Part of leadership is improvement. Every leader must constantly be looking for ways to improve, grow, and excel to the next level. Whether you are a coach, CEO, father, or just leading yourself. Truth is all leadership involvesĀ development.

Truth is the larger of an area or responsibility one has to lead the more critical progress becomes. If I am just leading myself, improvement primarily affects me. As a dad, growth affects not just myself, but my wife and kids. As a pastor development or the lack thereof impacts the entire ministry that I lead. With each increase of leadership, responsibility comes an increase of important on development.

So how does one seek continual improvement? One of the best ways is evaluation, asking good questions. Which is why Steve Gladon’s article “5 Leadership Attributes for Every Leader to Work on” is a resource I come back to again and again. In the article, Steve lists 5 questions he uses regularly for evaluation.

I hope you enjoy these 5 questions and find them helping for improvement in your leadership areas. As always be with the Lord’s people on the Lord’s day!

Summer is here, which means slower pace of life, vacation, and hopefully some needed R&R for many of us. While summer may not slow down at work or home, the reality is with vacations and summer break from school, it tends to be a less busy and active time of the year. This is unfortunately the case for many churches. So what is a church leader to do?

Charley Reeb gives 6 Ways to Keep Your Church Faithful During the Summer. “Donā€™t settle for a lazy summer church! Here are six things you can do to keep giving and attendance strong during the summer.” Check out the six suggestions and as a starter, be with the Lord’s people on the Lord’s day.

Children. Leadership. I love talking about both. I enjoy having children and a place to be in leadership. Children are a blessing and yet hard work. Leadership is a blessing and yet hard work. Both of these topics have so much in common. And yet it is so rare to hear people combine the two. Which is why this week’s feature friday was such a challenging and enjoyable read for me.

I pray Tommy Bowman’s “3 Leadership Lessons From My Kids” is a challenge and encouragement to you as well. What other lessons from your kids would you add to this list? Comment below. And as always be with the Lord’s people on the Lord’s day.

As a learner I am always looking for tips and encouragement. However, as a leader I am always looking for the same things, but in concise, short time-efficient ways. Ron Edmondson has accomplished both in this week’s Feature Friday. He gives “20 Leadership tips in Tweet Length“. And the overall theme I picked up on was that people and how we view them and deal with them are crucial in leadership.

Enjoy and as always be with the Lord’s people on the Lord’s day!
