A good leader does more than just scale the next mountain. Leaders must cast a compelling vision so others can see it too. To assist leaders in these efforts, Baylor University is bringing the 2006 Willow Creek Leadership Summit to campus for the second consecutive year.

The conference, which is open to the public, will be held via satellite Aug. 10-12 in Waco Hall on the Baylor campus. Last year, more than 450 community and university leaders were challenged and inspired at the Baylor location.

Anyone who attends the Baylor location will receive the special Baylor reduced host rate of $65, which is good through July 14. After that date, registration will be $95. The national rate is $255.

Those in attendance will hear from world-class leadership communicators like Bono, lead singer of the rock band U2, and Jim Collins, author of Good to Great. Collins will address questions that arise when business management topics are applied in ministry settings. Bono, who will appear via videocast, will discuss his leadership role in mobilizing resources for the fight against poverty and the AIDS pandemic.

Attendees also will identify different cycles of leadership development and the unique demands they place on a leader. Additionally, participants will find out how to decrease their stress, communicate better and increase their productivity at work while learning to inspire others.

"The summit provides valuable information, new tools and a fresh perspective on leadership for use in our community," said Paul Carr, producer for the campus location and Baylor's interim vice president for marketing and communications. "Last year was so inspiring and such a success that we wanted to bring the conference back. Everyone has a position of leadership whether in their family, church, workplace or organization, and will hear things at this conference that will improve the quality of their leadership."
