The High Drama of Decision Making
Leadership Summit :: Session 1 :: Bill Hybels


  1. What does the Bible say?
  2. What would smart advisers advise me to do?
  3. What have you learned from:
    • the Pains of Past decisions?
    • the Gains of Past decisions?
    • the Experiences of the Past?
  4. Is the Holy Spirit prompting me? Romans 8:6
  • Leaders take the call of making the decision and take the responsibility of the decision.
  • If a decision comes out well, thank those who were involved
  • If a decision comes out bad, you take the blame.
