Thoughts on Leadership Development by Tony Morgan

Some great thoughts by Tony Morgan from his book Killing Cockroaches:

  • Leaders can't be recruited from the platform. We have to challenge them one-on-one. It requires a personal invitation.

  • Leaders won't be fulfilled by performing tasks. We need to give them real responsibility.

  • Leaders don't follow doers. We need to make sure they're connected to another strong leader.

  • Leaders don't want to be micromanaged. We have to eliminate the tendency to control the process. Instead, hold people accountable for the outcomes.

  • Leaders won't commit to ambiguity. We need to offer a clear vision. And it better be big.

  • Leaders just don't show up. We have to be intentional about leadership development.

About Me

I am a husband to Eva, father of 4, pastor, and most of all passionate follower of Jesus Christ. The focus of my life is to make the most of every opportunity God gives me to bring glory to Him. Outside of the time spent in my role as a pastor, I spend most of my time with my family -- a good deal of that coaching various sports teams that my children are involved with. Every fall and winter you will find me rushing to the woods of Indiana and West Virginia in search of a monster whitetail buck.
