It has been said, “Creativity is the art of concealing your source.” In other words, very few ideas are actually new. Most of our learnings have either been stimulated or directly come from others. Well, I want to reveal my sources. This week’s Top 10 list features a number of leaders I have learned a tremendous amount from. I want to share their insights with you.
Before getting to some of their latest thoughts, I have had hundreds of leaders download the FREE resource The Senior Pastor’s Guide To Breaking Barriers. I don’t want you to miss out.
