Churches must be developing leaders, as we’ve talked about a few times this week on the blog. Last week, on the LifeWay Pastors blog, Tim Parsons shared four essentials for any leadership development program in the church. I think these are helpful.
“I made a mistake” and “I was wrong” are not even close to meaning the same thing. Leaders, especially church leaders, must know the difference between these two phrases, as Scott Cochrane explained this week on his blog.
This week, on the 5 Leadership Questions podcast, Barnabas and Todd talked with Pete Scazzero, author of The Emotionally Healthy Leader and other books about just that: emotional healthy leadership. It’s a good episode; give it a listen.
Passion and leadership go hand-in-hand. Leaders are more likely to be effective if they have a deep love and care for those the lead to accomplish the goals they’ve set. This week, Art Rainer shared 10 quotes on leadership and passion. I like this one from Amelia Earhart, “The most difficult thing is the decision to act, the rest is merely tenacity.”
“We need to carve out more time for ourselves if we want to remain focused and effective at work.” Helpful piece from Harvard Business Review on the two things killing your focus.
