Some statistics reported have said about 75-80% of churches (even as high as 90 I’ve read) are in decline or plateau.
I’m thankful to have served in churches and business in fast growth mode.
But, equally important in the formation of me as a leader, is that I’ve had experience in leading through difficult days also. Most of my times leading with periods of decline were in the business world, although I have entered a couple churches in the midst of difficult days. So, I’ve led through periods of decline; and faced many plateaus in business and in the church. Of course, those times are less fun than in the growth periods.
Much of what I’ve learned in this podcast though I learned through suffering through my own bad decisions as a leader during periods of decline or plateau.
In this episode, we discuss bad decisions leaders make in times of decline or plateau.
We are hearing from many leaders who are enjoying these podcast. We know they are simple. It is intended to be a quick listen to a conversation between father and son – (and in this one – father and friend) who are both struggling to figure out leadership in our individual contexts.
As always, I hope this episode helps you be a better leader.
