I am blogging from Atlanta, Georgia at the Catalyst 2014 Conference. I have been asked to serve as a part of the Blogger Team at Catalyst!
Andy Stanley, Pastor of North Point Community Church and one of the best communicators out there opens up each Catalyst Conference. He read from Nehemiah 1 and asked us two questions.
- Who are you?
What breaks your heart?
Even if small, what is in you that must bring about change?
There is a correlation between leaders and change.
- Great leaders make things better.
- Great leaders love progress.
- Great leaders fix broken things.
- Great leaders don’t blame.
“Blame is the most effective change avoidance strategy.”
We, as leaders, hate to see broken things be broken. Broken hearted leaders effect change.
