GLS Day Two – Danielle Strickland Session Notes

GLS Day Two – Danielle Strickland Session Notes


Each year I attend The Global Leadership Summit from the satellite location at my home church in Lafayette, IN.  This year, I’ve been invited to be a part of the social media/live-blogging team to share my notes from this year’s Summit.  So, tune in for the next 2 days and catch the notes from each of the speakers.

It’s my hope that these notes will not only add value to you as a leader, but also give you some practical ideas to share the notes with your team.  Also, I’ll have some extras for you, so you’ll want to check back often and see what’s happening!  Lastly, head over to my Facebook page to join in on the conversation and let’s share our favorite quotes and take-aways there!

The Global Leadership Summit is a two-day event telecast LIVE in HD from Willow’s campus near Chicago every August to hundreds of locations in North America. You are invited to join an expected 305,000 people committed to getting better as leaders in 2016. Throughout the fall, Summit events take place at an additional 675+ sites in 125 countries and 59 languages.

  • There is a difference between spiritual leadership and regular leadership.
  • Judges 6:11-24 – the story of Gideon
  • True peace isn’t the absence of conflict, but the presence of justice – MLK Jr.
  • God wants all leaders to walk into shalom and then take it outward.
  • God calls out the strength that already existed in Gideon in the midst of his doubt.
  • Everybody has the tape in their minds that tells them all the reasons they can’t or shouldn’t do something.
  • God says to stop the “tape.”
  • Replace that tape with the tape that God plays for us – believe what He already says is true about us.
  • God wants you for who you are.
  • We need to agree with God about who He is.  We’re not Him.
  • In America, we struggle with self-sufficiency rather than trusting God for what we need.
  • You have to create pockets of dependence on God so he can show up in real life for you.

Those are notes from this great story teller!  What would you add?  Let’s continue the conversation on Facebook…
