Evolve Conference Part 3

Part 2 

In the interest of time, this will be my last blog on the Evolve Conference, at least in this format.*  If anyone really want some notes from other sessions, let me know and I’ll try to throw them together. It’s been one week since the conference began as of today, and I’m still buzzing.

Session 4: Mark Batterson: The Secure Leader

(This all is based around 1 Samuel and the story of Saul and David)

  • You have got to guard against insecurity!
  • Don’t play the comparison game.
  • When you compare, you get two choices: jealousy or pride.
  • Your success is not in the numbers, it’s in being a good leader.
  • It’s good to celebrate your failures.
  • Don’t Panic (be patient)  Saul rushed to action when Samuel ran late, and it cost him dearly.
  • Don’t get defensive, listen to your most important critics.
  • Surround yourself with your assets.
  • It’s tempting to surround yourself with people one step behind you so you look smart, but they will fail you and work against you in the end.  Their success is your success!
  • Keep building altars; remember where it all comes from

*One of my favorite parts of the conference was the breakout for UNchristian.  I’ll be blogging in multiple parts on the the thoughts from this breakout.  This will probably be a continuing theme for a while.
