EE Leaders | Leadership Lessons Season 2 Episode 7 - Leading with Clarity
Pastor Bill Mitchell, Boca Raton Community Church, shares about leading with clarity. This talk is from BocaLead, a monthly business luncheon hosted at their church and taught by Pastor Bill. Using a ladder as a model, Bill shares the six rungs that are essential in leading with clarity: 1)Identity; 2)Direction; 3)Operations; 4)People; 5)Engagement; 6)Influence. The two side-rails represent your personal life and your corporate life. This is a process that Bill and his wife personally go through together every 5 years or so to reassess where they are and where they want to be heading. (Complete notes from this event are available at bocalead.com/clarity.)
“Clarity is the ability to clearly lead people on an agreed upon journey.”
“This whole thing is called alignment. We’re going to align our thinking to clarity today.”
“Alignment: These six areas will bring stability to you and your organization as you seek to lead in the direction you have set."
“As you look to the future you have to understand your identity, and it’s not easy. Don’t get stuck in your past identity.”
“Where are you heading? What are your values? How can you use those things to inspire and motivate others?”
“If you are a person of discipline, you are a person who works out what you do.”
One Piece of Advice | Be in Agreement with Your Spouse
Dan Grittner, Lifespring Church in Royal Palm Beach, FL, shares his one piece of advice: Be in agreement with your wife. The concept of being one flesh with your wife involves every area of life. Unity in a marriage is very powerful and brings great benefits for your life and ministry. It takes time, it takes work, it takes effort. But the results are worth it.
“Agreement is so powerfully important.”
‘It’s really that your dreams come together as one. Your direction comes together as one. That you’re in agreement with your spouse as you move forward.”
“I think God wants us to walk side by side in the same direction.”
