God’s Word And Your Leadership Style By George Warton

From the perspective of the Christ following leader there is an inherent coupling between a personal relationship with Christ and the ability to effectively execute as a leader in an organization.  The challenge is that there is little analysis that supports this seemingly intuitive assertion.  Most literature is anecdotal in nature demanding further study through…

Is God in Your Plans? By Mike Bomen

Just mention “long-range planning” around a group of church leaders, and you are sure to get a variety of reactions – deep sighs, shaking heads, uncomfortable chuckles … and maybe a few eyes that light up. Planning is one of the most notable areas where churches can experience gridlock in the intersection of secular and…

Detroit’s recent bankruptcy filing placed the issues many declining municipalities face directly in the public eye.

Missing God’s Intent By R. Scott Rodin

What do people get for all the toil and anxious striving with which they labor under the sun? All their days their work is grief and pain; even at night their minds do not rest. This too is meaningless. A person can do nothing better than to eat and drink and find satisfaction in their own…

Is Great the Enemy of Godly? By Mike Bonem

“Good is the enemy of great,” according to Jim Collins in the well-known opening line of Good to Great. Collins’s best-selling book has been a favorite guide for business leaders and has been equally influential for many leaders outside of business, including those in the church. I am one of those leaders who have been…

Saying “I do” to Workplace Peace By Wendi Dykes

Good leaders in the workplace are also expected to love, honor, cherish, and effectively communicate through crisis and conflict. It is no wonder conflict in organizations is so difficult to understand. When it comes right down to it, we may feel that we’re asked to adhere to similar levels of respect and commitment with those…

Are You Leading from the ‘Right-side’ Up? By Scott Rodin

The more I read, study and write about the steward leader, the more often I find myself scratching my head and saying, “really?” This is pretty radical stuff. And as such, the more we seek to embrace the call to be steward leaders fully, the more we will be considered rather strange people.  That’s because,…

Leading Gen Y and The Lessons Learned By Holly Moore

Several weeks ago, I watched our young staff at Growing Leaders — the nonprofit organization I help lead — host a significant event for educators. It was rewarding to see them embody our core values, serving with excellence. I smiled inside, reflecting on learning to lead them and modeling the way. Investing in the college…

Is Steward Leadership Different than Servant Leadership? By Dr. Kent R. Wilson

Although deeply rooted in Judeo-Christian heritage, the first formal application of servanthood to leadership appeared in 1970 with the writings of Robert Greenleaf. A Quaker by background, Greenleaf introduced the idea of servant leadership while a manager at AT&T. Greenleaf defined it as follows: “Who is the servant-leader? The servant-leader is the servant first. […]…
