Leadership is a privilege

Bill Hybels, senior pastor at Willow Creek Church in South Barrington, IL opened the Global Leadership Summit yesterday by asking us if we had thanked God lately for the privilege of leading.

I have to admit, I never really thought of leadership as a privilege before. A responsibility. A calling. An obligation. Never really a privilege.

That statement flavored my perception of the rest of the day of incredible speakers, each imparting wisdom from their perspective on leadership.

Nearly saturated already, I approach day 2 feeling obligated to develop into a better leader by having my world rocked by these role models.

When have you considered leadership a privilege?
