Here are a couple of leadership links to take note of:
1) John Maxwell: “Everyone Communicates, Few Connect”
New York Times Bestseller, John Maxwell, is posting his new book on his blog for you to read and you can even become a part of it by commenting on the post and submitting a pic. The catch is, he’s only leaving a chapter up each week so jump in now to chapter 3.
2) Michael Hyatt: The Law of Replication
Michael Hyatt is the C.E.O. of Thomas Nelson Publishing. His creative leadership style and hard work ethic appeal to me and I think it will connect with you.
This post, The Law of Replication, made me reflect today on something I was taught 10+ years ago: You teach what you know, but you reproduce what you are.
Hyatt has a great illustration on the law of reproduction. Check it out.
3) Mark Batterson: “Primal” Book Tour
Mark Batterson is the Pastor of National Community Church, an innovative church in Washington D.C. He is a published author of “In a Pit with a Lion on a Snowy Day: How to Survive and Thrive When Opportunity Roars,” and “Wild Goose Chase: Reclaim the Adventure of Pursuing God.” His coming release, “Primal” will be hitting bookstores soon.
As with his other books, Batterson will be traveling through the US teaching on his book at churches. Their are booking the tour now. It would be a great win for your church to have Mark in.
