Courageous leadership is clear.

A courageous leader is unapologetically clear about who she is, the difference she is committed to make in the world, and her values and priorities. The clearer you are as a leader, the clearer people around you become.

And, therein lies the problem.

As pastors, we don’t always like what that clarity reveals. As you become more and more clear as a leader, more and more people will decide they’re not willing to go where you’re headed.

Stay foggy and many will stay with you, wandering around in impotent ambiguity.
