As I think about how Rook is played—and how to win games—these six leadership thoughts come to mind.
None of us is capable of being everyone’s pastor.
A leader’s negative traits spread further and faster than a leader’s positive traits.
Most pastors and church leaders have never received formal training in relational skills.
Reading biographies has proven to be a good hobby, a way to engage the time, learn more of the world we live, and be able to converse with many.
When you are busy—and we’re all busy—we need principles we hold to in order to simply think, dream, and strategize.
Pastors can be the worst at allowing others to hijack the time God has given them.
If we fail to address the temptation to move toward laziness, we become unfaithful in our leadership.
As insecurity continues to fester in a leader’s heart, the insecurity can manifest itself in more painful ways.
Credibility is absolutely essential in leadership. Without credibility your great ideas won’t be heard and your big plans won’t be embraced.
