Leadership Straight from Bill Hybels Leadership Learner I re-read both Dallas Willard's classic books, Spirit of the Disciplines and The Divine Conspiracy. I am at a different place now than when I read them in my younger years. They melted me all the way to my core. I needed to be completely reformed by that brilliant, humble man, Dallas Willard. That was really helpful. There is a non-Christian leadership book that I am recommending called The Hard Thing about The Hard Things. This is raw leadership. It has some questionable language in it. It is written by someone not of the Christian faith. I learned things in the rough and tumble world that this guy was building an organization in that I needed to apply to the tidy, sanitized world of Willow Creek Community Church. When people ask me, "How do I get better as a leader?" I have the same four principles that I told younger leaders about for 35 years. Read everything you can read about leadership. Go where leadership is taught. Get around someone who is ahead of you as a leader and ask them smart questions. Then keep leading whatever you are leading with all of the intensity you can muster. Because some high percentage of your new leadership learnings, you will learn while you are leading. You will learn from hitting something and thinking, "That was not fun." You will back the truck up and go a new direction and learn. Read everything you can read about leadership. Read as a discipline. Do not read recreationally about leadership because you will never read. You say, I will read a leadership book every 1 to 2 months. Do it as a discipline. Go where leadership is taught. Way to go on participating in this event. If you come to the Global Leadership Summit, way to go. Go where leadership is taught. You will always get something. Get around someone who is ahead of you. Ask them smart questions. Then roll up your sleeves. We have a value at Willow called "incessant tinkering." Try to make whatever you are leading 2% better every day. Do not ever go in and say, "It's going well. I now put it on autopilot." There is no autopilot allowed at Willow. It is always "incessant tinkering." We can make it available to a few more people. We can explain it better. We can take it up a notch. We can make this thing "fly" more economically. If you do that you will get better as a leader.
