In the 45 years that I have been blessed to be a leader, I have come to understand that sometimes, encouragement is all we need to achieve success in our individual and God-given goals. Proverbs 11:25 says, “He who refreshes others will himself be refreshed.” This means that God calls us to encourage and build one another – especially during tough times. The art of encouragement goes beyond prayers and words. It is a ministry dedicated to lifting people through many words, emotional support, actions, and even thoughts. It is a core part of leadership and when you are encouraged as a leader, you can encourage others with more confidence and strength.
Nonetheless, leadership is often a lonely road. People see you as a source of strength, wisdom, and encouragement and forget that you are human too and you need help, encouragement, and love on some days. That is why I firmly believe that leaders ought to stick together and provide each other with all the help we need. This is the community we have built at the Calvary Leaders Network and are working to improve and grow in oneness. Like my mentor, John Maxwell says, “Remember, man does not live on bread alone: sometimes he needs a little buttering up.”
