"Grace Under Pressure"

McKinsey Consulting is the crème de la crème of the consulting business. To employ McKinsey is serious business. What do their clients worry about?
  • Geopolitics
  • Technology
  • Cyber Security
  • Shift coming in economic power

What does that shift in economic power mean? It implies that in fifteen years there will be 2.2 billion people in the so-called Middle Class on this planet. That is a huge uptick!

McKinsey would say that leaders do not fear change but embrace it. They learn from adversity. They do things by design not by default. They are perpetual learners. They celebrate success. They have a sense of humor.

Every congregation I have served has leaders, followers, critics, and comics! As a leader in the Church, I deal in power currencies; connectional, relational and structural. Consistently, I pray for imperturbability, grace under pressure.

Warren Buffet said leaders need three attributes; integrity, intelligence and energy. Please don’t miss this, he added, without integrity, the other two are useless!

This a the imperative that drives me; Dream something big enough so that unless God is in it, it is impossible and will fail.
