King Solomon, the wisest public servant leader to have ever lived, left us with this truth – there is nothing new under the sun and what has been, will be.

    Would You Do That?

    Would You Do That?

    A lot of times, the question for public servant leaders is not, "can I, but will I?" We are blessed to be a blessing - doing for others what is within our power and means to do. Leaders should be givers. Our leader, Jesus the Christ, was a giver. He gave the ultimate, his life; paying a debt that we owed but could not pay. Obviously for most of us, it would never be that we would have to pay with our life a debt of another, but God will always bring about a situation, circumstance or need in the life of another in our charge, on our team, or a colleague that He has blessed us to easily meet or make better - if we would. The question though is, would we do that?

    Dangerous Alliances

    Dangerous Alliances

    Season 2 kicks off with the timely topic of the danger of forming unholy alliances; and, as a public servant leader, of surrounding yourself only with those who will tell you what you want to hear. As a public servant leader, you have to be careful with whom you align and you must have the courage to surround yourself with staff and advisors who will tell you the truth, even when truth is the last thing you want to hear. This episode explores a point in time in the life of the two most powerful leaders of their day - King Jehoshaphat and King Ahab. Two leaders, two philosophies in leadership, and two strikingly different outcomes. As a leader, your people aren’t doing you any favors by lying to you.

    Best of 2020: Keep Your Eyes On The Coach, Not The Scoreboard

    Best of 2020: Keep Your Eyes On The Coach, Not The Scoreboard

    A  great coach never coaches to the scoreboard even when it looks as though his or her team may lose. Great coaches have studied their opponents from afar long before their team takes the field and have already planned the x’s and o’s of how they are going to take them out. They don’t panic because of the opponent, they execute their plan in spite of the opponent. No matter how formidable your opponent or difficult the obstacles - keep your eyes on the coach, not the scoreboard.

    Best of 2020: When They Envy

    After every public victory, there will be private envy. Don’t think for one moment just because you’re the head the tail will wag when you win. It won’t. They won’t. As a public servant leader, there always will be someone envious of your success. But what do you do when it's the boss? Learn from David how to succeed when you work for an envious and insecure boss.

    Best of 2020: Contra Mundum!

    As a public servant leader, you may wear the label Democrat or Republican, but if you name the name of Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior of your life, the world systems are against you. If you follow the lamb, Satan doesn't care if you call yourself an elephant or donkey, he's coming for you - and especially as you serve and lead in his world system of government. Not with the world, Contra Mundum!
