True leadership is continually learning and investing in yourself and your development. I was privileged to attend the EntreLeadership Summit 2022, my seventh time since 2016. This world-class experience has had a significant impact on my leadership journey. It’s also been an inspiration in my pursuit of servant leadership every day.
In late May I attended the EntreLeadership Summit 2022 in Nashville. EntreLeadership is a training program that fuses the passion of entrepreneurs and the character of leaders to win in business. I have been attending Summit since 2016. Of course, I very much appreciate my awesome team members, who always hold down the fort, so I am able to work on myself.
The world-class experience has had a significant impact on my leadership journey. I’ve been particularly grateful to learn from phenomenal leaders who possess exceptional leadership qualities and genuine humility.
The EntreLeadership Summit 2022 speakers inspired me to focus on my pursuit of servant leadership every day. For many entrepreneurs, the thought of their work is being the best at what they do. But it’s more important to remember the real purpose of work comes from serving others.
