Out of My Mind (with credit – and apologies - to Joe Bayly)
Many years ago I had the privilege to meet Joe Bayly and to learn from him. Joe was an editor for ETERNITY magazine (no longer published); in it he wrote a monthly column titled Out of My Mind. Each column was a journey with Joe’s mind as he mused about life around him, the experiences he encountered and the outcomes he observed. He was especially insightful as he saw Christians live what they perceived to be their calling.
It was apparent that Joe’s ‘mind’ was closely connected to his ‘heart’ and he worked at being sure there was an integrity that linked our minds/hearts and our words and behaviors. I learned much as he challenged us to think freshly. And so I will try to share some of my musings about leadership and organizational dynamics; I suspect that often it may lead to diversions that may be much more personal observations. But then, being a leader is as much about WHO you are as it is about WHAT you do.
