Global Leadership Summit 2014 Highlights – Day Two

Learning continuously is important for effective leadership in any arena–church, business, non-profits, family, etc.  My wife [her blog on learning and leadership] and I have the privilege the past two days to attend the Willow Creek Global Leadership Summit live stream from Orlando.  Here are some of Day Two highlights. #GLS14

  • @CTmagazine:  There are only two ways to handle crucial conversations… If you don’t talk it out, you will act it out.
  • Crucial conversations are either a pit or a path to achieving your super awesome goals.

  •  You don’t have to know every step up the mountain in order to begin the climb.
  • Life is short; we must feel urgency about the great things God has for us.  The stakes are too high to die with a small vision.
  • What is it that God wants us to conquer?  How do you want your life to count?
  • Life is short; God is big; Take the next step.

What has been one of your takeaways from the Summit?  What is your next step?

    I’m really sorry I missed this! What great nuggets, though, to come away with. If you’re not going to do anything about the answer then don’t ask. What wise words! It would save so much unnecessary arguing and disagreements. And life is too short and the stakes too high to die with a small vision–that one really grabbed my heart. Thanks, Steve, for sharing these.

      Thanks Dayle. I am still trying to sort through the content from the 2 days and decide what I will apply. We had to come home after the summit and write our last MA paper on Ethical Leadership Covenant. Terry and I went for a walk this morning and got back to talking about the summit. I have a couple ideas for application. thanks for commenting! You are such an encouragement!
