This is a guest post by Ashley Beaty, Customer Marketing Manager at Gloo. Effective communication is more challenging than ever in today’s fast-paced world, and church leaders, in particular, struggle to connect with their congregations as emails and social media posts often go unread, buried under an avalanche of messages.

That makes it nearly impossible to effectively communicate with new visitors or even existing members of your community. Then add that the ti ..read more

10 Signs Your Leadership Is Driven By Selfish Ambition
Carey Nieuwhof Blog
by Carey Nieuwhof
3w ago
Let’s ask an awkward, difficult, and at times piercing question: What motivates your ambition? Is it selfish? That’s an important question to ask. Why? Because if you don’t ask it, I promise everyone else around you will. Mostly I don’t like that question because I don’t like the answer to that question. Sometimes my motivation is selfish. I interviewed Gordon MacDonald on my leadership podcast (if you missed it, it was one of the best episodes we’ve done to date, listen here). Gordon observed that most leaders in their thirties are driven by ambition. Gordon is a little more accura ..read more

6 Early Warning Signs You’re Dealing With a Toxic Person
Carey Nieuwhof Blog
by Carey Nieuwhof
3w ago
You’ve dealt with them before. At your church, as a volunteer, on your staff, and as customers. Toxic people are, well, toxic. An unhealthy person can infect your team like toxins infect the human body. After some exposure, everyone feels sick. The optimist in you and me hopes that toxic people will get better, and the good news is, sometimes, they do. Unhealthy people can grow healthier with the right care and attention in a healthy environment. But some toxic people just don’t. Some remain difficult, despite all attempts. And as you know, if you don’t address toxic people — or worse, let th ..read more

5 Keys to Creating a Make-it-Happen Culture at Your Church
Carey Nieuwhof Blog
by Carey Nieuwhof

A culture where your team defaults to action rather than sticking with the status quo? Start With This Phrase (and Question) When we were creating our value statements at Connexus Church, where I served as Lead Pastor, I wanted to have a value statement that captured the spirit of a church pl ..read more
