What are two essential questions for every leader?
1. What are you learning?
My father used to tell me, “If you stop learning, you stop living.” When a leader stops learning, their influence starts diminishing. You can only lead someone else if you know where you are and who you are. Then everything we experience in life compounds our education.
2. Who are you leading?
Just like a disciple/follower of Jesus Christ makes disciples, leaders build other leaders. Jesus understood that leadership is influence. We are working hard at Mobberly on building an infrastructure and strategy for building the influence every person has. Since our mission is “People leading people into a life-changing, ever-growing relationship with Jesus Christ” – leveraging each person’s influence is essential.
If you’d Iike to understand your influence and increase your influence, check out our Essential Leadership Podcast in person each Wednesday night, 6:30 p.m. in the Crossing on the Mobberly Longview Campus or click below for each episode.
