Organizing, Part 1: A Strategy for Servant Leadership

“Never be lacking in zeal, but keep your spiritual fervor, serving the Lord” (Romans 12:11 NIV).

Do you ever go to start a project and find yourself cleaning your house instead? It’s amazing how many things can keep me from doing the creative things I really love. It usually starts because I’m missing one thing I need to get moving on my project, and in the process of finding that thing, I end up trying to organize the junk drawer or using granite cleaner to scrub the island in my kitchen. Have you been there?

Doing Work We Love

Almost two years ago, I came to work at Christian Women’s Leadership Center with a challenge to help create nine courses which would become part of our Leadership Certificate Program. I benefitted from the groundwork of a team of people who did the difficult work of researching and selecting the appropriate topics before I arrived. They did much of the hard work, and I reaped an opportunity to implement the plan.
