Global Leadership Summit 2011

This past week I had the opportunity to take part in the Willow Creek Association's Global Leadership Summit.  Each year the GLS brings together an amazing faculty of spiritual, business, and political leaders to share what they have learned about leadership with others.  This years Summit featured:
  • Bill Hybels, Founding/Senior Pastor, Willow Creek Community Church
  • Len Schlessinger, President, Babson College; Action Trumps Everything
  • Hon. Cory A. Booker, Mayor of Newark, New Jersey
  • Rev. Dr. Brenda Salter Mcneil, Speaker, Thought leader
  • Seth Godin, Author, Marketing Blogger, Poke the Box
  • Steven Furtick, Lead Pastor, Elevation Church
  • Mama Maggie Gobran, Nobel Peace Prize Nominee, Founder of Stephen's Children Ministry
  • Michelle Rhee, Fmr. Chancellor of D.C. Public Schools, Founder of studentsfirst.org
  • Dr. Henry Cloud, Psychologist, Author, Necessary Endings
  • John Dickson, Director at the Centre for Public Christianity, Humilitas
  • Patrick Lencioni, The Table Group, Getting Naked
  • Erwin McManus, Activist, Filmmaker, Founder of Mosaic, Chasing Daylight
This was an amazing experience, and an awesome opportunity to hear from these leading experts on thought and leadership!

One of my passions is to equip other people to be great; I love to pass on valuable information that more than just me can benefit from, to that end, the next few blog posts will feature some of my Evernote notes from this event. 

If you attended, what are some things that you took away from this event?
