SOUTH BARRINGTON, Ill., June 21, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Willow Creek Association, an organization that has equipped pastors and church leaders for more than 20 years, turns to world-class, forward-thinking leaders in business, education, social justice arenas, churches, and the arts to impart hard-hitting leadership development to more than 75,000 leaders in the US on August 8 and 9. Faculty members at The Global Leadership Summit 2013 include General Colin Powell, former US Secretary of State, Mark Burnett, Emmy-Award winning executive producer of Survivor, The Voice, The Apprentice, Shark Tank, and The Bible mini-series, Patrick Lencioni, founder and president of the Table Group and best-selling author, Dr. Brené Brown, University of Houston research professor, and Bill Hybels, founder and senior pastor at Willow Creek Community Church.
Great leaders never stop learning and are determined to join with team members to get better every year. "When leaders get better, everyone wins," says Hybels. "It's your job to keep your passion hot. Do whatever you have to do, read whatever you have to read, go wherever you have to go to stay fired up." The Global Leadership Summit, best experienced in a team setting, allows leaders and their teams to build into each other, hold each other accountable, and in that environment, everyone has influence and the potential to spark positive change.
