This past week I had the opportunity to attend the Willow Creek Global Leadership Summit. It was 2 days of fabulous teaching about leadership issues, and as I sat and soaked in this teaching, I was reminded of this larger “global leadership community” that longs for this kind of training, teaching and encouragement. I was one of the privileged that was able to attend the main site, then the Summit was broadcast to cities around the world, and thousands of people were able to participate. I came back home filled up, encouraged and really challenged in my personal leadership in in the organization I work for.
Today I’m reminded of the people that weren’t able to attend this Summit or others like it. There’s still a great need for training and resources, and there are so many leaders that long for this kind of event, but they’re unable to attend because of their geography, there economic status, their language, or the political situation in their country. How can we reach them? How can we train them?
I’m reminded of the verse in 2 Timothy 2:2 “And what you have heard from me in the presence of many witnesses entrust to faithful men who will be able to teach others also.” We were told in the Word to pass on the things we have learned. We were told by Paul to be multipliers and to teach others who will teach others.
We are a part of a “Global Leadership Community”. Let’s share what we have learned. Let’s pass along things that have helped us become better leaders to young leaders that are longing to learn. don’t be selfish with the knowledge you have, but be generous and give it away! Let’s help those that don’t have access to this kind of training to be connected, informed, trained and encouraged. Let’s be a “Community”.
