fridays-listEvery Friday I post a short list of the things I’m reading, listening to, loving and wrestling with:

Here’s what I’m reading right now:

Want To Be More Creative? Start Acting Like Children by Phil Cooke. Excellent!

The State of the Plate 2016 by Greg Atkinson. Very good insights from a report authored by Brian Kluth of Maximum Generosity.

Churches Aren’t Christian Cruise Ships by Dan Reiland. A very good read, especially if you’re involved on a leadership team.

Back to the Beginning: 15 Things About Me That Are Also True About You by Tony Morgan. This post is not strategic…but if you are a Christ-follower it will encourage you.

5 Questions for a Better Discipleship Path – Defining a Simple, Effective Discipleship Process (Part 2) by Gabe Kolstad via Don’t miss this one. Some very good questions.

5 Behaviors of Leaders that do it the Hard Way by Dan Reiland. Read this with your team.

How To Know What Your Audience Is Thinking BEFORE You Communicate by Carey Nieuwhof. If you’re a speaker or on a teaching team, this is a great read.

Designed to Lead: The Church and Leadership Development by Eric Geiger and Kevin Peck. Technically…I’m re-reading this book. Very strong and helpful. You can read my review right here.

Here’s what I’m listening to:

Joe Badaracco – Managing the Gray on the Peter Bregman Leadership Podcast. Based on Badaracco’s most recent book: Managing the Gray: Five Timeless Questions for Resolving Your Toughest Problems at Work.

Podcast: Modern Mindfulness and Creativity (with Rohan Gunatillake) on the Accidental Creative Podcast.

Predictable Success: Getting Your Organization on the Growth Track – and Keeping It There by Les McKeown. I’m testing out Audible for absorbing an additional book every month.

Quote I’m wrestling with:

“The goal today, the true definition of success, is not to try to be the best at what lots of other people are already doing. It’s to be the only one who does what you do. What do you promise that no one else can promise.” Bill Taylor

App I’m using:

I’m committed this year to increasing my effectiveness. Nozbe is a leading productivity app. First heard about it from Michael Hyatt. It’s already making a big difference.

My own post I hope you’re reading:
