In this episode of the 5 Leadership Questions podcast, Todd Adkins and Daniel Im breakdown the leadership book The First 90 Days: Proven Strategies for Getting Up to Speed Faster and Smarter by Michael D. Watkins. In their conversation they discuss the following questions:
- What’s the book and why does it matter?
- Overview of the book
- How applicable is the book to leadership in my church?
- What are things churches should ignore from the book?
- What can you do this week in light of the book?
“Whatever you are living in is a direct result of whatever you were working on 90 days ago.”
“This book is about helping you assess what the situation is and apply the right strategy to that situation.”
“You have to figure out how this place works before you work on this place.”
“Imagine if the next 90 days were your first 90 days.”
“The first 90 days matter because it will help you get to the break even point.”
“Your job is to find clarity and understanding and then bring that to the surface.”
“You need to read it over and over again every time you have a transition.”
“When you transition into a new role, you are consuming not producing.”
“We need to stop approaching leadership from a scarcity mindset.”
“You aren’t going to be able to separate the wheat from the chaff unless you use the lens of Scripture.”
