The Hard Things

Let’s face it…leadership is filled with hardships. There’s nothing inherently easy about leading effectively, even if it ‘s something that comes naturally to you. No matter what you do, you’ll always have to deal with the “people factor”. People (including all of us) are imperfect beyond comprehension. And even though God’s grace covers our imperfection, it doesn’t necessarily make us any easier to deal with.

Leadership is about the hard things. It’s about having the difficult conversation. It’s about making unpopular decisions. It’s about doing what God says even if it goes against “the system”. Yes, it’s about vision, passion and relationships, but those things all fall by the wayside if we’re unwilling to do the hard things along the way.
