Involved = Learning…

One of the greatest lessons for learning comes from Ben Franklin, “Tell me and I forget, teach me and I may remember, involve me and I learn.”

No matter what age group, this thought has application.

Leadership in the home means we must involve children so they learn.

Educational leaders must involve students if they are to learn.

As spiritual leaders within the church, we must know the value of this thought if we are to help the church move from complacency and apathy to learning.

When it comes to an application of biblical principles, involve people in ways that result in learning.

Engaged Leaders…

Three words describe the concept of an engaged leader: occupy, attract, involve. These words may have reference to someone’s interest or attention, but all three are key to understanding the need for leaders to engage others.

Occupying the attention of others indicates we keep them focused and connected.

Attracting others demonstrates we bring them to a place where they can participate. 

Involving others means we include them in the experience.

If we are not doing this, then we have to wonder if we are really engaged leaders.

To necessitate spiritual growth, leaders must be engaged.
