Leadership is Leadership

[tweetmeme source=”leanisgood” service=”ow.ly” only_single=false]I had the privilege of attending “the nines” leadership network today at my church.  If you’re not familiar, it’s a shotgun blast of over a hundred leaders talking about game changing events from their lives.  Each is around 6 minutes long and is mostly pastors but has some business leaders sprinkled in as well.  It was amazing to listen to all the different game changing events that these wonderful leaders have developed or experienced.  Lot’s of takeaways from this event, but the largest thing that hit me was the good leadership within an organization is exactly the same whether you are starting a new church, expanding your church, or just trying to manufacture widgets at a competitive price!  It was scary how closely the Toyota leadership model matched these successful pastors over and over.

Conclusion:  Good leadership is just plain good leadership no matter what you are trying to do!
