Leadership

16 May

I wanted to give this set of posts a post of their own, rather than including them in the below.  Len Hjalmarsen has written some fantastic stuff this week on leadership.  The Listening Silence, Leader As Listener, Leader As Listener II have been posted so far, but I think there may be more to come.  Through reading Len’s posts it has been highlighted to me the need for silence.  Silence to hear God, silence to stop speaking.  Another angle that has stirred in my mind is that leaders need to really listen to people within their church and outside of it.  How often do we stop and really listen to someone, really take in what they have to say without our own agenda, or our mind wondering.  When was it that you last really listened – to God or people?
