Most of the staff and several other leaders at the church are attending the Willow Creek Leadership Summit (at a satellite site) this week. Day one was fairly good, the highlight was clearly Marcus Buckingham. I've read some of his writing and heard him speak before and it's always informative and entertaining. I wonder how much more effective the church would be if we spent most of our time focused on our strengths rather than having people working in areas of weakness. Butch Witmire from Granger has a great summary of the presentation.
Early in the day Nancy Beach made a comment about wanting to just process the opening talk by Hybels. I agree completely. I could have had only the first and last sessions.
