I don’t think you would be reading this blog if you didn’t have some interest in growing yourself as a pastor and leader. In this post, I’m going to share with you a simple way you can do just that, as well as grow others along with you. Often I think we try to overcomplicate leadership development, when all that is really needed is a willingness to learn.
As long as you have a willingness to learn, the rest is simple. Start with these four steps.
- Pick out a book, blog, or podcast.
- Read or listen to it.
- Ask two questions:
- What did I learn?
- How can I apply it?
- Invite others to join you. (Form a group.)
The hard part of leadership development is finding those who have a desire to learn. Once you’ve found them, the developing should come easy.
