fridays-listFriday’s List: December 2

I’ve been meaning to do this for quite awhile. I’m asked for recommendations all the time. I’ll be posting a short list every Friday.

Here are the things I’m reading, listening to, loving and wrestling with:

Here’s what I’m reading right now:

Craziness, Consumerism and Making Christmas Awesome by Brandon Cox. Great read.

5 Things The Decline Of Radio And TV Can Tell Us About The Future Of The Church by Carey Nieuwhof. Don’t miss this one.

7 Skills that Are Hard to Learn but Pay Off Forever by Travis Bradberry. This is a great read and very helpful for goals setting for the New Year. HT Tim Stevens (and if you’re not subscribed to Tim’s blog you’re missing out.

How Your Control Freak Tendencies Stunt Your Church’s Growth by Carey Nieuwhof. Very important post.

Simply Brilliant: How Great Organizations Do Ordinary Things in Extraordinary Ways byBill Taylor,  This is a read and then read again kind of book.

Here’s what I’m listening to:

How To Build A Leadership Development Pipeline with Eric Geiger & Kevin Peck on the Vanderbloemen Leadership Podcast  [Podcast]

How to Be Simply Brilliant with Bill Taylor on the Accidental Creative Podcast. Bill Taylor is one of my favorite authors. The Accidental Creative Podcasts is one of my favorite listens every week.

Tim Ferriss on Finding and Focusing on What Truly Matters on the Rainmaker FM podcast. Tim’s an interesting guy and may not be your cup of tea…but I learn a lot by listening to him think out loud.

Quote I’m wrestling with:

“What would have to be true for that approach to work?”  Or, “What would have to be true for the idea on the table to be a fantastic option?” I love these two questions from Roger Martin, Dean of the Rotman School of Management (p. 12, The Design of Business).

My own post I hope you’re reading:

Ranking the Most Powerful Strategies for Launching New Groups:  This thinking comes up over and over again in conversations with readers and consulting clients.
