s hard to keep your hand steady when you’re being hit with a firehose. But that’s OK … I’m doing this to help me more than you. But if these nuggets happen to help you too, then good for both of us! ūüôā

So … here are my handpicked (and heavily paraphrased) highlights:

Bill Hybels

Everyone wins when a leader gets better.

Visions are Holy commodities – don’t kill them off!

General Colin Powell

You get nowhere without followers who want to follow you.

Patrick Lencioni

Help (coworkers) connect to why they’re serving others.

Liz Wiseman

Leaders are Diminishers or Multipliers. Watch out for unintentional Diminishers!

Chris Brown

Make room at the top for young eagles so they don’t have to leave.

Bob Goff

Move from agreeing with Jesus to doing stuff.

Mark Burnett

On the Bible series: “God” movies tend to show His anger. I wanted to show God’s love.

Joseph Grenny

Six sources of influence exist. Each one will either work for you or against you.

Vijay Govindarajan

Manage the present, selectively abandon the past, create the future.

Brené Brown

What kills love also kills organizations: shame, betrayal, blame, disrespect, withholding

Oscar Mariu

The size of your harvest depends on how many leaders you have.

Never do ministry alone!

Dr. Henry Cloud

The number one factor in getting from “here” to “there” is believing it can be done.

The brain begins to change when you are out of control of circumstances that affect you.

Gary Schwammlein

If you want your leadership to matter, lead in the things that matter to God.

Andy Stanley

When talking about the word “church”:¬†We think of “church” as a building, but Jesus meant a gathering of His people.
