Hundreds attend Leadercast at Nacogdoches' First Baptist Church

NACOGDOCHES, TX (KTRE) -

Advice from some of the top leaders of our country was shared today in Nacogdoches at the Chick-fil-A Leadercast.

The annual event is a fundraiser for the Christian Women's and Men's Job Corps. East Texas News found out that it's also providing continuing education toward successful leadership.

A live broadcast, originating from Atlanta, Georgia brought nine top speakers on leadership to Nacogdoches.

"And your people need to know that you do not feel like you got to be the source of everything, but that you take them arm in arm and courageously go into the future and say we can figure this out," said Dr. Henry Cloud, an author and leadership counselor.

Nacogdoches is just one of hundreds of locations around the world where business and government leaders and even future leaders gathered for leadership training. 

"We can be a leader, but we don't always inspire," said Wendy Buchanan, a business leader and sponsor. "So it's good to have something and someone who just helps you focus on the skills you should be focusing on and the positive aspects of leadership."

"We have to absolutely go back to the basics because people don't care how much you know until they know how much you care about them," said Tyler County Judge Jacques Blanchette.

Last year the Leadercast, with the help of generous sponsors, raised over $17,000 for the Women's and Men's Job Corps. Its executive director says it takes the whole community to successfully support the corps' mission to offer a hand up.

"We try to instill in them to just function in their lives with a high level of integrity and a high work ethic and just to learn how to incorporate god's word in every aspect of their life," said Helen Stevenson, the executive director of the Women's and Men's Job Corps.

There are lots of take-away points from the all day event. The founder John C. Maxwell advised to multiply your strengths by developing them.

Hundreds of guests are today armed with the material to reach the goal. Noted leaders who spoke today were 2012 Olympic gold medalist Sanya Richards-Ross and former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice.
