Have you ever been told that you spend too much time pouring into other people while neglecting yourself? It is true that you must value your own personal growth before your leadership before others. This is not because you are more important than other people, but in order to lead, this is a prerequisite. Your leadership ability directly correlates to what you are doing to make sure that you are growing personally. When you are placed into a position of leadership, how will you lead if you have not grown personally as a leader?
Maybe you are the type of person who likes to build things, but you are also the type of person who does not like instructions. As you put that bookshelf or that desk together, you are capping your ability to build it in an efficient manner because you are not educating yourself with the correct process. In order to lead with effectiveness and intentionality, it is important that you do not adopt the mindset that you already know everything. Establishing yourself on the grounds of a growth mindset will allow you to grow in your leadership and expand your impact.
With that said, understanding that you must continually grow in your personal leadership ability is only the first step. Your next task is to come up with a practical approach in order to do so. In an environment, such as your church, where excellence stems from great leadership, the pressure can start to feel overwhelming.
There will be generational differences, challenges within your team, and discouraging outcomes from time to time. In times like these, it is imperative that you understand how to strengthen your leadership in spite of an ever-changing environment such as the church. This video will provide you with practical ways that you can boost your leadership ability with intentionality.
