Chick-fil-A Leadercast is a one-day leadership development event that is broadcast to locations around the world. The annual event, hosted by Chick-fil-A and Giant Impact, features a lineup of successful and inspirational speakers - all world-renowned leaders who share lessons to challenge, inspire and encourage you.
On July 18, 2012, for the third consecutive year, the Department of Human Resources and the Organization Development and Training team brought this event to managers and supervisors at JHH/JHHSC. This year's theme was "The choices you make define the leader you become" and speakers included Soledad O'Brien, Tim Tebow, Patrick Lencioni, Marcus Buckingham, John Maxwell and many more.

What your colleagues are saying
For the last two years I’ve enjoyed the Leadercast series. While all the speakers have been outstanding, I have especially liked the leadership topics presented by John Maxwell. He speaks about connecting with people in order to influence them. Leadership is always about others and by understanding his 5 levels of leadership, it’s easier to see that you can be on different levels with different employees and yet function as a highly effective team.

When I received the invitation to the Chick-Fil-A “Voices of Change” Leadercast event, my first thought was ... OK, I know there are changes happening all around us here at Johns Hopkins. So learning how to be a better “voice of change” would probably be good for me. So I agreed to attend.
Well I had no idea what was in store for me. The day-long event was motivating, inspiring, informative, and fun. Not only did I enjoy the event immensely, I agreed to participate on a committee for next year’s event because I didn’t want a single leader in IT@JH to miss having the opportunity to attend this. So what inspired me from this event? John Maxwell.
John spoke about the 5 levels of Leadership. I wanted to know what level I felt I was on and what I needed to do to get to the next level. John provided a road map of understanding. From his presentation I seemed to be on the “production” level of leadership (level 3) characterized as “producing by example”. I wanted to be on the “people” level (level 4) characterized by producing through the strengths of others (i.e., my team). The best take-away from John’s presentation to me was this:
Leaders create momentum – momentum creates change – and momentum will take care of 80% of the problems you encounter along the way.
Every day I try to keep the momentum going. But I realize I still have a long way to go. I’m still learning!
