Find a Mentor!
Doesn’t matter how much you know, there is always someone that can teach you something more. This is a very strong factor for Innovative Ministry Leader. We try to have as many Mentors that we can. This is a way to have accountability in what you are doing, plus someone to help raise the bar from time to time.
Another best practice is surrounding yourself with the right people. This could be going to a Network Lunches with other leaders in your field, making sure you hire people with the right skills and personality, or just seeking information over lunch with some that is successful in your area.
Don’t ever hesitate to ask someone successful for help. Most of the times people that are doing well, love to sit down and pour into someone else.
