Leadership Lesson 04: Facing the Future

Leadership Lesson 04: Facing the Future
Being forward looking is THE quality that most separates leaders from followers.

If there is one thing that is most often talked about, it is visionary leadership. Sometimes I think it is the MAIN thing that is said to define leaders. What I so respect about Kouzes and Posner, is they know great leadership requires many components. And in that larger vision, they give the rightful place of vision and seeing a better future.

The State of the Freshman Soul

Culture is Changing. And Changing FAST!

Faith is Fading. And for some, fading FAST!

Let us pray. Let us act. Let us trust God.

Reach Beyond Your Grasp

Robert Browning spoke of men, but I will borrow his words and speak of both men and women.  

A man's reach should exceed his grasp.

He spoke of having dreams, longings, desire, passion, vision . . . for something more. For something worthy. For something that matters. For the things that make a difference. For that which is beyond your ability, your gifts, your charisma, your time, your experience, your expertise . . . For when your vision is within those things - you are in your COMFORT ZONE.
