You may be asking yourself, “What am I going to learn this year?”
Here are 6 Themes You Can Expect at the 2020 Global Leadership Summit.
In difficult times, you need to dig into your deepest reserves and build the critical muscle of grit and resilience. Brazilian Football Superstar, Kaká will talk about how he developed resilience and learned to handle pressures that come with high-stakes matches, injury and setbacks. Sadie Robertson Huff will share how she dealt with critics and developed resilience while growing up in the public spotlight. And four-time Summit faculty, Marcus Buckingham will outline new insights into resilience from his most recent research project.
Forward-thinking leaders move their organizations into an uncertain future through foresight and creativity. Life.Church senior pastor, Craig Groeschel, will describe the challenges you face when what you’ve done in the past isn’t working anymore and how you can break through to new growth. And Nike’s, Beth Comstock, will unpack insights from her career in innovation—and her book Imagine it Forward.
3. Intentionally Re-Thinking
Complex times call for smart leaders who are able to think in strategic and logical ways. Bishop T.D. Jakes will help you navigate the metrics of migrative leadership and challenge you to expand your current perspective. And best-selling author Rory Vaden will help you learn new ways to think about time so that that you can actually multiply it.
4. Leading in Difficult Times
Leadership is essential at all times, but in difficult times, it is critical. When difficulty and disruption come, strong and steady leaders will be able to weather the storms. Researcher, Dr. Tomas Chamorro-Premuzic, will help you understand the six traits leaders need most in a crisis. And Nona Jones will share why playing it safe is insufficient.
5. Building Trust
Trust is the currency of leadership. When you gain the trust of the people you lead, you will be able to inspire them to action. Harvard professor, Amy Edmondson, will describe key practices to create psychological safety on your team. Best-selling author, Lysa TerKeurst, will explore what might be holding your leadership and relationships back, and how you might move forward with more freedom. And behavioral investigator, Vanessa Van Edwards, will teach you how to make a positive impact with colleagues, bosses and peers by striking the perfect balance between warmth and competence.
6. Grander Vision
The Grander Vision videos present the stories of everyday people who stepped out in faith to accomplish a vision of multiplied impact. This year, the GLS will feature three stories of people who are living their grander vision including the incredible story of an 18-year old from Venezuela who, in the face of adversity, persevered to accomplish more than he could have imagined, and then surrendered it all for an even grander vision.
