How many of you can survive without your phones? Let’s face it as much as we need time off the grid we value our conversations. Whether we like to admit it or not, we all need to connect with other people from time to time. Some of us more than others. When we aren’t able to connect, we start to feel lost and disjointed. The same can be said for our need to communicate with other people.
Have you ever tried to charge your phone, but forgot to plug it in? When you needed to connect the most, maybe to pass the time on a long trip or during a break, your battery losses power and eventually your phone will shut down. Recently, I found my battery low and looked down to see, “Hey, I didn’t connect it!” My phone was connected to the cord but my cord wasn’t connected to the outlet. No wonder it continued to stay the same!
It’s another week and here I am again. Discussing a topic that I sure didn’t plan. Last week we discussed the significance of Godly sisterhood. It’s time to peel back more layers. At the core of Godly sisterhood is relationship. How can someone be your “sister” and you know nothing about them?
As I prepared to share on this month’s topic, I struggled. Sisterhood has become a favorite buzz word, and I always want to be careful to remain relevant, but truthful. I also want to make sure I provide the proper assessment of what sisterhood should resemble. A lot of general truths come to mind, but often the missing ingredient is God.
Do you lead well when you are impatient? We all have things that we find irritating. You might be irritated when people are habitually late. You might get annoyed when you have to repeat an instruction more than once. You might get flustered when people miss deadlines.
I’m very excited about this month’s focus on leadership. I wanted to start our conversation by focusing on an essential characteristic of leadership: authenticity. How does authenticity shape the life of leaders?
