Every Tuesday since late 2009, I have featured another leader in my 10 question interview series. You can read all of them HERE. I’ve enjoyed this series and while there are a few leaders I am still hoping to interview, I decided I wanted to hear from another great leader:
Y O U
You are a leader. If you are reading this post, you most likely are the type that others follow. You may not even know that you are a leader, but I can almost assure you that you are to someone. It could be employees, volunteers, friends or family, but someone is watching what you do and your influence in their life is changing the way they live. I call that leadership.
So today I’m interviewing YOU!
Here’s how it works. Copy and past these questions into a comment on this post and then answer the questions. It shouldn’t take long to answer each one. I’m anxious to hear your answers.
Answer well. I hope to choose some of them as feature posts on this blog. I can’t pick all of them and may not pick any, but if you are adding value in your answers for others, I may pick yours. (Please don’t be offended if I don’t use yours. It’s not an indication that you are not a good leader or had good answers, just that it didn’t necessarily register with me at the time.)
So, here are the questions….copy, paste, and answer:
If your comment is chosen for a guest post, I will share some general information about you before getting to the questions, such as position, church, and blog.
- When you were growing up, are you doing what you thought you would be doing vocationally? If not, what did you want to do?
- What’s the most different job you’ve had from what you are doing now and how did that job help you with what you are doing now?
- Who is one person, besides Christ, who most helped to shape your leadership and how did they help you?
- Besides the Bible, what is one book that has most helped to shape your thought process in life and ministry?
- What are three words other people would use to describe your work style/ethic?
- What is your greatest strength in leadership?
- What is your greatest weakness in leadership?
- What is the hardest thing you have to do in leadership?
- What is one misconception about your leadership position you think people may have?
- If you could give one piece of advice to young leaders from what you’ve learned by experience, what would it be?
Have you enjoyed the interview series?
