Here are some leadership and productivity blog posts I have come across recently.
“My friend Pastor Karl Faase is an experienced speaker/preacher both on TV and online. He has created a great short video that will help you when you or your church leaders communicate online.”
“Ever wonder why people seem to think you have endless amounts of time to do whatever they want you to do? You know those situations where they ask you to help out on a project, or attend one more meeting, or even give up your Saturday to help them move? I’m talking about the kind of conversations where you leave thinking, “Don’t they understand how much pressure I’m under?” Why is it that other people don’t value your time? You’d be surprised. It has a lot less to do with them and more to do with you. In fact, as I figured out the answers to that question, it really opened my eyes to why things were happening – and not happening – in my leadership.”
“I used to think that speaking in front of my webcam was a no-brainer. Turn it on and go. But I recently found out there is a right way and a wrong way to speak on camera. And most of us do it wrong. Speaking to someone through a camera is different from speaking in person. One of the biggest obstacles is connecting with the person on the other end of the video. But there are some things we can do to help build a bridge between speaker and viewer.”
“My life has been too GTD-efficient lately. I’ve been cramming commitments into every corner: as per usual, work overflows its allegedly part-time limits, both in terms of time and emotional capacity; mentoring and spiritual direction commitments have been higher than normal, even to the extent of me compromising my day off on a fairly regular basis; and I’ve been pushing myself to deal with my research backlog and get some of the stuff out for peer review. (Note to self: starting to GTD-administrate everything that moves is the surest sign your inner issues are about to overflow!) I’ve been absolutely owning the criticality and the admin. They are no match for my efficiency. But the creativity needs room to breathe. Creativity needs space and freedom. This poised waiting, an active receptivity, requires stillness. It demands quietness and trust.”
“In 2016, Harvard Business School Dean Nitin Nohria addressed the graduating class and spoke of three H’s: Hope, Humility, and Honour. These three qualities are reflected in leaders who make a difference. What stood out for me was the way he broke down humility into three types: Intellectual, Moral, and Personal. It gives one a multi-faceted picture of humility and how we might cultivate this quality more fully in our lives.”
