Session 5 Snippets from my former boss and Pastor Craig Groeschel.  Craig really captivated the audience… Great talk, great information and tons of impactful one-liners.

  • I would not be here if it wasn’t for men and women who went before me and mentored me.
  • If you’re a speaker and u forget where you are… just repeat what you just said and walk back to your notes.
  • Don’t resent, fear or judge the next generation… believe in them.
  • God values maturity… If you’re not dead, you’re not done.
  • If you delegate tasks, you create followers… Delegate authority and you create leaders.
  • Embrace the season that you’re in… don’t try to be something that you’re not.
  • Authenticity trumps cool every time.
  • Younger generation: You need those that have gone before you more than you know.
  • When I was a kid, you actually had to win to get a trophy.
  • Honor publicly results in influence privately.
  • When we learn to honor God for who He is, we will more naturally be able to honor those around us.
  • Respect is earned… honor is given.
  • Create on-going feedback loops from those who are older and younger.
  • Create specific mentoring moments. (plan, not by accident, be intentional)
  • Don’t try to copy what those you are asking to mentor do… learn how they think.
  • Create opportunities for significant leadership development.
  • To those that have gone before me… I honor you with all of my heart.
  • Younger generation, I believe in u – the most cause-driven mission-minded generation in history.
Excellent inspiring talk for church and business leaders.
Share your thoughts on any of the snippets above.

    My two favorites:
    Don’t try to copy what those you are asking to mentor do… learn how they think. If you delegate tasks, you create followers… Delegate authority and you create leaders.
