I recently finished reading “Leading on Empty” by Wayne Cordeiro, and simply put, if you are a leader than this is a must-read! While we in Church-world are seemingly adept at identifying and pointing the finger when it comes to burnout, depression, and the pressures of leadership we are unfortunately rarely as honest, forthright, and helpful with those same issues as Wayne is in this book. Wayne’s courageously transparent about his own struggles while at the same time provides his readers a clear path forward. It’s such a good book that we are going to be reading and discussing it together with the Sun Valley Lead Team this fall.
Here are some thoughts and quotes from the book that impacted me:
