This question that Bill Hybels has presented at several Leadership Summit sessions has always stuck with me: "Whose responsibility is it to keep their leadership fresh or to self lead well?" The answer "I am." Or "You are."
There are many ways to for us to recharge our spiritual life and leadership core and it really is a matter of preference. Some like the mountains. For others the desert. For me it is the city. Many would find this strange, but I find a sense of solace by getting lost in the midst of the activity that a big city presents. And in this case it is Chicago.
Over the next couple of days my leadership passions will be further refueled as I will be engaged in a series of discussions and sessions at the Leadership Summit Pastors Debrief.
And when you are in Chicago -- you gotta have Chicago Style Deep Dish Pizza -- it is simply the best!
