113: Why "Leading Small" Matters & How to Do it Well

Our culture and our world sets us up to believe that the value of what you do in life is related to the size of what you do. Therefore, leadership can often be seen as ‘unimportant’ if it’s on a smaller scale or with small numbers. But we believe that “leading small” is an important opportunity and can have a big impact.

In this episode, Holly and I are talking about leading small--what this means, why it’s important, and how to navigate it well. If you’ve ever felt like what you are doing or how you are currently leading is less valuable because it’s “small”, be sure to take a listen.


Key Points Discussed:

  • What “Leading Small” Means
  • Why Leading Small Matters
  • How to navigate leading small well
  • Ways to invest in your leadership while you lead small
    • Learn to develop your discernment in decision making
    • Figure out your motives
    • Create healthy habits and figure out your baseline
    • Find those who supplement your weakness and create a “cabinet” of trusted friends for the long haul
    • Grow in integrity
    • Learn to love those you lead when they are unloveable, difficult, or “unleadable”
