The Chick-Fil-A Leadercast is coming up on May 6th (next Friday.) I was fortunate enough to attend this event last year and it absolutely blew my mind. That said, I wanted to tell you all about it

Let’s see what a humble leader really looks like. When we talk in terms of sheer historical impact, there’s little argument that Jesus Christ was the most effective leader of all time.
One of the folks in the chat loosely defined humility as a “tool” to be “used.” In essence, humility is a sort of a crescent wrench in the leader’s proverbial toolbox. I didn’t like this definition. I didn’t like it one bit.
As leaders, we get to fill the role of counselor in a lot of people’s lives. For good or bad, we have the honor and responsibility of providing these people with advice.
You may not be that bad at giving advice, but odds are that you’ve fallen in with at least one of these mis-steps before.
You want to develop better leadership skills, but there’s so much that goes into building that skill set. Today I want to give you a break by asking you to focus on just one thing.
I remember the worst experience I ever had with a leader. He was a perpetual grump; a man of absolutely no joy. He grumbled around the shop and openly ridiculed the folks under his charge. Even when we succeeded, he had nothing positive to bring to the table. joy – a feeling of great pleasure […]
“I believe” is a difficult and scary way to start a sentence. It means that you’re about to say something extremely important.
Don’t just stay passionate on the inside. Live a life in outward expression of your inward conviction. Let people know who you are and exactly what you stand for. In short, live your life boldly.
I’m immeasurably thankful for good friends, crazy ideas, sanctified stubbornness, and God’s grace today.
