My dad sent me this video, a great little piece about “leadership” and, more importantly, how a movement is made. Dad and I are always looking out for good leadership discussion and training pieces for our NEW BREED training workshops.
This is a great little tool (regardless of how shoddy the camera work is) to provoke discussion at a leaders’ meeting.

I love the following three statements. These would be great to hand out on a piece of paper to your leadership team and simply ask: Agree or disagree? Why? Are there scriptural truths to back up this idea?
1. Remember the importance of nurturing the first few followers as equals. It’s about the movement, not you!
2. It was the first follower transformed the “lone nut” into a leader.
3. We’re told that we all need to be leaders, but that would be really ineffective. The best way to make a movement, if you really care, is to courageously follow and show others how to follow. When you find a lone nut doing something great, have the guts to be the first person to stand up and join in.
