Growing as a Leader

February 22, 2010 — 1 Comment

I am finally back!  After a weeks of not being around in my social networking world I am finally back and ready to start blogging and getting connected again.  I have just recently transistioned to a new position as Senior Minister at a church in Indianapolis.  As I am getting things in order and getting my life functioning again with some structure I am revisiting some leadership principles that I have not been doing for awhile.  The one that I am going to share with you is my Personal Leadership Growth Plan.

In what ways are you growing as a leader?  Many of us take time to study our Bibles and learn from God on a regular basis.  However, we neglect to learn and grow as individual leaders.  If we want to be better at what we do we have to find ways to continue growing on a daily basis.  I am going to share with you my Personal Leadership Growth Plan.

- Read for 30 Minutes
- Study the Seven Habits material by Stephen Covey

- Read for 30 minutes
- this is meeting day

- Read for 30 Minutes
- The Effective Executive by Peter Drucker

- Day off

- Read for 30 minutes
- Video training (there are all kinds of things you can watch her that will help you grow)

This is my simple weekly plan that will help me invest in my leadership and become a better leader.  How are you intentionally growing as a leader?  I would love to hear what you are reading and studying.

Be Sociable, Share!

I am on a journey to see how God will use me in this messy thing called the "Church." While on that journey I hope to inspire, equip and move others to lead as God has created them too. I also look forward to seeing how God develops me as a leader. Thanks for listening to my voice.

    Regretfully, I don't really have as much time as I'd like to read, since college is so demanding, but I am taking leadership positions in the various activities that I'm involved in. One thing I always focus on is to lead by example and only expect from others what you would do yourself. I also think about certain situations where my leadership skills should've been present. I analyze the situation, what I did in that situation, and what I could've done better to be a leader.

    As for a weekly plan for it, I just go to the different events and meetings of the organizations that I'm in and I take notes not only about the content material, but also who the leaders are and what actually makes them that way, I guess my biggest view towards it is to always lead by example.
