Longing to See the Savior

December 9, 2013


This week I will take a break from what I said I would blog about: leadership styles and how to maximize them. The reason?

Using all the clubs in your leadership bag

November 6, 2013


Conventional wisdom says that we are who we are and the type of personality and way that we lead cannot be improved much.  I’ve believed for years that I was basically an encourager and team builder but that conflict was something I avoided like the plague.  And while we have the personality that the Lord […]
