Why Do So Many Leaders Finish Poorly? – EH Leader Podcast

70% of the leaders in the Bible did not finish well. Many contemporary leaders don’t finish well either. The question is why? I begin this podcast by looking at Saul, the first king of Israel. He is charismatic, gifted, and intelligent. He is a leader of tens of thousands. However, his walk with God gradually deteriorates into jealousy, stubbornness, and a hardness of heart.

Building healthy teams is one of the primary tasks for every leader, whether that leader is a lead pastor, a para-church ministry department head, a nonprofit or marketplace executive, a church board member, or a small group leader. In this podcast I summarize 30-plus years’ experience of building teams into 5 key points: A Healthy You A Clear Vision Time and Thoughtfulness The Acknowledgement and Confronting of Elephants; and Mature Supervision The nuances and specific suggestions are what makes this podcast so different from other material I have written on the subject (e.g. “Culture and Team Building” chapter in The Emotionally Healthy Leader book).
