The Common Challenge of Every Leader It may seem presumptuous to propose that there is one challenge to leadership that is so universally experienced that it is consistently at the top of the list of reasons leaders struggle and fail. But a recent experience has moved me deeply and convinced me that there may be…

Leadership failure or success. What path are you on?

The Path to Leadership Failure By R. Scott Rodin

Time to Assess if You are on the Path to Leadership Failure Every day we hear stories of leadership failure. Some are national in scope, some regional, some in our own communities. Whether it’s a moral failing, an ethical compromise, poor decision making or just pure burnout, it’s likely each of you reading this blog…

A Greater Good for Global Leaders

The Outcome Conference Global Digital Experience 2022: A Greater Good There is often a greater good that comes from some of the hardest of times.

Our Letter of Recommendation By Dr. Bob Snyder

What Letter of Recommendation Does Your Life Communicate? Letters of recommendation are powerful tools in advocacy. They serve as a witness to who I am and the work I have done.

What's diving your God Driven-ness?

The Myth of God Driven-ness By R. Scott Rodin

So what is driving your driven-ness? Perhaps today it’s time to assess your God driven-ness and how you approach what you believe you are called to do. 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…

“How do I not become a hallow soul? Never lose the wonder." Margaret Feingberg

Wonder By Alec Hill

We all need wonder in our lives. Wonder makes us gasp, causing us to say, “oh my.” It may be experienced while walking on a shoreline, watching a newborn enter the world, or listening to incredible music.   As ministry leaders, we sense wonder when our mission is fleshed out before our eyes.
