With Your Help, We’re Asking, What’s the BEST that Can Happen?


Because of the GLS

Michelle Poler

At The Global Leadership Summit last August, Michelle Poler asked this question about facing a fear or a new opportunity: What’s the BEST that can happen?

What a compelling, yet simple question. And it applies to almost every area of your life.

Instead of asking, “What’s the worst that could happen?” and going down a train of thought of doom, you can switch your mindset toward the best possible outcome, reframing your vision for the future.

At the Global Leadership Network, we are passionate about the positive difference you make through your influence. It is this passion that drives us forward on a mission to ignite transformation globally. It is what keeps us asking the question, “What is the BEST that can happen?”

We invite you into our vision for the future!

With your help, the BEST can happen as people become equipped and encouraged in their leadership to make a positive difference in their communities, churches, businesses, schools, hospitals, prisons, governments, nonprofits and more!

“God called us as a church community to ignite transformation for not just the girls we saw around us, but for girls whose names we would not know. We knew if we did something to end child marriage, it would ignite transformation not just in our generation, but for generations to come.” - Flood Church founder, Sean Kampondni, Malawi  

What happens when people experience the impact of The Global Leadership Summit and our high-impact year-round leadership events?

    • They are reminded their leadership matters and they have influence.
    • They are called out in the best way with fresh motivation and insight.
    • They are stretched in areas they want to improve in order to thrive.
    • They rediscover their sense of purpose.
    • They leave with a challenge to go out and make courageous, valuable decisions that ultimately create the positive change they long to see become a reality.

As you consider your donation to the Global Leadership Network today ask yourself, What’s the BEST that could happen?
