GLS2012 – 4 – John Ortberg – A leader of unimaginable influence

A different type of session from John Ortberg which brought a helpful balance to the GLS. John helped us focus again on Jesus, the ultimate model of a leader. While business theory can be really useful, it is good to remember that we do not need to go outside the bible to find great leadership.

It could be tempting to wonder what the point of this session is given that the audience is primarily made up of Christian leaders. However, even putting aside the benefit for those listening who are not fully aware of who Jesus is, it was still helpful as a reminder of the basics. This in itself is a great leadership lesson. It can be easy to assume that everyone knows and remembers the foundational information. Yet re-stating first principles can be immensely useful for everyone in an organisation as it brings our focus back to where it needs to be.

Here is the session breakdown:

I. Jesus’ Enduring Influence
