Global Leadership Summit (GLS) 2016: Words of Wisdom

Last week, Thursday and Friday, I was blessed enough to attend the Global Leadership Summit 2016 at a satellite facility at The Compass Church in Naperville.

I want to thank The Compass for hosting this event. Next year's summit, which broadcasts live from the home base in Barrington, IL, has already sold out their 7,000+ seat facility! The summit has been held annually since 1992 and is simulcast at over 550 locations in 675 cities, 130 countries to over 300,000 people.

This was the most amazing conference I have attended in my 20+ years as a business professional. I kept thinking, I wish my boss was here (and he is not religious at all).

The summit is led by some of the most intelligent, nobel minds of our lifetime. It was so inspiring to me, I have to share this information thinking others may not know of its existence and be curious enough to look into it.

The goal of the summit is to inspire minds and hearts to news ways of looking at our lives in the workplace.  This is not just for "leaders" as the title implies, it is for everyone! It will give folks a toolbox to tap into their leadership potential no matter what role they play in life. Even stay at home parents could learn from this!

Personally and professionally, I want to embrace hearts and souls thru my work activities and not just build relationships and execute "transactions."

I leave you with my personal highlights reel for each speaker which is only the tip of the iceberg of their talks.  I am sure each attendee would have a different list of bullet points. This conference fans your spiritual flame and sparks your motivational leadership potential with real life testimonies, strategies and action items to extend into every day life for every day use!
