This summer, I attended a conference on leadership called the Global Leadership Summit. I was invited by a friend, who sold me on the idea by telling me that Brené Brown would be speaking.
What I got (in addition to Brené, of course) was 2 full days of inspiring talks that influenced me to want to be a better leader, a better team member and a better person across my entire life. They also gave me the tools to figure out how to do better.
My primary homework now (of course, because who doesn’t love homework?) is to read a lot of leadership books. A LOT.
Inspired to add to my book list, I searched on Amazon for the best books on leadership. And guess what I found… Many of these speakers that I watched at this summit also ended up on the Amazon “best-books” list. That’s because they’re true leaders in their field.
If I learned anything during this conference, it was that their words and ideas are worth the time you’ll put towards learning.
