Leadership can be a tricky reality. Some people are given a title that conveys leadership. Others earn respect and become leaders in their own right.
The focus here at 3 Question Leadership is much simpler, however. Having a title doesn’t pave the way to executing the 3 Questions. You don’t have to be the high man on the totem pole to assess what you can do and who you can get to help.
The bottom line is actually pretty simple: make a positive difference.
I see this in student ministry all the time. There are kids who are incredible leaders, except they lead the wrong way, making a negative difference.
But when a student sees the opportunity to step up, step out, and make a difference in a room, my heart leaps.
One of my personal goals is to influence a room every time I walk in. I know the skills I have, and I’m ready to put them to use whenever possible.
If we were to agree to focus on making a difference every time we walk into a new situation, what could change around us? Our job, undoubtedly, would start to look different. Our homes might begin to transform. The places we frequent (like restaurants, convenience stores, banks, etc.) could start to look different as well.
So, where are you making a difference? How are you impacting the situations you walk into? Is there a change you need to make? Pick one area, start small, and see what happens.
