5 Ways to Make the Most of Leadercast Live


02 May 2017

Leadercast Live brings together leaders from all backgrounds and areas of expertise, wherever they may be in their leadership journey. It’s an incredible one-day leadership event with a speaker lineup featuring today’s most inspiring leaders – Andy Stanley, Donald Miller, Suzy Welch, Dr. Henry Cloud, Daniel Pink, Jess Ekstrom, Jim McKelvey, Molly Fletcher, and Tyler Perry. Not to mention a fun-loving host (Tripp Crosby), inspiring videos, original music, surprises from the stage, unique experiences throughout the day, and a high-energy vibe that lasts long after the event ends. 

Nearly 80,000 leaders will participate in the event at hundreds of Host Sites around the world, and every one of them will spend the day learning from the speakers about clarifying their individual purpose. We believe that having a clear purpose defines who we are, what we do, and empowers us to do it extraordinarily well. 

If you are not yet attending a Leadercast Live location, find one near you! We’re obviously biased, but we truly believe that this day will be one you won’t forget. 

If you already have your ticket, we’re so glad! In order to make sure you get the most out of the day, we wanted to give you some insider knowledge about the event. Here are five tips and tricks to help you enjoy Leadercast Live and see a lasting impact from the day: 

1. Download the app. 
Head to your mobile device’s app store, and search for Leadercast Journey. Download the Leadercast Journey app before you arrive at the event. This app has tons of great info about the speakers and the agenda and is a way to connect with your fellow attendees around the world. But also, it will be the place you go to participate in some special moments that will be happening throughout the day, so having it downloaded before you get there saves you a step! 

2. Don’t just wait in lines. 
There’s a good chance you’ll have a minute to wait in a line or two at the event, whether as you check in or while you’re looking for lunch or coffee. But don’t let those opportunities pass you by! Don’t retreat to your phone to check email, or stare at your feet, go ahead and chat the people around you. Treat that moment like the opportunity it is to meet somebody new and make connections. Here are a few great starter questions: “Which speaker are you most excited about?” or “How did you hear about Leadercast?” Those both give you some insight into who that person is and how you could be connected. 

3. Don’t forget the badge! 
Your badge may seem like something that just has to hang around your neck all day to make sure you can get in and out of the event. But – bonus – it actually has the event schedule on the back of it so you know when to be back inside after breaks and lunch so that you don’t miss a moment. 

4. Be all in. 
Part of the beauty of attending events and experiences is that they take you out of your day-to-day routine, and allow you the opportunity to be inspired, refreshed and recharged. We argue that the best way for that to happen is if you really commit to being there and being present. Avoid the temptation to check your email every hour, or feel like you should be somewhere else. We know how busy you are, but the experience can be life-changing if you commit to really being involved with the event. Participate in the fun crowd engagement moments; let your mind soak in what the speakers are saying without the filter what’s on your to-do list. We want the day to feel like a retreat and a challenge all at once, so that you leave rejuvenated and ready to hit the ground running. 

5. Reflect on the day. 
You’ll be given a journal at the event that has lots of white space for you to take notes. But we suggest that not only do you take notes, but you write yourself some questions. Each speaker is going to address some part of clarifying your purpose that will be thought provoking and may cause to do some personal reflection. We would caution you against trying to reflect heavily during the day, as having the whole picture of purpose may help you answer those questions better. Write the questions down after each speaker, and then take a moment at the end of the day – on your drive home, sitting at the dinner table, on the couch that night or all weekend – and revisit those questions. Try and do it with someone you trust and share your answers, as they could have insight into your purpose you may never have addressed. Don’t let the opportunity to answer those underlying questions about WHY you do what you do pass you by. 

We’ve heard from so many people over the years that Leadercast Live literally changed their life, and we want you to have the same experience. The speakers, the thought-provoking dialogue, the resources, and your fellow attendees help Leadercast Live leave a mark on your leadership journey.
