Leading in a Crisis: God Does Make a Difference!
Across the world, leaders are facing unprecedented challenges. Whether you exercise your leadership in a small business or a large corporation, in a family or a church, in a school or a non-profit organization, the COVID-19 crisis has disrupted your leadership, not to mention your life. You may wonder: Does God make a difference in this crisis? Does God make a difference for me as I try to exercise wise leadership?
Finding Our Bearings in a Crashing Economy
At the De Pree Center, we exist to help marketplace leaders integrate their faith and work. For most of us, integrating our faith and work looks drastically different than it did just a month ago. A global pandemic and crashing economy rightly catalyze urgent questions about our businesses, our leadership, and our livelihoods.
Reflections from the Epicenter
We pride ourselves on being resourceful, intelligent, and self-sufficient people. But if there’s one thing that’s become clear through this pandemic, it’s how vulnerable and dependent we are as human beings and as a human society. Despite our desire to be (or at least appear to be) invulnerable and independent, we are clearly otherwise.
Leading in Uncharted Territory
In under a month, literally everything about what we assume about what a church DOES changed. Sunday morning services? Small groups? Committee Meetings? Programs on our church campus? All cancelled… Even our Easter Sunday Services for many. So, now what does ministry look like in this changing world? How do we clarify what should never change and at the same time prepare to let go of many things that are dear to us? What does it mean to be adaptive leaders who are able to go into uncharted territory when everybody has been thrust into it at the same time?
