The Radical Shift of Leading from Within

Posted on May 17th, 2022

Most leaders are consumed with solving problems, putting out fires, and managing people.

This was the first 17 years of my ministry. I had become so accustomed to responding to all that was happening on the outside of me that I didn’t know how to lead from the inside.

Tell me if this sounds familiar… 
  • You’re externally managing institutions, people, buildings, and ministries
  • Your prayers are focused on maximizing impact, attendance, and finances
  • You’re busy, overloaded, and anxious.
  • You’re not reflective or curious.
  • You’re always looking for the next book to read or conference to attend
  • You’re determined to remove obstacles and interruptions
  • You regularly ignore your limits
  • Your best energy is spent powering through your to-do list
Most leaders are taught that THIS is good leadership! But the truth is, if you want to be a transformational leader, you must learn to lead from the inside out.

In today’s episode, I share about the three temptations that must be resisted in order to lead from within.
