Pressure in Leadership…

Pressure has multiple meanings: 1) Continuous physical force exerted on an object, 2) Persuasion, influence, or intimidation to make or coerce someone to do something.

There is no doubt leadership comes with strong elements of pressure.

How do leaders handle pressure when it arises?

The best place to begin is with fervent prayer.

Learn to relieve pressure through activity. Exercise is a start.

Create expectations that are achievable and realistic.

Break big chunks into smaller ones and focus on one at a time.

Never forget the purpose of perfecting us into the people God wants and needs us to be in His service.

Nutritional Leaders…

Health, healthy food, and exercise seem quite popular these days. It appears that physical exercise is directly related to the nutritional value of the food we eat. Go figure.

Consider a connection to leadership.

The healthier the food, the healthier the body. Isn’t this true of leadership? The healthier the leadership, the healthier the followers.

It is easier to talk about, than do. Wow! How true. Every leader knows that talking about leading is easier than leading.

Good nutrition extends the quality of life. Leaders who feed followers a nutritious spiritual diet extend the quality of both leader and follower.

The benefits of a nutritional leader help both sides.
