82: Three Shifts You Need to Make as a Christian Leader and How to Make Them

Sometimes the smallest shift can make a world of difference. And as a leader, there are times when you need to make a shift in your life or leadership so that you can become more effective and fulfill your purpose.


In this episode, I’m sharing with you the 3 shifts you may need to make in order to become a better Christian leader this year. Shift is my word for this year, but even if shift is not your word for the year, I believe this episode will help you as you continue to grow and develop as a Christian woman leader.


I have a free worksheet, which actually turned into more of a guide, that goes along with this episode. You can get it by texting SHIFT to (202) 410-4202.
