The most important leadership that can happen in a person’s life is self-leadership.  It is the most important and it is the most difficult.  You simply cannot lead others if you cannot first lead yourself.

That is why this week’s Top 10 list is so important.  Many of the posts deal with the vital role of self-leadership and the consequences it has.  You will want to bookmark these posts and revisit them often.

I also want to make you aware of a few resources which will help you become a more effective leader:

  • Church Fuel – For my money, they provide the best online coaching resources for pastors and church leaders in America.  This week they are launching a new course called Journey To Healthy Systems.  Don’t miss this.  Included is training for volunteers, assimilation, giving, preaching, leadership and communication.  Click HERE to check it out.  You will not be disappointed.  Insanely practical resources at a great price!
  • 2 Great New Books (see above) – In the last two weeks I received copies of two highly-anticipated Christian leadership books, The Mythical Leader: The Seven Myths Of Leadership by Ron Edmondson and Finish: Give Yourself The Gift Of Done by Jon Acuff.  These both look incredible!  Click HERE and HERE for more information and to get your copies today.  I can’t wait to start reading them.
