1 | Whoever wants to lead must be “servant of all”

As a Christian leader, Jesus gives us clear direction in Mark 10:44. Whoever is to lead well, serves well. In this podcast, Andy gives great examples about why and how a successful leader continually looks out for the interests of others, rather than focusing on their own self-interest.

“And whoever wants to be first must be slave of all.” | Mark 10:44

2 | How to delegate and not get caught in the “tyranny of the urgent”

As the saying goes, “Give a man a fish, and you feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish, and you feed him for a lifetime.” Teaching and delegation take time and trust, but learning why and how to delegate is key to great leadership.

3 | Lead well by connecting and collaborating

Do you play well with others? Great leaders are excellent at connecting with others relationally, bringing others along on the journey and collaborating with others to figure out how everyone can win.
