GLS2012 – 2 – Condoleezza Rice – No Higher Honour

A fantastic session from Condoleezza Rice which really took our view of leadership to another level. It is so easy to get focused on the pressing issues in front of us and lose sight of everything else. Condoleezza reminds us of the bigger challenges we face and the need to inspire those around us about the future.

Bill reminded us about the privilege of leadership and here we have been confronted with the responsibility that comes with leadership and the real need to maintain helpful perspective.

I thought this quote was great:

One of history’s little tricks is to make what seemed impossible become inevitable

Here is the session breakdown:

I. Three Big Shocks

II. Freedom and Democracy

III. Finding Opportunities Amidst Challenges
