T.D. Jakes’ International Leadership Summit to Address Mental Health

March: 21-23: Annual International Leadership Summit hosted by T.D. Jakes will address why mental health, AI, technology and more pressing topics must be addressed to thrive

Mental health remains a national crisis for many Americans as levels of lifetime and current depression have reached an all-time high for Americans. T.D. Jakes’ International Leadership Summit, taking place March 21-23 at the Kay Bailey Hutchison Convention Center in Dallas, has always been at the forefront of addressing the most pressing issues, including mental health, and this year’s event is no exception.

Renowned leadership expert, psychologist and author Dr. Henry Cloud will serve as a featured speaker. Widely known as the co-author of the New York Times bestselling book Boundaries, Cloud has an extensive executive coaching background and experience as a leadership consultant and devotes the majority of his time to working with CEOs, leadership teams and executives to improve performance, leadership skills and culture. Cloud will address spiritual and business leaders in attendance, providing wisdom and encouragement on the topic, “Beyond Boundaries: Time to Unlock Your Leadership.”

Dr. Sandra Bond Chapman, chief director of the Center for BrainHealth at the University of Texas at Dallas and co-creator of the BrainHealth Project, champions efforts to democratize access to brain health strategies, transform brain care and elevate brain health with scientifically validated measurements. Life coach Kelly R. Thompson and Pastor Bobby Gibson will join Chapman in addressing mental health solutions during the session, “Headquarters— Mental Health has Multi-Dimensional Solutions.”

In a volatile culture, understanding and leveraging optimal timing is crucial for leaders, and no matter the industry or problem at hand, timing is everything. This year’s International Leadership Summit will focus on harnessing the power of timing. The event will help leaders and visionaries gain a competitive edge by equipping them with the wisdom to recognize the rhythms to effective leadership and innovation to capitalize on emerging opportunities. 

Since its founding in 2003, the annual International Leadership Summit has served as one of the most transformative leadership conferences available due to its unique position as a standard-bearer for values-based business learning and professional development. Featured conference topics in 2014 include AI and security, leadership dynamics, affordable housing in underserved communities and mental health.
