In this episode, we apply the concepts of authority, leadership, and submission to the context of crisis and difficulty. In the midst of crisis, panic is too easily the first response. We discuss how leaders can be sober minded, tethered, and communicative when diagnosing the issue and implementing solutions. Often times when there is acute or chronic pain within an organization, we can jump to solutions or responses that cause us to lose sight of the goal. When leaders remember to own what they should (not all that they could) and resist the temptation to micromanage, this will keep them more steadily fixed on the organization’s goal. As we lead through this imperfect world, we encourage you to lean into the community of those leading with you within the organization or in similar organizations, and we encourage you to fix your eyes on Christ – the ruler of all – and have hope in his faithfulness.
