In this special episode of the 5 Leadership Questions podcast and the Unseen Leadership podcast, Todd Adkins and Chandler Vannoy are joined by Christine and Nick Caine who are founders of the The A21 Campaign. During their conversation, they discuss how to focus on developing others, balancing delegation and excellence, and growing as an emotionally healthy leader.
“We should always be focusing on developing pipelines and pathways so other people can be developed.”
“If you are just going to do, you have already put a limit, a ceiling, and a lid on your leadership.”
“We should always be thinking, how is this sustainable without me being the one to sustain it.”
“I would take willingness to grow over giftedness and talent every day of the week because you can work with that.”
“You have to inspect to make sure you get what you expect.”
“Leaders need to be careful not to drive too hard in order to get an outcome at the sake of people. We have to remember we are working with people, and God loves people.”
“The deeper I allow the Holy Spirit to do healing in me, the more effective leader I become.”
“My gift quickly took me to a place that my character would not have kept me if God did not do a work in me.”
“If the spotlight on you is brighter than the light of God within you, it is going to destroy you.”
“The degree to which your heart is healthy is the degree to which you will remain a healthy leader.”
“Being a healthy leader is the best gift you can give your team and your family.”
