Spartanburg SC Live 2 Lead was a success this year bringing in over 120 people to First Baptist of Boiling Springs to listen to the teaching of world-renown leadership experts Simon Sinek, John Maxwell, Liz Wiseman, and Dan Cathy. In a survey we sent out after the event, 100% of the respondents said they were either “extremely likely to return” or “definitely return” in 2017. Simon kicked off the first seminar with a thorough and passionate call to leaders to exercise empathy in their managing style. He discussed the challenges of technology and social media particularly as it relates to the millennial age group.
John Maxwell continued the power packed day with his exposition on how to commit to daily growth. During the break, we heard from several people who wanted to start implementing action steps towards their goals and aspirations. How cool?! What a refreshing moment to look around and see a room full of community leaders who were committed to their personal growth and the betterment of Boiling Springs and Spartanburg SC.
