Stack: Church leadership: we have much to learn

1 — This is so true in church leadership as well. So many staff members as well as church members will tell me, "I'm not a leader". But that is why church fails, no one feels a part of the grand performance. Or they pin it all on one guy, me.
 

“Triple crown leadership is a group performance, a job for leaders throughout the organization, even those who do not think of themselves as leaders.”

2 — We, as church leaders, have been taught to toe the party line, to not stick our heads up, and do walk in step with the past. Those methods don't work anymore because they aren't making people like that anymore. And yet our "market" if you will is huge. 67% of the country does not believe in Jesus Christ.
 

“Today, we do not need more of the same old approaches. We need a quest that raises our sights, summons our passions, unleashes our talents, and calls our better angels to the post.”

3 — We don't like asking questions as church leaders because we are supposed to have all the answers.
 

There are many ways to generate new input, but the most effective is to learn to ask the kinds of questions that can lead you to a real discovery.
This is true both of the kinds of questions you ask other people, and the ones you pose to yourself.
