Monday Wake Up :: Best of #wcagls

This past week was another busy one. We were a satellite host for the Global Leadership Summit, which meant that I got to sit in on all of the sessions, and hear some pretty amazing speakers! It seemed like the overarching theme this year was leading with relationship (at least that’s the theme I drew out of it). Some of my favorite talks were given by Brene Brown on vulnerability, Vijay Govindarajan on innovation, Patrick Lencioni on job misery, and Bill Hybels on courage.

If you missed the Summit, you should definitely check out all of my notes here.
