Bill HybelsBill Hybels opened the Global Leadership Summit. Hybels is the  founder and Senior Pastor of Willow Creek Community Church in South Barrington, IL. He also the founded The Global Leadership Summit, now in over 200 U.S. sites and over 260 cities worldwide including 85 countries. Here are my highlights from his session.

  • “Everyone wins when a leader gets better.”
  • “If you want more trees, you have to plant more seeds.”
  • “I hate cats.”
  • “Leaders, whether you like it or not, your whole organization takes its ‘seed-sowing’ queues from you.”
  • “Always stay experimental.”
  • “Recently I challenged our entire staff to be incessant tinkerers.”
  • “You are the most difficult person you will ever lead.”
  • “Many leaders incorrectly assume their most valuable asset is time — it’s their energy and ability to energize others.”
  • “What new initiatives are you going to move ahead in the next six weeks?”
  • “God didn’t make you a leader to respond to stuff. He made you a leader to move stuff ahead.”
  • “Leadership matters.”
  • “Senior pastors, make sure your greatest legacy is that your church will be well led after you leave it.”
  • “Don’t talk about ‘there’ until you build a case for why we can’t stay ‘here’.”
  • “I want to see Willow operating at its peak potential with the years I have left.”
  • “What an absolute privilege it is to be a leader… Have you thanked God recently for the privilege to lead something?”
