Leadership

I went to a conference on Friday which was the Bill Hybels leadership summit. I went free and so it was a sort of 'nice to know' kind of day. Unquestionably, Hybels is an amazing leader and today I read his new book 'Holy Discontent'. Good stuff if you are looking for fresh vision or working out how to make the most of the things Giod has given you. His invited speakers were also stimulating and inspiring. If Hybel had one book to commend to us it was the memoir of 'Carly Fiorina' who was the ex-CEO of HP and it is also a good read. Quite a woman. The most thought-provoking talk was a business guru called Marcus Buckingham who has a thesis that you need to leverage your strenghts not work on you weaknesses. Check him out on Youtube. All told not a bad way to spend the day.
