“One of the most important functions of effective leadership is to master the power of perspective. Leaders require the ability to look at problems and determine their relative size and importance. “Is this a big problem, or a little problem?” “Of all of the problems facing our team, which is the most important, and which is the least?” One piece of leadership counsel I learned from a mentor years ago has helped me immensely in making these determinations.”
“Know yourself to bring your best self: Notice what energises you. Appreciate your greatest contribution to others. Know your core values by heart. You’re less than your best when you lose yourself to people pleasing.”
“Following God requires us to look in the mirror of God’s Word. That process can be what I call “joyously painful” – painful because we see ourselves as we really are, but joyous because there’s great relief when we turn to God and find Him gracious. So, here are some questions to ask in the mirror this week.”
