What You Missed


Mondays with Diane4w_mon_300x300_090516

Was Jesus a Good Leader?

We often tend to focus on how Jesus exemplified compassion, humility and sacrifice when we look at His life on earth. While these are vital qualities to bring to the workplace, Jesus teaches us more about leadership in the way He owned His identity and calling, practiced self-care, challenged the people around Him and gave them purpose. Diane Paddison shares her thoughts on how we can apply Jesus’ leadership principles to our own lives and more fully embrace what we were created to do.
