Thank you to Leadercast Lead Dallas Community!

Leadercast is over but leading well never ends. Leading well never ends because we need to keep learning and then apply what we learn to influence in positive ways and engage others in meaningful ways. The reverberations of Leadercast and what we heard and took to heart will continue, as they should.

We are grateful for the over 150 leaders that gathered at our host site at Chase Oaks. We are grateful to our sponsors, along with the great teams at Chase Oaks and Luxury of Red. We are also thankful to Weaving Influence for providing some great leadership books to give away.

Boundaries and Leadership: Dr. Henry Cloud

One of the Leadercast speakers on May 9th is Dr. Henry Cloud. Dr. Cloud brings engaging insights on life and leadership. His books are very thought-provoking and leadership-changing. To gain some added insights from Dr. Cloud, the video below is a recent exchange with Dave Ramsey.

Boundaries is an interesting topic. Later in the interview, there is an exchange that includes this thought from Dr. Cloud:

“…someone should be responsible for what they can control and someone else should be responsible for what they can control. Things like our own feelings, our own attitudes, and our belief systems are choices. Behaviors I can only control are mine. You can only control yours. And when we each take responsibility, we have something called ‘relationship’ in love and freedom…”

Time is running out to join us for Leadercast. Learn more and join us on May 9th. Refresh your leadership. Engage in leadership conversations.

Four Top Reasons to Attend Leadercast 2014

Leadercast is a one-day event in which different speakers get on stage to convey a message or issue a challenge to become a better person and leader. On May 9th, thousands will gather in many different places and, in our corner of the world, individuals will gather in north Dallas (specifically at Chase Oaks in Plano, Texas).

Leadercast Lead DallasSo, why attend Leadercast 2014? Good question. I have not attended Leadercast before but have heard from many leaders the value and excitement around what they have experienced at previous events. As a dedicated group – Authentic Leadership Dallas – we decided to jump all in and host this event.

Getting back to the question, here are 4 top reasons to attend Leadercast:

1 – Keep learning… always. Leading is about learning. Connected to learning is growth. Without growth, a leader’s mindset will become stale and outdated. Learning keeps leaders engaged, thoughtful, and thought-provoking. Attend Leadercast to keep learning, honing your leadership craft.

2 – Energize your leadership soul. Let’s be honest. As leaders, we can get worn down. Our leadership spirit needs to be lifted, renewed. Getting a lift in our leadership soul will deliver a lift to all those around us in our work and community. Attend Leadercast to energize your soul.

3 – Engage a community of leaders. Within our host site, many people will gather. There will be gap times, meaning there will be breaks between speakers so there will be time to engage a local community of leaders. Engaging a community of leaders translates into sharing experiences and knowledge. Attend Leadercast to engage a local community of leaders.

4 – Be this type of leader: …leaders worth following. The Leadercast tagline is “Building Leaders Worth Following.” Do you want to be a leader worth following? If so, the previous reasons will enable you to be a better leader and to help other leaders be better leaders. A snowball effect of the leadership kind! Attend Leadercast and become a leader worth following!

We hope you join us. Within seven hours on May 9th, my guess is you will be able to add many more reasons to why attending Leadercast 2014 was very valuable. We cannot wait to join you and discover new ways to be a leader worth following!

Leadercast Speaker Insight: Malcolm Gladwell

GladwellLeadercast 2014 is fast approaching and the speaker line-up is fantastic! We have been highlighting some of the speakers to prime everyone and get ready to engage in new ways to energize your leadership skills. Malcolm Gladwell is a distinguished author and has challenged us to think about certain ideas in new ways. His latest book is no different — David and Goliath: Underdogs, Misfits, and the Art of Battling Giants. Highlighted below is a video clip of an interview between Malcolm Gladwell and Issie Lapowsky with Inc.‘s Idea Lab.

To watch more of Inc.‘s interviews, check What Entrepreneurs Can Learn From Underdogs.

One more quick insight from Malcolm Gladwell in an Inc. article (The Real Reason David Beats Goliath):

“This is the classic story of the business world. The very same thing that appears to make a company so formidable–its size, its resources–serve as stumbling blocks when they’re forced to respond to a situation where the rules are changing, and where nimbleness, and flexibility, and adaptability are better attributes. Which is the story of David and Goliath, right? David had nimbleness. He changed the rules. He brought in the superior of technology.”

Get ready for Leadercast 2014!

Your leadership will be challenged anew and you will be energized! Join us for a day of insights and interaction. Register today!

Leadership is a choice, and leadership is continuing to learn and grow. Malcolm Gladwell along with other leaders will challenge us so join us for Leadercast on May 9th!
