3 Reasons To Attend L3 One Day

We are hosting our third L3 One Day Conference on Thursday, February 29th, 2024, in Pittsburgh at North Way Community Church’s Sewickley Campus! The conference is sponsored by our friends at Center for Serving Leadership.

In addition to our keynote speakers, we will have breakout sessions and several other speakers giving shorter talks. We will also have extended times of networking.

Our Vision

Our vision for the conference is to host an annual gathering of leaders to help you grow your leadership, your network, and your future.

I believe that you are one idea and one connection away from changing your destiny. That is why we believe it is so important for you to be in the room at conferences like this. When you’re not in the room, you have no idea on the ideas and connections that you missed out on.

You are one idea and one connection away from changing your destiny.

Why should you attend L3 One Day?

Reason #1: To Grow Your Leadership

We believe that everyone wins when a leader gets better and everyone loses when they don’t.

Everyone wins when a leader gets better and everyone loses when they don’t.

If you’re a leader, you’re not going to get better by accident. You have to intentionally grow. As a leader, you can grow by the mentors you have, the people you surround yourself with, the books you read and the podcasts you listen to, the experiences you have, and by putting yourself in rooms with other leaders.

You grow by putting yourself in rooms with other leaders.

Annual conferences should be part of your personal development plan.

I’ve been attending leadership conferences since I was 18 years old. They have played a significant role in my growth and development. I can point to specific talks I heard, ideas I received, and people that I met at each conference that helped shape my leadership journey. Make sure that leadership conferences are a part of your annual development plan.

It is also a way to invest in the growth of your team.

A huge part of growing your leadership is growing your team. Don’t ever have a leadership experience without your team unless it’s impossible to bring them.

Bringing your team with you will give you an opportunity to bond together outside of the office, it shows your team that you value them, and it will help them grow.

Don’t have a team? Think of a few younger leaders that you mentor that could benefit from attending and bring them with you.

Reason #2: To Grow Your Network

As I mentioned earlier, you are one relationship away from changing your destiny. Your entire ROI of getting in the room may not be from the talks but from a conversation you have or a leader that you meet.

Gerald Brooks once said, “Sometimes it’s not the lesson you need, but the life of a leader.”

If you look back over your leadership journey, I’m willing to be that the leaders you’ve met and had come into your life have helped you grow and develop more business than the content you’ve consumed.

Reason #3: To Grow Your Future

John Maxwell once said, “Growth is the only guarantee that tomorrow is going to get better.” In other words, if you want your future to be better, then you need to focus on growing yourself today.

You have no idea what will be set into motion in your life through a conference:

  • It may be an idea that changes the trajectory of your life.
  • It may be the connection that leads to a mentoring relationship or a business partnership.
  • It may be finally getting the injection of courage you need to go after your dreams.
  • It may lead to your next promotion or job.
  • It could be the bonding experience that you needed with your team.

Here is what I know: When you don’t put yourself in the room, you don’t know what you missed out on. It could have been anything I just mentioned.
