Have you ever heard people say, “Hurting people hurt people”? As Christian leaders, conflict will come our way through our life experiences and through the people we work with. By facing our own struggles, we are more equipped to lead effective teams in ways that help rather than ways that hurt.
Great leaders throughout history faced phobias, and so might we when God directs us to lead.
Winston Churchill faced his fear of public speaking after he froze for three minutes giving a public speech when he was 29 years old. After facing that fear, he was later able to deliver speeches to inspire and lead his nation through a difficult and long victory during World War II.
