Happy New Year!
If there is one thing I’m passionate about this year it is seeing leader’s lead from their extraordinary best! If there is anything that 2016 reinforced, it’s that we need extraordinary leadership perhaps more than ever! Leaders, we have a sacred call. Because of our influence we have the power to affect and change the lives of the people we lead. Let’s be great stewards of this responsibility and be committed to leading ourselves well this year.
In my book, The 4 Dimensions of Extraordinary Leadership, I explain how I believe the Great Commandment gives us a framework for leading from our extraordinary best. Jesus is challenging us to love God and others with all of who we are – heart, soul, mind and strength. I believe our best leadership – healthy, thriving, God-honoring leadership – occurs when we learn to lead from these four dimensions.
- Which dimension are you naturally strong in?
