Welcome to the wilderness. A time when circumstances seem to be opposed to our “life plan.” A time when God feels distant or silent. God uses this wilderness period to refine us like precious metal and to prepare us for our calling, a calling to be Kings and Queens.
Every person has an inner circle around them. The success of their life often is the result of those closest to you. John Maxwell, calls this the “Law of the Inner Circle.” In his book, the 21 Irrefutable Laws of Leadership he says the Law of the Inner Circle is – “A leader’s potential is determined by those closest to him or her.” One key to your success isn’t a leadership characteristic, it’s actually your relationships.
Every organization I interact with wants more leaders on their team. However, even the best companies only have short term training. Leadership development is an integral and intentional part of any missional business and it starts at the top.
