Being a leader is hard

June 17, 2008

*Because at my core I’m a people pleaser, still trying to learn that its God’s opinion of me that truly matters.

*Because making mistakes is part of the deal.

*Because the people you are serving become your family.

*Because staying engaged, energetic, and passionate is not a guarantee.

*Because people see your weaknesses.

I still feel called to be a leader.  I still have so much to learn.  I am so grateful to be at a place where people love me and have patience with me.  Without that being a leader would be a whole lot harder.

  1. you are a solid leader… today i was priviledged to see you listen well, care deeply, weigh options, talk straight, coach, partner, remember the big picture, create, check yourself, do what you don’t love, communicate well, stay in charge, lead well and inspire.

    – intentionally anonymous because it could be any one of us who served under your leadership today
