What I learned from the Global Leadership Summit 2018 – Part one

What can we learn from our experiences?

Last week, I attended the Global Leadership Summit and was able to hear a variety of professional speakers give their thoughts on leadership.  As someone who takes diligent notes, I wanted to share my takeaways from this event with you.  Over the next two weeks in my #CJJblog I will be sharing some of what I learned at this event.  Have you attended a memorable event recently?  I would love to hear about it.  Please also reach out to me via social media if you have any stories or experiences while attending a speaking event.  I’m also open to suggestions for event I can attend as well!  Enjoy.

  • Ken Blanchard. Being a servant leader.  Dr. Blanchard (pictured above) did a fantastic job teaching us about how to be servant leaders.  Instead of having love of power, teach the power of love.
  • Change the leadership pyramid. Instead of working for the leader, the leader should work for the people.  How do you change things up?
  • Craig Groeschel. Pastor of the Life Church.  There are four keys that all efficient leaders have: heart, passion, humility, and resiliency. 
  • Angela Ahrendts. Senior VP of Apple.  Three C’s of leadership: communication, celebration, and connection.  Always remember that great leaders are great listeners.
  • T.D. Jakes.  Dream something so amazing, it scares you. Losing stimulates growth.  What did you learn from your last failure?  Believe in yourself so much, others laugh at you.
  • Danny Meyer. Establishments that provide the best service last the longest.  How do you provide the best service?  Here are the five A’s of making mistakes: be aware, acknowledge failure, apologize, act to correct, and apply additional generosity.

Did You Know?  Coach Jim Johnson will be speaking on leadership at the Monroe County Sherriff’s department on August 22nd.
