|Lessons from Leadercast- Brisbane|
Leadercast came to Brisbane yesterday due to strong perseverance of fellow John Maxwell Team Member Peter Lam.Leadercast is a one-day event broadcast live from Atlanta to over 100,000 leaders around the globe.It’s a movement that is changing the way the world thinks about leadership by building leaders worth following.It happens annually in May, and through the efforts of Peter, for the first time in Australia Leadercast was launched to a small but appreciative audience in Brisbane.
The first speaker was Andy Stanley, best-selling author of over 20 books, and who has over 2.3 million listeners world-wide. The theme for Leadercast 2013 was “Simply Lead” and Andy spoke about how to reduce and remove complexity from our leadership. We need a way to recenter, and to keep our leadership simple. We must find a way to keep the mist from becoming a fog.
Andy keeps his leadership simple with answering three questions.
- What are we doing?
- Why are we doing it?
- Where do I fit in?
The need is to answer these questions in one simple sentence.
So when complexity hits….What are we doing? Does it fit what we do?
So when complexity hits….Why are we doing it? What is the compelling reason we do it?
So when complexity hits…..Where do I fit in? What is my unique contribution?
Andy describes these questions as his “In case of Emergency: Break Glass” routine. His ability to withdraw and refocus. And in a world where complexity reigns….the greatest need for leaders is to fight complexity and associated confusion, and to maintain simplicity.
Leaders keep things simple.
