Holistic Leadership Development

Leadership - Logan LeadershipYou want to develop leaders who will do what Jesus called us to do, leaders who can take the church forward into the 21st century. You look to the fields and see them, as Jesus does, ready for harvest — and you know that’s where your ministry needs to concentrate.

What’s needed is holistic leadership development — the kind of leadership development that comes from the harvest and leads people back into the harvest, resulting in subsequent generations of new believers and new leaders living as Jesus called us to live.

We can help you develop leaders the kind of leaders you need in a way that is both relational and intentional… and ultimately effective in helping your church accomplish its mission.

An interesting concept from Jeff Norris: "assum-a-side" -- death by assumptions. Assuming we know what's going on rather than asking leads to a slow death (or sometimes instant martyrdom). Sometimes we think we know what people are thinking, what their concerns are,...

Reprogramming our self-talk

I've discovered not only in my coaching but through life in general that people often engage in negative self-talk. "I'm always X." "I struggle with Y." "I can't do Z." They spend a lot of mental energy rehearsing the wrong stuff, embedding it even more deeply into...
