GLS2012 – 5 – Craig Groeschel – The Strongest Link

Craig Groeschel never disappoints! Every time he delivers challenging message with a lot of humour.

This time he brought a fascinating message to the generations; standing in the middle and speaking to those who are older and those who are younger. For the older generation there was a call to invest in those who are younger and not be threatened by them. For the younger generation there was a warning not to slip into an ‘entitlement mentality’.

Here are a couple of great quotes:

Respect is earned, but honour is given

If you delegate tasks you create followers, if you delegate authority you create leaders
