It saddens me that I will not be able to attend my church's latest nationwide leadership conference. The said conference will be on the same day as the Open House of the school I work in (and where my kiddos go to school). Darn it.
Well, I know the basics of what great leadership is, and it's been modeled by the greatest leader of all time: Jesus Christ. Whether you're in business, you're employed, you're a parent, whatever...Jesus' leadership principles will bring you to sorely-needed excellence.
Andy Stanley, one of the best leadership communicators on the planet, awesomely summaries the gist of Jesus' leadership in one of his talks. I have a short clip of the talk below, and please check it out if you want to know, in a matter of a few minutes, how a leader should act.
I couldn't have said it better myself. If you want a book that studied how Jesus lead, I suggest Lead Like Jesus by Ken Blanchard. I actually lead a study on this, and it has allowed a lot of people realize what they've been doing wrong at the workplace.
Also, I am likely not able to make a blog entry of the upcoming Open House of the school I work in, because I'm responsible for some things and I'll be like a running headless chicken; but I welcome you to check out my entries of past Open House events. If you are on the hunt for a good school, then your search ends here.
Here's my son working on his Casa (preschool) Montessori material.
Here's my daughter working on her elementary material.
Then of course, the Erdkinder (high school) where I work and where my eldest is currently a freshman.
Other than here in Cagayan de Oro, we have campuses in Davao, Manila, and Cebu (see here for addresses). The campuses here and in Manila are full-fledged farm campuses, the only ones in the whole Asia-Pacific region that has the whole Montessori curriculum (from Infant Community to Erdkinder farm campus)
