Global Leadership Summit 2011 – Session 2

Dr Henry Cloud

This was a really helpful session for anyone who is involved with people, which is all leaders.  Henry Cloud talks about how we need to respond differently to people in three categories: wise, foolish and evil.  Perhaps the key message of this session was that too often we treat foolish people as if they were wise.  More specifically, we give foolish people lots of feedback and coaching, which only works with wise people who love such input.  A different approach is required.

Henry’s parting words to us: “Take the leadership challenge to not let somebody’s character problem stop your mission that God has called you to.”
