Leadership Summit – Session 1 Bill Hybels
Every leader must make decisions. And often the stakes are high.
As a leader you cannot be decision-averse or passive. You must make the call and you must take responsibility.
Leaders need to chronicle the process and results of their decision-making.
Hybels shared some of his leadership proverbs, or axioms:
Get the right people around the table.
Facts are your friends.
When something feels funky…ENGAGE! (problems don’t go away if left unattended)
Leaders call fouls. (and sometimes on himself)
Take a flyer! (take a calculated risk from time to time)
– every church needs a flyer now and then. pony up! God, rock our church, our people, our world!
This is church. (when a guy’s son got arrested and hybels left the office to have coffee with him)
