leadership

I’ve been thinking about leadership lately and while I know there are BOATLOADS of great resources, books, conferences, etc to help us with becoming better leaders, here are just a few brief, but helpful thoughts:

  • if you want a particular leadership position, act as a leader for that role before you ever get the title
  • leadership requires us to be continually growing and changing lest we become a stiffling lid
  • character is more substantial than any title
  • effective leadership requires constructive communicating: both listening & talking
  • the Jesus’ paradigm of leadership is service over superiority
  • if no one is following you, you’re merely taking a walk so enjoy the stroll ,)
  • fear is leadership poison
  • good leaders foster teamwork over competition
  • leaders look for ways to bring out the best in their team & to minimize the weaknesses
  • mistakes and failures for leaders aren’t permanent

Just a few quick thoughts on this happy Wed 🙂

Segunda

In Angola with Saving Moses, I met a 3yr old little boy who was severely malnourished. His mom, Lucia, is a beautiful, engaged and very concerned mom who has a beautiful little baby girl, Josephine, who is about 2months old – bright, cheery & zesty! Segunda is very emaciated but I have really high hopes that he’s going to make some rapid improvement & be released within the next few weeks. Please be praying for Segunda & his mom, Lucia!
