This weekend some of the leaders of Christ Church, Virginia Water, participated in the Global Leadership Summit. It must be the largest annual leadership event in the world, with around 160,000 leaders in over 90 countries and 42 languages.
It is the most inspirational leadership event I have ever attended. I think this is my seventh or eighth. Here are some highlights from this year's Summit:
The 2012 Faculty included: Bill Hybels The Privilege of Leadership; Condoleezza Rice No Higher Honor; Jim Collins Great By Choice; Patrick Lencioni The Advantage: Why Organizational Health Trumps Everything Else; William Ury Getting to Yes: Negotiating Conflict; and John Ortberg A Leader of Unimaginable Influence.
Here are some more Faculty video clips
I have ordered Lencioni's book. Here's a link to more of his resources from the Table Group

We have found membership of the WCA an immense blessing to our church. God willing, I look forward to being at the 2013 Summit.
