Not killing themselves by working long hours or never taking a break or frantically sharing vision. But demonstrating their passion, vision, and convictions through intentional actions that cause those whom they lead to want to take on some new challenge. I know I’m around a solid leader when I start dreaming of executing big ideas or re-thinking the way I lead.
I’ve been excited by some of the projects other ministry leaders in various organizations are working on–side projects that have the potential to have a huge impact. Even if they are things that I am not gifted in I get fired up when I sense how much they care and how much extra time they put in to make a dream a reality.
Matt Stauffer, on staff with Intervarsity just started Staff Hacker, a technology and productivity blog for campus ministry leaders. It’s caused me to think more strategically about the RE-Think Blogference and to focus on real needs and problems of ministry leaders.
