How Leaders Lead

Posted by Regi Campbell on August 22, 2016

Every day, I’m more aware of the influence people have on other people. Leaders are people who have influence and use it for a purpose. Leaders are always leading . . . in one direction or the other. In truth, leadership is really more about the ‘who’ than the ‘what.’ We in the church have…

“You’re Fired”

Posted by Regi Campbell on March 7, 2016

“You’re Fired.” It looked easy when ‘The Donald’ did it on his reality show The Apprentice. And maybe it is for him. In the real world, it’s tougher. Few people say or hear those exact words. It’s usually “we’re reorganizing” or “we’re being forced to downsize.” Occasionally, someone hears the words “we’re letting you go.” It’s usually…

Start a Business? Not So Fast . . . (Part II)

Posted by Regi Campbell on February 8, 2016

Rushing to entrepreneurship can be awful. Last post, we began a discussion on starting a business with a litany of reasons not to do it . . . or at least to go slow. Here are a few more to consider with a note of encouragement at the end. Don’t start without enough capital –…

When Is Advice Taken As Criticism?

Posted by Regi Campbell on January 18, 2016

Have you ever been in a conversation with someone and had a light come on . . . like “Hey, I’ve been where he is. I can help this guy. I know what he should do.” As soon as there’s a break in the conversation, you share your advice only to get a terse look…

So What’s Normal?

Posted by Regi Campbell on July 2, 2015

I’ve never been much of a history guy. I’m always looking ahead rather than behind. But years ago, one of my business partners taught me this principle: “The best predictor of future behavior is past behavior.” I’ve found that, short of surrender to Jesus and the involvement of God in the heart, people don’t change…

Hustle

Posted by Regi Campbell on January 22, 2015

If I didn’t love hustle, I wouldn’t love mentoring younger guys so much. In this ‘staid and stoic’ stage of life, hustle is fun to see and be around. I recently sat before Jon Acuff, a young preacher’s kid who has amassed a huge tribe in the world of social media. He defined hustle as…

Hope is Not a Strategy

Posted by Regi Campbell on December 18, 2014

A lot of us dance on the edge of optimism and carelessness. “I’ll figure something out” has come out of my mouth more times than I want to admit. Sometimes it’s the only workable plan. But it’s also a way to ‘kick the can’ down the road and deal with stuff later. “Hope is not…

How to Lead When You’re Not in Charge

Posted by Daniel Kosmala on November 6, 2014

Yesterday in Atlanta, we gathered our men together for a time of crafting community and learning. Clay Scroggins, the Campus Pastor for Browns Bridge Community Church, shared a message on “How to Lead When You’re Not in Charge”. The content shared was both poignant and practical. Below is our ‘net out’ of what Clay said….

The Partial Fool

When I run across a principle that’s helpful, I write about it here. When I find one that’s particularly helpful, I might write about it twice. Dr. Henry Cloud’s teaching on dealing with foolish people is one of those. Refresher: The definition of a foolish man is one who doesn’t evaluate his experience and doesn’t…

Three Kinds of People

Posted by Regi Campbell on September 15, 2014

My friend John (yes, him again!) points me to a book I’d overlooked . . . a book by Dr. Henry Cloud called Necessary Endings. In Chapter 7, the book goes deep on the triage that’s been around for as long as there’ve been thinking people. Proverbs describes wise, foolish and evil people. Here’s how…
