Reflections on Generous Leadership

I’m honored to be this month's guest writer on Jennifer Jacobson’s website. Jennifer is an incredible woman of God and a beautiful model of generous leadership. As a Bible teacher and certified Strengths Finder™ Executive Coach, she has a rich understanding of the dynamics of generous leadership. She frequently shares her gifts and abilities to serve others as they lean into leadership. 

I'm surrounded generous leadership and have been for as long as I can remember. Both my Air Force and civilian careers have been marked by leaders who were open-handed in sharing their time and wisdom with me. My personal life has also been immeasurably characterized by incredibly generous people who have provided counsel, friendship, and love along the way. Their influence in my life has informed my journey and helped shape my insights.

I hope you'll take time to read the article, The Dynamics of Generous Leadership, on Jennifer’s site. Once you’ve read it, I’d love to hear some of your own thoughts regarding generous leadership.

Here are a few reflection questions for you after reading the article:

  • Who are the generous leaders in your life? Write down their names.

  • Choose one or two and write a short note or letter thanking them for their influence and generosity in your life.

  • Consider the people in your life right now. Who can you encourage through generous leadership?

Stay close to Him. Live beautiful.
