Exploiting Momentum

26 Dec


For our first few installments of the Momentum Leadership Community, we’ll be digging in to the book Spiritual Leadership by J. Oswald Sanders. This will give all of us a good opportunity to share our thoughts.

One quote that caught my attention in the book was when Sanders noted that a leader “knows how to exploit momentum” (p. 31).

Do you agree with this?

What does it mean to exploit momentum?

How do we identify the momentum in our life?

What about negative momentum? How do we exploit that as a leader?

One example that comes to my mind is the story of Matt Chandler. Matt is the Lead Pastor of The Village Church. At age 35, he found out he had a brain tumor that required surgery. On the eve of his surgery, not knowing what his future held, whether he would live or die, he created this video message for his church body:

His message regarding Hebrews 11:35 is inspiring and challenging.

So where is your momentum? Which direction is it pointing you? How can you as a leader exploit it for the glory of God?

Share your thoughts with the community.
