Houston Leadership Development Hosted by the Outreach Center of West Houston
On June 14, 2019 the Outreach Center of West Houston, a local 501-3(c), hosted a flex cast of the largest one-day leadership event in the world, Leadercast 2019. Over 100 local business and community leaders attended the event at the venue of Memorial Drive Presbyterian Church. Participants thanked the Center for hosting such an inspiring and motivating event.
Jon Peters, local Houstonian, and author of When Life Grabs You by the Baseballs, was the keynote speaker. Jon is known to the local community for being the United States’ record holder for the most consecutive wins (fifty-three) by a high school pitcher in 1989. He was also the first high school baseball player to be featured on the cover of Sports Illustrated. After being accepted at Texas A&M on a baseball scholarship, Jon had to give up his lifelong dream of professional baseball due to four arm surgeries in his college career. At Leadercast he shared a universal message: “no matter what dreams you’ve lost or what demons you’re battling, you too can find that same hope, happiness, and purpose.”
Committed to leading and building healthy team leaders in Houston, the Outreach Center has hosted this annual event for the past 7 years.
Leadercast speaker takeaways included:
“If you could get all the people in an organization rowing in the same direction, you could dominate any industry, in any market, against any competition, at any time.” -Patrick Lencioni
“When people don’t want the best for you, they are not the best for you.” -Gayle King
“Remember, being valued and being rewarded are two different things.” -Carla Harris
Raffle winners loved their prizes too!
