Spiritual Leadership

One of the most important (and difficult) decisions a business leader has to make is how to exit his or her business. Yes, I’m talking about the business that you have built up over many years. The one that is home to your blood, sweat, and maybe even tears. And now the time has come to make that decision….Do you sell, merge, or transition to the next generation?

In May, I'll be facilitating a workshop - Millennials: How to Attract, Engage, and Retain Next-Gen Leaders - at C12 Group’s Leadership Conferencein Atlanta, GA. My co-facilitator, Brandon Schaefer, and I will address a topic that is weighing heavily on the minds of visionary CEOs, presidents, and business owners – How do we attract, equip and retain key leaders to fulfill our vision? How can you use your years of gaining skills, experience, and wisdom to impact the lives of people in your sphere of influence?

Jim Brangenberg recently interviewed me to learn more about my leadership guidebook, Millennials Matter. One of the questions he asked me was, “Danita, what is it that you want the world to know? My response? “I want the world to know that this task, mentoring the next generation of leaders, is a test of our generation.” Are you seeing Millennial leaders step up to take up leadership roles in our business, church, community and non-profit organizations?
