3 Leadership Phobias Christian Women Face

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.

Prayer as Work

Leadership by Christian women should look radically different than any other type of leadership, because Christian women understand the power of praying. Prayer may be the hardest work Christians do to lead effectively in a world that has moved away from God.

Minette Drumwright, in her book The Life that Prays, makes a case that prayer should be a strategy with two major purposes: “(1) to know God in Christ intimately, to love Him increasingly, and to become more like Him; and (2) to participate with Him in what He is doing in the world.”

Take the 9 Books–9 Months Leadership Challenge

Reading Wars, Philip Yancey’s July 20 blogpost, stirred a commotion about how social media and the Internet train us to read short passages, distracting us from the deep reading of books. Christian women leaders should take note and consider alternatives for growing their leadership knowledge. Not all online applications allow distractions. In fact, our online leadership training for women does just the opposite! It provides a platform for women to reflect deeply about the book and the online training they receive each month.
