Within leadership, planning and decision making, timing is sometimes an overlooked element. The best laid plans could fail due to misjudging the “when”. Here are five things to consider, when timing the implementation of a new strategy.
My prayers have been answered lately and for that I am grateful. I say lately, because I recently have been making an effort to be very specific and consistent. Continue reading to see the effect it has on my life.
A new leader might think, “It would be great if I could give my team everything they desire.” Higher compensation, benefits, resources, information, the list goes on. But a good leader understands, not only is that impossible, it could also be detrimental. Continue reading for 5 reasons why saying “no”, when required, is important.
As leaders, we need to be in tune with our team in order to solve problems. That means we have to listen. In order to ensure you are listening to the right thing, you need to ask the right questions. Here are three ways to make that happen.
Leaders learn a lot and know many different things. Some of these things can be learned on the job or through various industry experience. A lot of times, education serves as the background for a leader’s knowledge. But there is one thing, that every leader must know in order to succeed, no matter the business or industry, no matter the level of leadership. If a leader fails to understand this, they will fail.

Christians pray and ask God for help with problems. Some people think that means sitting back and doing nothing, waiting for God to magically work it all out. That sort of faith will get you nowhere. The Bible clearly teaches in James 2:17 that faith without works is dead.
There is no big secret. There is no magic pill. Things in this life worth having require counsel with the Most High, dedication and hard work. That’s it.
Sometimes, we are our biggest opponent to completing the mission. We are blinded by temporary obstacles, unable to see the potential within ourselves. Having faith means that we tie a knot and hold on at the end of our rope. This mindset becomes habitual and success, inevitable.
Getting started isn’t enough. As I recently heard Kai Greene put it, one must string together consecutive days of efficient action on a basic level, in order to achieve desired results. This implies the need for consistent action steps toward your goals, everyday. Personal accountability and follow through are vital.
No matter how big the obstacle, you can surpass it. By the Lord’s grace and mercy, you are a creature made with a spirit of power and not one of fear (2 Timothy 1:7). You just need to talk to God, find your purpose within your spiritual gift and be ready to work.
No weapon formed against you will prosper. (Isaiah 54:17)
Get your shovel ready, God’s waiting.
