It’s hard to stay on top of the many leadership and productivity articles published each week. To help you become the best leader possible, here are three articles I found helpful this week:
“One of the most important things I’ve discovered in my decades as an leadership coach is the importance of a leader’s presence. It’s one of those things that’s easy to recognize but hard to define, and that may be why so many leaders neglect it. “I’m just here to do a job,” is a common response when I bring up the issue with my clients. But your presence as a leader is just as important as your accomplishments.”
“No leader sets out to create an unhealthy culture, but I know some keys to creating one. There are things which injure the health of any team. I am not sure we do them with ill intentions. Sometimes we simply are doing what we know to do or what has been modeled for us by other leaders. But if we aren’t careful, we unwillingly create an unhealthy culture. Perhaps understanding how it develops can help.”
“I believe we’ve seen a lot of progress in the last couple of decades when it comes to how the church approaches mental health. But we also have a long way to go. I long to see the church keep getting better in this area and wanted to offer some suggestions for pastors and church leaders about how we can intentionally grow in this area.”
Thanks for reading with me. If you discovered an enlightening, must-read leadership or productivity link recently, drop me a line and share!
