DOES YOUR STRENGTH EVER STINK?

The other day I dumped a forgotten bucketful of damp rags into the washer, and they smelled like crazy. The same can be true of our strengths. Left unchecked, they take on a foul odor.     One of my leadership strengths is vision. I readily see into the future and have lots of ideas about […]

GOD’S ONE-TWO PUNCH

Leaders are doers, movers, and shakers. But if that’s all they are, their efforts can amount to shadowboxing. Thankfully, God has a one-two punch that’s powerfully effective and worth learning.

REDEEMING YOUR TIME

For leaders, the verse – “redeeming the time, because the days are evil” – can spur us to burn midnight oil and candles at both ends. After all, time’s a wastin’ and there’s important work to be done! The second hand of our watch can be like a whip-cracking slave driver who shouts, “Hurry up, […]

STOP AND CELEBRATE

Words like stop, rest, enjoy, and celebrate aren’t found in the titles of many leadership seminars. But they’re found in the life of Jesus and they’re worth emulating, no matter how busy we are. Whether it’s a staff member’s birthday, a client’s salvation, or a successful event – let’s take the time to commemorate it, […]
