I believe that there is value in taking the best practices from business and considering application within the church. I recently found a great example at The Conversation Blog from the Harvard Business Review – 12 Things Good Bosses Believe. I believe they can translated to apply to pastors or other church leaders. Here are a few directly from the post:
- My success — and that of my people — depends largely on being the master of obvious and mundane things, not on magical, obscure, or breakthrough ideas or methods.
- One of the most important, and most difficult, parts of my job is to strike the delicate balance between being too assertive and not assertive enough.
- How I do things is as important as what I do.
I invite you to check out the full post (12 Things Good Bosses Believe) for the rest of the list.
