Spent 30 minutes with a small group from Xcel Darlington early yesterday morning, talking leadership and starting to open up the topic. Loved it, haven’t done that for so long. Hope they found it worth while.
A jammed 30 mins full of the following…
…Exodus 18: Moses & the qualities of leaders, the way to increase your leadership capacity, levels of leading 10, 50’s, 100’s & 1000’s
…discussed some great questions: what makes a leader, how do you become a leader, are leaders born or made, why are they important?
…expectations v privileges: the willingness to do what it takes to be a leader and not just enjoy the reserved parking
…be the best you can be at the moment: stop looking ahead at the positions and be great at what you do now
…invest in yourself: become a learning machine, recommended read: You Don’t Need a Title to Be a Leader by Mark Sanborn. Get a copy here.
Next time round we will look at Rights v Responsibilities, amongst other stuff. All with the purpose of increasing our capacity, becoming the leaders God wants us to become, to grow Xcel Church Darlington.
