Faculty Spotlight: Craig Groeschel on Leadership Insecurity & Confidence

If this long hard season taught us anything, it taught us that we are sure to face the unexpected and that change is unavoidable. The toll this can take on your confidence as a leader can break even the strongest among us. But what happens if we shift our mindset?

Amidst doubt, questions, frustration and unknowns, do you ask yourself how to move from here toward a better future? Maybe you’re asking questions like:

  • How do I keep going?
  • How do I keep everyone together?
  • How do I empower the best in those around me?
  • How do I battle my insecurity as a leader?
  • How do I fix the communication problem on my team?
  • How do I make sense of what’s happening in our world?
  • How do I know when to move forward?
  • How do I stay healthy?
  • How do I keep others safe?
  • How do I stay sharp?
  • How will I know if what I’m doing is working…if it’s meaningful?
  • How do I see opportunity even in crisis?
With a mindset to see opportunity even in crisis, leaders can experience growth through difficult times and gain new confidence even in the face of the unexpected.

“Your leadership is always moving in the direction of strongest thoughts.” – Craig Groeschel
