Leadership Inspiration: Some Favorite Memories

The Nonprofit Leadership Center hosts an annual Leadership Conference that brings thought leaders to our community each year. While serving on the NLC staff, I had the privilege of meeting many of the keynote speakers. Since leaving staff, I’ve enjoyed the conference as a participant. 

As NLC prepares to present their 10th annual conference, I found myself reminiscing about some of my favorites. Many of them I’d never heard of before the conference but now they are my go-to resources for leadership inspiration. 

I’ve compiled a list of my favorites and included links to some of their work: 

Jon Acuff / How to Be Kinder to Yourself in 1 Sentence

Andy Goodman / The Goodman Center (whose tagline is “where do-gooders do better”)

Shawn Achor / TEDx on Happiness

Travis Bradberry / The Secret to Team Performance and 5 Strategies to Achieve It Virtually

Sally Hogshead / The Little Recession Playbook

Simon T. Bailey / Spark Opportunity in the New Normal

Dan Pallotta / Social Innovation and Social Entrepreneurship

Maybe after the 10th Annual Conference on October 13, I’ll have a new favorite. I look forward to “seeing you” there and experiencing the new virtual format with you!
