tips for high capacity leaders

By February 10, 2012Leadership

A few days ago I read an excellent article by Mark Batterson offering tips for high capacity leaders.  Batterson is the pastor of National Community Church, a thriving multisite church in the Washington D.C. area.  Over the years, I have apprenticed myself to him via his books and blog.  This article is a great example of why.

Here are a few of my take-aways.

  • Your destiny isn’t a mystery. Your destiny is the cumulative decisions you make.
  • Negativity is a cancer.
  • No margin = no vision.
  • If you listen to God, people will listen to you.
  • If your life is interesting, your messages will be interesting (what does that say about boring preaching!).
  • Don’t try to be who you are not.
