On Leadership is a super-series produced by Reach Australia on key leadership skills for the pastor or ministry worker. Each episode Craig Hamilton, author of Wisdom In Leadership helps us dig into some key leadership principles for your ministry team. Craig says: ‘If you find yourself unable to listen carefully and patiently, and if the temptation to dispense with wisdom and give advice is simply too strong for you to overcome, you will increasingly find yourself talking about the wrong things and giving advice that doesn’t help. you will find yourself doing a lot of talking but not actually talking to the right people about the right problems.’ This episode digs into how to listen well.
