For more than 10 years now, Focus on the Family has sent team members to Willow Creek’s Global Leadership Summit. We’ve found the benefits to be well worth the investment.
Our staffers return to the office from the conferences praising the quality of the speakers and the practicality of the timely content. As an organization, we benefit from our employees learning about the newest developments in leadership theory as well gleaning tried-and-true principles from best practices.
One year, a manager was so inspired by what he had learned that he purchased the DVD of the sessions to share with his team. And one of our directors shares how a talk she listened to on work/life balance made such an impact on her that now, years later, she still lives out the lesson she learned to put her family first.
And that’s what sets the Global Leadership Summit apart from many other such conferences: it’s rooted in the Christian perspective, and it teaches leadership as a holistic quality that encompasses work, ministry and home life. It’s about both equipping and inspiring.
Opportunities like these multiply our talents for the glory of God. If you’re hoping to hone your influence to bless your community, I’d encourage you to consider attending through one of the 700 host sites around the world.
This year’s summit will take place on Aug. 6 and 7 and online registration is available.
