Ashley House Shares Her Global Leadership Summit Takeaways

November 1st, 2015 Posted in Events

The Global Leadership Summit came to town Thursday, October 22nd & Friday, October 23rd. A world class line-up of speakers were broadcast on the big screen at Community Pentecostal Church, while 400+ leaders from the nation’s capital gathered to learn how to lead well in their workplace, family, church and community. I was excited to once again attend GLS this year, after taking a two year break. I walked away feeling inspired, refreshed and energized to put what I learned into practice.

They make you a better communicator and thinker. They will make you stand out from the crowd and allow you to interact better with the general population, not to mention your coworkers and family. Often, not enough attention is given to personal development at work. Businesses are focused on making money and making their business function day to day without thinking about building leaders. I encourage you, yes you, to really consider attending the conference and taking some time to think about how God is calling you to lead (because He is, I promise!). 2016 conference details.

My heart was moved to hear the vision and leadership Warden Cain took at Angola Prison for renewal and restoration in one of Americas former most-violent prisons. His powerful story of hearing God and faithfully following has contributed to life change for some of the most broken and hurting men-the inmates of Louisiana State prison.


Quotes to Remember: A Little Nugget to Take with You.

“Grit is passion and perseverance over the long haul.

Bill Hybels, Senior Pastor of Willow Creek Community Church

”Money is like blood, food, oxygen and water. They are necessary for life, but they are not the point of life.”

Jim Collins, Author

“There are three styles of interaction – Takers, Givers and Matchers. Takers think about every interaction as taking something from others while giving nothing back. Givers enjoy helping others and often do so with no strings attached. Matchers try to keep an even balance of Takers and Givers. Your style is the way you treat most of the people most of the time. It’s your default.”

Adam Grant, Professor, Wharton School of Business, University of Pennsylvania

“There is a real aura of danger around failure. Problems re-occur because there is a fear of failure. We will fail. We need to make it safe to fail. If you get over the embarrassment of failure, you will become more creative.”

Ed Catmull, Co-founder of Pixar, President of Walt Disney Animation

“As leaders, we can choose comfort or you can choose courage. We can’t choose both. Courage is uncomfortable. That is why it’s rare. The bravest among us will always be the most broken-hearted because we have the courage to love.”

Dr. Brene Brown, Author

“Diverse teams make more effective decisions.”

Sallie Krawcheck, Former President of the Global Wealth & Investment Management Division of Bank of America

“The fastest way to change the feedback culture in your organization is for the leaders to get better at receiving feedback.”

“Longevity is perhaps the greatest thing you can have as a leader.”

Brian Huston, Senior Pastor of Hillsong Church

“One of the most amazing things about Jesus’ leadership is He gave power away.”

Sam Adeyemi, Senior Pastor of DayStar Centre in Nigeria

“When the challenge level goes up, work satisfaction goes up. When the challenge is low, satisfaction at work is low.”

Liz Wiseman, President of The Wiseman Group

”Talent can get you to the top. Only character will keep you there.”

Craig Groeschel, Pastor of
