45 Amazing Leadership Tips

I mentioned in an earlier post that I went to Catalyst East (Atlanta) recently. I’m still churning over my “takeaways”; but more so over how to put them into practice.

I pulled my notes out and decided to list some things I’m thinking about from the sessions.

Not sure if these will mean as much to you since you weren’t there; but I’ll post them. They’re outstanding! And they’re free. You didn’t even have to go to the conference.

Andy Stanley:

  • Leaders aren’t the people who see a great opportunity, but they are people who seize the opportunity.
  • Action speaks louder than words, and sometimes they echo them.
  • Better to make a difference than a point.
  • Leaders are made one response at a time.
  • God may choose to make you through an opportunity you don’t feel ready for.
  • Influence is greater than a Title.
  • Information and insight alone do not a leader make.
  • If you don’t know why something’s working, you won’t know how to fix it when it’s broken.
  • Leaders don’t leave; superstars stay.
  • Pharaoh Principle: Joseph woke every day thinking of a solution to the problem.
  • If you don’t determine the “win”; people will make it up.
  • Everyone is essential to an effective team.
  • People will let go of what they have; when you give them something better.
  • Great teams never rely on individual thinking and creativity.
  • High-Performance teams go by the playbook.
  • High-Performance teams do high-performance things.
  • We tend to blame people rather than systems. That’s wrong.
  • Orchestrate and Evaluate everything.
  • Clarify the what and the why.
  • Select performance-oriented people.
  • You can’t get people saved, but you can set up dates between God and them.

Patrick Lencioni:

  • People need to be reminded more than instructed.
  • People need to be reminded 7x for people to believe.

Perry Noble:

  • “Anointing” is never an excuse for “going through the process”.
  • The deepest Wounds lead to Empty Tombs
  • Anointing needs Availability

Mark Burnett:

  • You’ll never be “certain” of anything.
  • We’re all scared. Just deal with it.
  • Jump In.

Christine Caine:

  • Get out of Facebook and get your face into the BOOK.
  • Leaders, you make what you are.
  • Better to be marked by God; than marketed by man.
  • Remember those who came before us, or we’re doomed to forget those who come after us.
  • There’s no “suddenness” in the Bible.
  • Is it about Jesus; or me?

Craig Groeschel:

  • If you’re not ready to face opposition; you’re not ready to be used by God.
  • If I blame myself for the declines; someday I’ll take credit for the increases.
  • If you’re not criticized; be careful: you may not be doing God’s will.
  • A little uncertainty = a bunch of faith

Matt Chandler:

  • I’m not a Theologian; I’m a Practician.
  • Outside in (law); Inside out (Christ)
  • Be faithful where you are; find value in who you are.

Simon Sinek:

  • Leaders. You need Followers.
  • Find yourself by why you do something. Rather than what you do.
  • We’re walking in circles; without clear overhead direction.
