My friend Bob invited me to a leadership event that took place this past Friday. Focused on SEO, Social Media, advertising, and blogging, why would I want to go to a leadership event? We all have friends like this. Maybe it’s the friend who encourages you to pick up this wonderful, new, must-read book or the uncle who sends you emails that are meant to encourage you. Sometimes you say ‘yes’ and sometimes you ignore the call. After all, my email box is filled every morning with dozens of requests from dozens of people and companies and I only have time to respond to so many requests. I’m torn.
So after a few prods, I decided to attend. After all, it’s hard to say ‘no’ to Bob, one of the most-connected, kind, and intentional men I know. I’m glad I did and I would encourage you to attend as well.
There is something magical about attending an event that connects people live from places around the world.
Hearing the infectious laugh of the influential and peaceful Bishop Desmund Tutu, live from South Africa, or internalizing the inspiring story of former advertising executive, Laura Schroff’s encounter with an 11-year-old panhandler, or connecting with Braveheart’s screenwriter, Randall Wallace’s testimony. In a word, it’s a powerful and welcome attack on your senses.
If your leadership is not all about you it will live beyond you.

Leadercast is focused on building Leaders Worth Following.
Leadership is not reserved for those with a ‘C’ in their title. We need better leaders in our communities, businesses, organizations, and in homes across the world. Leadercast exists to serve individuals and organizations across all sectors who want to become intentional about raising their standard of leadership.
Leadercast believes that certain behaviors serve as the framework of a leader worth following:
- Simplicity - brings clarity to the complex.
- Creativity - fosters an atmosphere that allows others to dream.
- Bravery - possesses a posture of unrelenting boldness.
- Beyond You - leverages influence for the sake of others.
- Insight - resolves to consistently do the wise thing.
- Vision - moves towards a preferred future with little deviation.
- Culture - architects the conditions to win.
Leadercast exists to positively change the way the world thinks about leadership.
The 2015 theme — The Brave Ones — challenges leaders to lead with a sense of Bravery, possessing a posture of unrelenting boldness. Join Atlanta’s best leaders at Leadercast Live on May 8, 2015 and discover what it means to be a leader worth following.
Now I can stay focused on SEO, Social Media, advertising, and blogging. But now, I can focus with better simplicity, creativity, insight, bravery, and vision, in a way that connects with and serves our culture for the sake of others. I’ll see you in 2015 in Atlanta or maybe from a satellite event in the Dallas, Ft. Worth Area!
