Global Leadership Summit (GLS): Here are some short comments and key points which stood out to some of us from last week’s Global Leadership Summit:

“My GLS experience was magnificent. We had inspirational speakers like Craig Groeschel, TD Jakes, Simon Sinek, Sheila Heen and our very own Strive Masiyiwa. These people helped us grown in our leadership and in our faith. They showed support of human equality and women empowerment. They talked about what it takes to be an exemplary leader. Thank you MCC for this wonderful two days!” @Tatenda Chigwanda 1J

“No one will respect someone who becomes a leader to be famous, but everyone will respect someone who is famous because of leadership. 

Leaders are classified as eagles and eagles don’t just fly, they learn to fly by falling. What matters after falling is getting back up.” @Tawananyasha Takaendisa 2I

“I’m dying… and so are you! Many die before actually dying a physical death. Fear of failure and taking risks holds people back and therefore we sometimes never really live.” @Ngonidzashe Man’ombe L6S

“Learn to walk through your pain and never, never give up.” @Cleopatra Chigumba L6S

“GLS 2018 was packed with powerful speakers who presented topical, enriching and God-inspired leadership skills for me as an educator. Leadership in education is discipleship and provides opportunities to lead that young generation to the Godly Kingdom. As educators, we must delegate power to our students and not just tasks. We must make learners feel empowered with our teaching approaches to them” @Mr J. Jaravani

“I was greatly moved during the interview of Mr Strive Masiyiwa by Bishop T. D. Jakes. I learnt that standing up for what is right, as long as you hold on to your values and principles from the Bible, God will see you through. In another session, John Maxwell clearly outlined the characteristics of all leaders but the most touching aspect was when he referred to “where the ceiling of my potential is the floor of my God Room”. God increases what we are doing to even more.” @Mr M. Chigudu

“The GLS turned out to be an exhilarating and dynamic intellectual milieu.” @Mr T. Mashungu

Reflection “But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weakness, so that Christ’s power may rest on me.” 2 Corinthians 12:9 (NIV)
