Leadership Network (LN) is an great organization, and they are doing more amazing stuff this year. Some of Dave Travis's comments on their Learnings Blog have hinted to their 2nd big online conference, called Aha! Fresh Voices, New Ideas that will happen on March 3rd, 2010. Dave mentioned that the official announcement and details will be made early this week by Todd Rhodes. (Aha! Link is now up.)

What can you expect?  The same incredible format as their first online conference The NINES - a totally free online experience, with a mix of some great folks you already know as well as some new faces. Look for fewer total participants (40) and shorter clips at 6 minutes each. Contributers were asked to focus on a key learning and "aha!" moment in their life and ministry.  

Where did the name originate?  About ten months ago, I worked with LN's team to distill down their six values. They named this conference after their second value. Here is the list:

  1. What’s next? - We explore what could be.

  2. Aha! - We create environments for collaborative discovery.          

  3.  Positive deviants*  We work with the exceptional.           

  4.  Generous relationships. We invest in the success of others.

  5.  Results, results, results… We pursue BIG impact.

  6.  JESUS  We strive to model Jesus in everything we do.

The mission of Leadership Network is to accelerate the impact of 100X leaders. See a fun little interview on LN- Ben Arment with Dave Travis.
