December 25. Christmas comes on the same date every year. Then why do we feel so frazzled? We might need to reconsider not just how and who we serve, but why we serve.

Inquiring leaders want to know, “How can we improve those on our team?” “How can we acquire, train and retain talent?” It’s worth considering.

I was tired but energized by the response of the audience. I had completed my ninth day of teaching business and leadership skills in several remote villages on a mission trip to Kenya. And now, we weren’t quite sure how many would attend our business women’s conference at this location. We knew God would honor our efforts, even if only 20 people showed up.
We were overjoyed when on day one, the rural church sanctuary was overstuffed with women, many seated on the dirt floor. Countless others piled into flimsy plastic lawn chairs, spilling out every opening of the cracked block walls under the shelter of the sweltering corrugated tin roof. Scores more strained to lean in through pane-less window shaped holes to glean wisdom, and even more lined up on curbs outside. We were impressed with their desire to learn – no matter what obstacles they faced to get there or the discomfort they experienced to listen in.
Leadership. At times it seems very lonely at the top. But it doesn’t need to be that way. We don’t have to succumb to the lies of leadership; we can overcome any falsehood associated with the challenge of leading as
