In this episode of the 5 Leadership Questions podcast, Todd Adkins and Daniel Im breakdown the leadership book The 4 Disciplines of Execution: Achieving Your Wildly Important Goals by Chris McChesney, Sean Covey, and Jim Huling. 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?
“If you practice these four disciplines of execution, you will reach your goals.”
“If you want results you need strategy and execution.”
“We are not only selling the vision, now we are breaking it down into parts so we can actually accomplish the goal.”
“If you want to get out of the whirlwind, then you need to develop a pipeline.”
“Lag measures are the results that you get. Lead measures are the inputs that you do.”
“For a lot of churches what stands between them and getting stuff done is a stack of post it notes.”
“When you are modeling, you have the right to coach at a higher level.”
“The process is for the people, the people are not for my process.”
“Don’t read this book by yourself. Read it with someone else.”
