This week, I was privileged to attend the Willow Creek Association Global Leadership Summit. The event is held every year in Chicago, but I attend a video venue here in Palm Beach Gardens. I highly respect Willow Creek Church Pastor and WCA Founder, Bill Hybels. He has been a stellar leader for many years and his stock continues to rise in my book.
The variety and quality of leaders at this event is unparallelled. Each year they gather well-know and lesser-know men and women from around the globe who are leading businesses and NGOs and ministries to present fresh leadership concepts to over 180,000 Summit participants.
For a very thorough look into the training and the specific talks given by these amazing leaders, access the official blog. There is a month’s worth of great reading on the site. One of the beauties of the Summit is that it serves as a place of exposure and access to such a variety of gifted leaders and communicators from an amazingly wide variety of fields.
I highly recommend the WCA Global Leadership Summit to anyone who is leading or plans to lead. The date next year is August 9/10. I am a better leader today and will be into the future because I was involved in the 2011 Summit.
