Last week I had the privilege of being in a room for two days with eight thousand other leaders at Willow Creek Community Church in Chicago.  What an amazing opportunity!  What an amazing experience!

I thought I would share a few quotes from my notes.  Hopefully you will find some “tidbits” that will be helpful in developing your leadership skills.
