SUMMARY:

How can you become a better leader—a leader your team loves to follow? The best people managers lead with an others-first mindset. They create habits and systems to make their teams feel appreciated and loved. In this episode, Craig Groeschel and Kim Simios discuss how you can improve your people-management skills, drilling down into the practices that will draw the best out of the people you lead.

 

KEY TAKEAWAYS:

  • Life.Church never set out to be innovative. Life.Church became innovative when we started hitting walls.
  • Church’s multi-site model happened because we ran out of space.
  • YouVersion was born out of a failed website.
  • Investing in People. Leaders shouldn’t be me-focused. Leaders should be you-focused.
  • The best leaders are not necessarily the most talented or smartest people in the room. They surround themselves with people who are better than themselves.
  • “I notice” and “You matter.”
  • If appreciation is not natural for you, consider systematizing it.
  • Appreciate people more than you think you should. And then double it.
  • Leading is very close to loving.
  • Inspiring People. Inspiring pulls positive behavior from the inside.
  • In any field, no matter your gift mix, you can inspire the people around you.
  • A Balanced Leader. Balance is the inspiring quality that stands above the rest.
  • A balanced leader responds rather than reacts, is internally motivated, is grounded, is self-assured.
  • The presence of a balanced leader inspires, the absence demotivates.
  • Being Real. Authenticity involves a lot of courage.
  • People would rather follow a leader who is real than one who is right.
  • Have the courage to drop the image of perfection and be honest, vulnerable and transparent.

REFLECTION QUESTIONS:

  1. If you were to ask your team what your strengths are as a people manager, what would they say?

 

  1. If you were to implement one of Craig’s insights from the podcast, what would you do (or do differently) tomorrow?
