few…[a leadership thought]

Published on October 28th, 2014

What makes a person a leader? Often it is the fact that there are not many who “see what they see.” It’s not that others are incapable, it’s just that leaders have great vision clarity. As a leader… Very few have the same passion. Very few see what you see. Very few dream as much


I know less…and this is good

Published on August 30th, 2014

One of the leadership lessons I’ve been learning recently is that knowing less can be a good thing. I think we often assume that capable leaders know everything. It’s simply not true. As I’ve grown with the organization I serve, I know less. It’s fair to say the higher you move within your organization (team,

I need to initiate more. Perhaps you feel the same way. When we initiate, we move forward. We create. We ship something that may be less than perfect. All of this is good. It’s very good.

Published on May 31st, 2014

Imagine a workplace where people felt genuine care. Imagine a workplace where there was a deeper interest in people than the bottom line.

Published on May 13th, 2014

For the past eight months, I have worked with an advisory group. I must say, this group has been amazing!

How we manage “the gaps” will determine the success of that relationship. Successful relationships (personal or business) go to great lengths to believe the best about the other person when they

+ A team that finishes has a compelling purpose.   They have a compelling reason for existing. They have an answer to “why”. Why are we here? Why do we exist? Why are we doing this? Those are questions that can easily be answered…and answered with passion. + A team that finishes knows what they don’t


a leadership thought

Published on January 31st, 2014

One of the leadership challenges I’ve experienced recently deals with appropriate risk. There are times you must make decisions without having all of the information you want or even need. Do you stop and wait? Do you move forward with confidence that things will fall into place? Do you hide in a closet and hope


My friend Hercules

Published on October 4th, 2013

My friend Gus is like Hercules!  He’s been a great ministry partner, and I’m thankful for his encouragement, challenges, and insight.  October has been tagged as “pastor appreciation” month.  I have personally benefited from his pastoring in my own life, and I know that many others have as well.  I don’t believe he’s wrestled any
