Do you know the things that erode at being a good leader? Ron shares 7 things that might affect what kind of leader you are.
There are times I’m a better leader than other times.
Sometimes this is my fault. Other times the cause is unavoidable.
If we can begin to identify what interrupts the effectiveness of our leadership, we can become better leaders. I have personally experienced some things in my own life whigh weaken my leadership. One of my goals is to consistently find ways to guard against them.
It’s mid-January already, but don’t lose heart if you’re already a bit off track with some of your goals. You’ll enjoy this encouraging post by LifeWay Women if that describes you.
Once the excitement of New Year’s Day wears off, we lose sight of what we wanted. We’re not sure it’s worth the hassle after all. We’re overwhelmed. We’re tired and hurting. We’re not sure it was even possible to begin with.
Studies show only about 8% of people who make New Year’s resolutions actually stick with them. If you’re thinking that’s a depressing statistic, look at it this way: You could be part of the 8% because you don’t have to rely on your own strength in this journey.
Charisma is often described as a great leadership quality, but Eric shares how if it’s not stewarded well it can be dangerous.
“She is such a charismatic leader.”
Those phrases are often credited to leaders whom others line up to follow, who are seemingly able to alter any room they enter, and who are able to quickly rally people around a vision or direction. Charisma is often defined as “compelling attractiveness or charm that can inspire devotion in others.”
But that type of charisma can be dangerous. We have seen leaders known for their charisma lead people in horrific directions or crumble because their own inner health was woefully inconsistent with their external persona.
Your initial career path and dream job might not pan out the way you think, but the unplanned way your career unfolds might just be more exciting.
By one estimate, there’s an almost 75% chance that your current job is unrelated to your college major. You spend four years sweating for that BSc in accounting, only to end up as a field sales rep for a pharmaceutical company. You break your back for your BA in modern European history, and now you’re a fleet manager for a rental car company.
The season of life with little ones can be exhausting, but this post by Selena provides much-needed perspective on this season and how to keep Jesus at the center of your marriage.
We are in the season of having young children in our house: two sweet daughters, Adelaide (age 3) and Clementine (6 months). This, sometimes chaotic, new reality we find ourselves in is one we have waited and prayed for (yes, we prayed for chaos, somewhat unknowingly LOL). And as beautiful and wonderful as having little ones is, it has without a doubt affected and challenged our marriage in new ways.
