This week my good friend Chad Aukland was teaching a group of pastors about stewardship and generosity when he said these words, “If you want to go fast, go alone.  If you want to go far, go with a team.”  Chad’s words cut me to the core because too often in my life I have been far too self-reliant and not enough of a team builder and delegator.

If you have struggled with self-reliance, this week’s Top 10 list is for you.  Many posts discuss topics like hiring, networking, communicating, leadership development, and even terminations.  Make sure you bookmark these posts and visit them often.

Before getting to the list, I want to remind you discount rates are still available for the ReThink Conference.  For my money, this is the best conference for senior pastors and executive pastors in America.  Hosted by Carey Nieuwhof and the team at Orange, this April 26-28 event provides the best speakers and most-practical content of any conference I attend.  Readers of this site can click HERE  or on the image above to save $40 of regular rates if you register by February 16th.  And if you sign up, make sure you stop by and say “Hello” as I will be in attendance and live-blogging.
