Here’s a round up of leadership and productivity posts for this week, particularly from the the Christian blogs worth reading that I could find. You’ll also find a summary of this week’s content on www.equippinghispeople.com.
Here are the top five posts to read on leadership or productivity from the Christian blogs worth reading that I’ve read this past week:
The Salvation Army (at least in the “West”) appears to continue to be going through a crisis of conscience as far as membership is concerned, and particularly the soldier’s covenant, so I am grateful to Steve for this helpful contribution to our debate from another church’s perspective.
One of the most important things we can do as leaders is to take time to reflect, or as Dan puts it, “The primary responsibility of a leader is to think”. But some of our thoughts actually harm our leadership. We need to be thinking in our thinking!
The session (cohort) of Salvation Army officers I was commissioned and ordained with are called Joyful Intercessors, so I was drawn to this article, in which David outlines how praying for someone who has offended you in some way is the most powerful way to deal with the issue.
Actions speak louder than words. Asking people how you can help them brings influence. Lolly shows why.
Following on from Lolly’s post in many ways is this one from Carey Nieuwhof, a Christian blog worth reading. They key is to value both results from and relationships with your team.
