One of my favorite books on leadership and emotional health is Peter Scazerro’s Emotionally Healthy Spirituality. I highly recommend adding this book to your summer reading list.
I also love inventory lists, and this morning, I found Scazerro’s list for evaluating the health of your leadership. It’s a great list, and if you click here, you can check out his blog and the list.
In particular, I’m interested in how I respond with greater clarity in the midst of tension. This is an area I’m excited to continue to grow in. When I’m in a very tense relational situation, a mark of differentiated leadership is the ability to think clearly, stay calm, and rise above everyone’s emotions.
I also love his question about “managing triggers” that create stress in your life.
