10 Indispensable Practices of the 2-Minute Leader

One of the biggest challenges Christian leaders face is how to create a leadership culture in their churches. It’s something that a lot of Pastors talk about it. It’s something that a lot of conference speakers speak about. But honestly very few people are actually doing it. And it’s because most Pastors lack the tools and actionable plan to make this dream a reality.

That is why I’m excited about my friend Brian Dodd’s new book and accompanying study guide 10 Indispensable Practices Of The 2-Minute Leader.  Brian has over 25 years of experience in church leadership and his site Brian Dodd On Leadership is one of the most popular Christian blogs for Church Leaders.

I recently had the opportunity to talk with Brian about his new book. Here are some of the highlights and thoughts that stood out to me from the conversation:

  • “Most churches have no plan to develop leaders and are asking how to build a leadership culture in their churches.”
  • “Strategic thinking allows you to align your priorities and manage your greatest leadership tensions.”
  • “For a leader, working hard is critical, but thinking hard is crucial.”
  • “God never calls Christian Leaders to an easy task.”
  • “Most leaders quit right before the harvest.”
  • “Don’t give up on the dream that God has put in your heart.”
  • “This book is full of simple (not easy) steps that readers can take every day to grow as a leader.”

The statement that scared me to death was his leading thought. That, “most churches have no plan to develop leaders.” In speaking with Brian, what I appreciate the most is his heart to help see the local church win and in particular provide Pastors and Church Leaders an effective tool to help them build a healthy Leadership Culture.

This book and accompanying study guide is a great tool for Pastors and Church Leaders to use in building community with leaders and disciple them effectively.

Brian has made it possible for me to help get this resource in the hands of as many church leaders as possible. The book has been affordably priced and when you order 10 hard copies or more, he’s throwing in a FREE study guide for each book along with FREE shipping. So click 10 Indispensable Practices Of The 2-Minute Leader and get your copies today!

Suggestion Box

I’m excited to let you know that we’re getting ready to go to work on a bit of a refresh and redesign for my blog. So that means this is your chance to offer up your feedback and suggestions as to what you’d like to see change. I’d love to hear your thoughts, so leave your comments below. Specifically I’m interested to hear your ideas about the following couple of areas:

1. What features would you change and do away with immediately?

2. What are the best features that you wouldn’t change and would be disappointed if they went away?

3. What can we do to make it easier for you to leave your comments and participate in the conversation?

4. How can I make it easier for you to access older content and archives?

5. What changes would you make to the “vibe and feel” of the site?
