Vision. Execution. Results. Innovation. Effectiveness. Significance. Next Level. Change Maker. Influencer.
These are the words and ideas that typically identify a leadership conference. It’s all about getting bigger, doing better, going faster, and being famous.
Be more. Do more. Have more.
What if there was leadership conference that took a very different approach? What if there was leadership conference that focused not on being more and doing more, but on being less?
Just for fun, I would like to suggest a LESS leadership conference.
The LESS conference main sessions will cover these powerful leadership topics:
Scars: How to get them and how to show them.
Selflessness: It’s not about you.
Submission: How to submit your leadership will and leadership desires.
Surrender: How to surrender and not to get your way as a leader.
Suffer: How to suffer for others for the sake of others.
Sacrifice: The principles and methods of daily denial and cross-carrying for leaders.
Servant: Moving from servant leader to simple servant.
Someone”less”: How to become a “someoneless” leader in a world of somebodies.
Slave: The current trends in yoke wearing and obedience development.
Scum: Pro-tips on embracing revilement, persecution, and slander as a leader.
Like any great leadership conference, there would be labs and breakouts on leadership issues. Some of the LESS conference breakouts and labs would include:
There is only one King, and it ain’t you!
How to stop building your own.
Effective strategies for losing, not insisting or getting your way, and how to deny your leader-self.
It’s not what you think. It really is about being last.
This new approach will not garner you any fame, recognition, or earthly rewards!
A workshop on learning methods and techniques for not being all powerful, all knowing, and everywhere at once.
Learn habits to crucify your pride and arrogance daily.
Emptying Self For Others
Discover the tools and tips for pouring yourself out for others without any recognition or personal glory.
Slowness and & Silence
Habits of being still and quiet. You won’t get much done in this one!
The LESS conference, it might not be popular or a big hit with leaders, but then again, that is the lesson.
