This will be our final post as we head into the summer break. We’ll resume regular posting in August.
This past year, we explored a number of important themes for everyday leaders. Here’s a brief recap of some of the major ideas we covered.
Leadership Moments – David reminded us that great leaders aren’t debilitated by ‘crucible’ moments, but rather motivated to press forward and improve.
Leadership Postures – Dennis illustrated that harpooners aren’t the rowers, but set their sights from a steady and focused posture. Daniel suggested that leadership stems from incarnation and authenticity.
Learning Leaders – David challenged leaders to seek continual learning, highlighting the benefits of regular reading, networking, and self-improvement. Dennis noted the great lessons we can learn from kids!
Empowerment – Daniel observed that great leaders give up power, while Dennis showed that leadership presence, love and care for individuals brings significant transformation. David emphasized that true leadership arises when others follow without obligation.
Emotional Wholeness – Daniel shared the redemptive practices of acknowledging brokenness, while also pursuing emotional health and rhythms of Sabbath.
Communication – David outlined the importance of communication, stressing that the majority of our message comes not from what we say, but how we say it.
What themes would you find helpful in the coming months? Feel free to message us or post ideas in the comments below.
Thanks for engaging with us in these conversations. We are challenged and sharpened by interactions with you, whether virtual or face-to-face.
A prayer for you during these summer months:
Father, bless this community of leaders and servants. Allow them to see Your face in their everyday interactions. Let them represent You in all they say and do. May Your kingdom come and will be done through the work of their hands. Amen!
May God richly bless you.
David, Daniel & Dennis
