Pastor: Three groups of people you need to listen to today

Artie Davis reminds us that feedback is critical for those of us in leadership.  As church leaders, we can’t just go it on our own.  If we’re wise, we will value the leadership of three groups of people:

  1) Your Leadership Circle

These are the ones closest to you. You lead and work with them on a daily and weekly basis. They know your habits and what you expect, and how you react in certain situations.

2) Those on the Inside

Those inside your church also have a unique perception of you. They are generally positive, but what about those on the fringe? How will you pull them in to the vision if they don’t really care for you as an individual?

3) Those on the Outside

How do the people outside your church see you? Are you committed to the community, are you seen as humble and caring, arrogant and prideful?

Who are YOU listening to?

And who do you NOT listen to?

How do YOU deal with feedback and criticism?

    Even the most ardent critic may have something constructive to say. I suppose it is a matter of committing to listen, consider then accept or reject based on the criticism’s merits more than the critic’s.
