Leadership in the Roaring 2020’s will continue to be an ongoing process of navigating a jagged series of unpredictable no-win scenarios.
This is not an anomaly; it is the new normal. We are going to have to get used to it.
Effective leaders will have to be:
1. laser focused on their mission
4. persistently hopeful
6. have the hide of elephants.
Case in Point:
Churches reopening too early in this COVID-19 crisis will be criticized by half the country. Churches reopening too late will be criticized by the other half. Churches reopening at the perfect time will be criticized by everyone.
What are leaders to do?
