Dave Fleming on the struggles of leadership

This is an excellent entry about the perils being a leader that gets looked up to all the time. Anyone who is in leadership that has people that are actually close to him/her probably has those people who will “tell it like it is”…for most of us it is our spouse which is good. perhaps the hard thing is hot just having people in our lives who “tell it like it is” but we need to have a small enough ego that we are willing to humbly accept the criticism when it comes.

we are doing some discussion in our community leadership and small neighborhood groups on what it means to be a communty that healthily deals with conflict…its a tough thing to have the maturity to hear a complaint/suggestion without reacting poorly (either by taking it too personally or writing it off all together).
