WHEN WAS YOUR LAST PERSONAL RETREAT?

If you’re scratching your head trying to remember your last retreat, it was probably too long ago. Leaders in every capacity face challenges that require wisdom and deplete reserves. Regularly getting away for focused time with God is a Christ-like habit worth forming. I was five or six years into full-time ministry when the fabric […]

PAID RETREAT DAYS FOR YOUR STAFF

As relentless as leadership demands are, wise leaders follow Jesus’ example of “walking away from it all” to be with their Father. Whether it’s several days at the beginning or end of the year, a day each quarter, or something else – a rhythm of spiritual refueling and retooling is vital to healthy leadership. Let’s […]

Last week we talked about “Bookend Prayer” – the tendency for leaders to say a quick prayer on the front-end of a project and ask God to bless it at the end. It’s easy to fall into this trap – we’re busy, there’s tons to be done, and we want to see results fast. But […]

Have You Fallen into "Bookend Prayer"? (part 1 of 2)

We’re all guilty of it. In the fast-paced world of leadership, there’s plenty to do and not plenty of time. We know we need God’s wisdom, so we fire off a prayer and charge into our project without waiting for His response. When the task is complete, we pray again, asking God to bless our […]

5 Benefits Of Waiting For Agreement VS. Charging Ahead Solo

As leaders, we typically like goals and gas pedals. The problem is, while we’re good at getting someplace fast, it may not be the best destination and our team may not arrive with us.
