The Courage Required to Finish Strong

Leadership is tough.

You will face bitter criticism, heart-breaking disappointments. You will likely face the reinvention of your organisation; and the reinvention of your leadership style. You’ll have difficult succession conversations.

All these things are tough… but you must keep going.  We need ONGOING COURAGE.

Aim for the end; aim to finish the race. “Fight the good fight… finish the race… keep the faith” (2 Timothy 4:7). You gotta know this: God saves some of the sweetest things for the very end!


Adapted from “The Courage That Leadership Requires” by Bill Hybels at the Global Leadership Summit 2013. Part 6.
