|Constant Learning is a Must for Leaders|
You might think that, after all these years, I’d know more about leadership than I do. But, when I attended Dr. Mark Rutland’s National Institute on Christian Leadership a couple of years ago, I found it very beneficial in developing my own leadership skills.
Not only is Dr. Rutland a great storyteller and very entertaining, but he also helped me to connect the dots in a way that helped me to solve some huge issues I faced in our organization. The course works at a high level—so much so that for those who choose to continue their education toward a seminary degree, it counts for the first of three years of that degree. It’s been so well received that it’s been expanded to include duplicate courses in Dallas and Atlanta.

What do you want to do about … ? When should we … ? How do you want … ?Volley after volley of questions, small and consequential, lobbed into my lap like mortars, became at times excruciatingly oppressive. This was not entirely new to me. I had first experienced some of the challenges of decision making as a leader in sports, first as a player, then as a ...
