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:
“A healthy culture can help turbocharge your vision and make progress toward the calling that God has for your church. On the other hand, an unhealthy team culture will actually erode your vision and derail your strategy.”
“What you believe as a leader will ultimately determine who you become as a leader. Unfortunately, the beliefs that many leaders cling to are not only outdated, but they can severely limit the growth potential of a leader who subscribes to these ideas. Here are five of the most commonly held leadership beliefs that could potentially be hurting your leadership.”
“Most people at some point in their career will experience a “bad boss”. I started working nearly full-time at the age of 12. I would ride my bike to a grocery store every afternoon after school. It was a necessity in our home if I wanted the cool clothes and eventually the cool car. (I wish I still had that first car, by the way.) Along the way, I’ve had so many different bosses. Some good. And some not so good. In fact, for years, I didn’t even know the term leader. I only knew the term boss. I cringe at the term now. Part of that reason is the number of bad bosses I have either personally had or the ones I have encountered through coaching people. The term indicates everything to me that leadership is not supposed to be. I don’t want to be a boss. I want to be a leader.”
