The Most Important Task of a Leader

One of the most important tasks of any leader is investing in other leaders. The greatest limit to our impact and effectiveness is our human limitations. We can only be at one place at a time and we will eventually die. Our leadership, however, can expand far beyond our human limitations in the people in whom we encourage, train, and equip to be leaders. This is why it is my great privilege to be a part of the Michigan Youth Leadership Summit taking place on Saturday April 17th at the Oakland County Community College Orchard Ridge Campus. The event will include Gov. Jennifer Granholm, Wayne County Prosecutor Kym Worthy, Oakland County Exec. L. Brooks Patterson, members of the Detroit Tigers and Red Wings, and many other leaders from South-Eastern Michigan. We will take this time to encourage and equip the teenagers of South-Eastern Michigan to be the leaders that will make an impact long into the future and help revitalize this region. Representatives from the United Way, Detroit Rescue Mission, American Red Cross, and other will also be there to show the attendees how they can make an impact today.
