Topics covered:

Attentive to God
If we are going to lead well our leadership has to emerge from the right source. That source is the Holy Trinity. But what has the Holy Trinity to do with leadership?

Attentive to the heart
Great leaders are lovers of God and the people they lead. Therefore the health of our inner world is critical. Jesus shows us the way with his inner life shaping all he did through the cross and resurrection.

Attentive to decision making
Everyone loves their leader until they start making decisions. Decision making is pivotal in leadership so what do we need to be attentive to in the process of decision making.

Attentive to the imagination
The pictures, dreams and visions that go through your head on a regular basis will mediate your leadership to the people you lead. What needs to be in our imaginations so we may lead well?
