Friday Mornings and Leadership

The 21 Most Powerful Minutes

I switched over from Tumblr to make the whole commenting process easier. Matt Dabbs (see the blogroll), recommended this platform, and he is a pretty smart guy, so I took him up on it.

This morning, about 18 of us met at 6:00 a.m. at the church building. It was a group of guys that are going to meet every Friday morning to eat some donuts and read through The 21 Most Powerful Moments in a Leader’s Day by John Maxwell. If you have ever read Maxwell’s 21 Irrefutable Laws of Leadership, then you have seen the material. In the book we are using, he takes the laws and provides Biblical examples for each one. There isn’t much to our format – just your basic reading, watching, and discussion – but it provides a great time to reflect on how we are leading. Any congregation, family, business etc. needs strong leadership in order to reach its potential. When the leaders grow, the church grows, and we are trying to grow.  

The material has been around a while, and it is good. We have some video presentation of it that we watch and we have some great discussion. Those things are great, but they aren’t what excites me the most, though. What was really neat to see was how many of our men took the task of improving as a leader seriously enough to get up early and participate. I am really looking forward to seeing how God will help us develop through this process! Any other ideas that have been helpful in developing leadership?
