Global Leadership Summit 2011 – Session 8

Steven Furtick Now that what I call saving the best until last!  What a finish to the Summit.  Not only were his words challenging, the reality of his story as a church leader is also inspiring.  And all from a guy who is only 31.  If nothing else it is a much needed reminder that age […]

Global Leadership Summit 2011 – Session 7

John Dickson As is often the case in life, we have heard the message before.  Equally often, however, we need to hear it again.  John’s thoughts and study are not likely to have told us much we hadn’t heard before, but most, if not all, of us as leaders can be tempted down the wrong […]

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 […]

Global Leadership Summit 2011 – Session 1
