Why I Do What I Do? Print E-mail

It seems so rare to ever find out the impact God has on lives when we allow Him to work through us. Especially when, like I do , we allow him to dispatch us through the "known world". Many folks think that there is only a foreign mission field. I am learning and having reinforced daily that the good old USA has many folks that are in need of just plain Christian Compassion as well.

Good Morning Colonel,

It has been several months since I last emailed you. I apologize for this, but I have been very busy the last couple of months. My company paid for me to get my PHR certificate with the understanding that if I failed I would be responsible of reimbursing the company the one thousand dollars they paid. I really couldn’t afford to fail. Glory to God I passed the test just over two weeks ago.

Chapter XXIII “Hot Wash” Leadership Performance Assessment Print E-mail

As we bring this leadership tutorial to a close, there are some things that I want you to pay special attention to as an up-and-coming leader. First I want you to always bear in mind that while you can in fact learn from your successes, more often than not they will be more effective in helping you teach others while you will learn much more from your mistakes. When you are successful in an endeavor, it is by and large because you already know what to do and how to do it. On the other hand you will learn mountains from your mistakes, when you accept the responsibility for making them that is. Second never forget that that same maxim also holds true for those subordinates you lead. If you want to foster leadership in those around you then develop a nurturing style of leadership and do the world a favor, leave your road of life littered with germinating neophyte leaders, not their corpses.

In our last discussion the initiating text will come from II Chronicles 34:3 - 35:19 where we are going to learn our lesson from Josiah who is remembered by most people who know about him as a triumphant leader.

Before a leader can ever achieve any degree of real success, he or she must first win his or her internal battles. Similarly the victorious leader must guide their team to victory by helping it to resolve any internal dissension or inter-personal rivalries that may exist.
