Leadership Summit Session 3 | Marc Kielburger

Mark Kielburger kicked off session 3 of the  Willow Creek Leadership Summit with a talk titled “Against Apathy.”

Mark is the Co-Founder, Free The Children; and the Co-Founder & Co-CEO, Me to We.

He is the author Me to We: Finding Meaning in a Material World.

Here are some highlights I grabbed from his talk:

  • Their organization began because as 12 year olds they wanted to change the world.
  • The question that was the deciding factor for him was: What type of legacy do you want to leave?
  • We sell hope and meaning.
  • To lead well, we sell meaning, gratitude, legacy and hope.
  • To have a healthy leadership team is to have communication and alignment.

What do you do for follow up to We Day?

  • 79% of kids who are part of the program voted in the last election.
  • Gift + issue = what young people can do to change the world.
  • To help kids care more about the world is to take them out of their comfort zones.

What will this next generation of leaders have to navigate?

  • 9 out of 10 young people (out of a billion on the world) live in developing nations.
  • This session made me very excited to read his book The World Needs Your Child

What was your biggest takeaway from this session?
