5 for Leadership

Here is the first 5 for Leadership for 2012.  Several bloggers are writing about how to approach this new year.  So take a few minutes to check out some of these posts and prepare for a great year.

Simple Leadership in 2012-This post is from Thomas McDaniels who writes a blog called The Favored Life.  Thomas is the senior pastor of Lifebridge Christian Center in Longview, Texas.  He is often seen as a pastor to pastors.  Check this post out-he provides some great perspective as you head into the new year.

12 Ways Leaders Can Increase Their Leadership in 2012-This piece of perspective is offered by Scott Williams.  Scott’s blog is called Big Is The New Small.  He has served as a pastor and currently leads a firm called Nxt Level Solutions.  Scott and his family live in Edmond, Oklahoma.  His blog and tweets are thoughtful and wise.  This is another great post for some practical advice for leading into the new year.

My Top 10 Theology Stories of 2011-I linked this because Christian leaders need to be keenly aware of the current issues, even within their own domain.  Collin Hansen provides some interesting topics to consider as we look back and look ahead.  This was posted on the Gospel Coalition web site-take a look and consider the trends towards the new year.

From Defeated Pessimist to Realistic Optimist-This comes from the Leadership Freak.  Dan Rockwell is a quality blogger on the topic of leadership-and you have to love someone whose blogging byline is “Helping leaders reach higher in 300 words or less.”  Check out these 10 pithy principles on getting to optimism.

The Chance of a Lifetime-In case you missed it, here is a good beginning of the year perspective from Seth Godin.  He definitely sees the cup as half full.

I hope this first week of 2012 finds you ready and willing to lead!
