Great Quotes from Day 2 of the Leadership Summit

The Global Leadership Summit wrapped last Friday and just like day 1, day 2 was filled with inspiring and transforming quotes to build strong leaders. Day 2 speakers also included some great quotes in their own remarks (so when you see an Abraham Lincoln quote below, he wasn’t there — just quoted). Here are some of the great quotes from day via my notes …

“When angry you will make the best speech you will ever regret.” — Bill Ury

“Best move in negotiation (and conflict) is to go to the balcony (a place of perspective) instead of the stage.” — Bill Ury

So what summit quotes inspire your leadership to be part of Jesus work in transforming this world?

Once again the Summit provided 2 great days of leadership training, and a great year ahead for leadership application. Can’t wait until August 8-9, 2013 for next year’s Summit. Sharon and I and 20 others from Christ Lutheran are registered and ready to go, and hoping to bring more! Click here to register.
