Things to Check Out

Here are some interesting finds from the last week:

Pastor Steven Furtick had a great reminder about empowerment – if you’re going to accomplish great things, you can’t do it all yourself.  You must empower others to get things done.

Bobby Gruenewald spoke about Idea Persistence at Swerve and the concept that people initially buy-in to you (i.e. relationship) more than the idea.  Later in the week it was followed up with a post entitled, What the Church Should Learn from Google,” about making your “interface” simple.  Definitely worth the read, especially for those who love to think about systems.

Jenni Catron is the executive director of Cross Point Church in Nashville, TN.  I’ve been reading her blog for a few weeks.  She had a great post about the myth of the phrase, “everyone’s replaceable.”

Seth Godin wrote about Breakage – how far are you stretching your relationships with customers, family, friends, co-workers, employees?

Katya offered a good reminder about listening.  This was great for me, because I often get distracted when a lot of things are going on around me.  Check the post out, here.
