Weekend Words of Wisdom #5

The Value of Self-awareness Leading people is complex, invigorating, and unusually humbling. For this reason it is vital that a leader clearly understand his or her strengths, as well as areas for improvement. Here are five questions I have found especially helpful in my own developmental journey: Am I truly committed to lifelong learning? Do…

12 Benefits of Social Media

What's Your Gift to a Next Generation Leader?

  By Andrea Buczynski Every leader has something to offer the next generation. Two different colleagues come to mind, neither of who would say they develop others.

Embracing the High Calling If you are a leader who is serious about making a difference in your role, I suggest you consider the why of the responsibility you have been privileged to engage in. As a believer, you are gifted with a task that is too noble to describe merely as a profession. You…

Not Negotiable

by Rick Dunham I’m constantly amazed at how quickly those in leadership positions are willing to compromise in areas that should not be up for negotiation. A CEO willing to compromise the effectiveness of her organization by accommodating mediocrity A manager willing to compromise the team to placate a malcontent Board members willing to compromise the mission of…

Overcoming the Crisis of Character

By R. Bruce Bickel We’re at a crisis in our culture. It’s not a crisis of security, although that’s of prime importance to our citizenry. And it’s not a crisis of terrorism, although that’s an issue of concern for our world. The crisis that concerns me most is one that’s far more dangerous because it’s so subtle. It’s a…
