The Brave Ones

Leadercast is a one-day event that's broadcast live from Atlanta to more than 100,000 leaders around the globe. Join us at Milwaukee's exclusive broadcast location on May 8, 2015, and watch what we can collectively do together. It's a movement that is changing the way the world thinks about leadership by building leaders worth following.

Leaders worth following think and behave differently. These leaders choose to operate in ways that make the people around them better, stronger, and crazy enough to believe they can change the world. We have come to see seven core behaviors that characterize the essence of Leader Worth Following. Our event themes focus on one of these behaviors each year:

  • Bravery: possesses a posture of unrelenting boldness
  • Beyond You: leverages influences for the sake of others
  • Creativity: fosters an atmosphere that allows others to dream
  • Culture: architects the right conditions to win
  • Insight: Resolves to consistently do the wise thing
  • Simplicity: brings clarity to the complex
  • Vision: Moves towards a preferred future with little deviation

An essential behavior for any leader is the act of bravery. Bravery is not a moniker that can be bought… it cannot be self-appointed. Bravery is not attributed to everyone, but is reserved for those whose innovation in their industry cause them to stand out from the crowd, whose unyielding effort pushes their organizations into new territories, and whose boldness compels them to stand up for those less fortunate. These are The Brave Ones.

The Brave Ones have existed throughout history. Some are unforgettable icons, others names will never be remembered. They exist across all industries, societies, and at every level of leadership. Join us at Leadercast Live in 2015 as we explore The Brave Ones, and learn what it means to lead in such a way that create bold cultures, builds faithful employees, and produces high achievement.

The speaker line-up will be announced on Friday, September 5. Proceeds from the Leadercast will benefit the Center for Christian Leadership at Wisconsin Lutheran College.
