Everyone needs encouragement; leaders included. As someone has said, encouragement is the fuel of the soul. A good friend of mine describes encouragement as ‘putting courage into someone’.

(Genesis 46:28-47:27)

One of the key characteristics of a strategic leader is the ability to see the future. Strategic leaders have both insight and foresight. They not only understand what is happening now and the implications, they have that rare ability to see or sense what is likely to happen. They have the ability to anticipate the future and to plan and prepare accordingly.

What is your purpose in life?

Genesis 42:1-45:27

It has probably been said more times than I can care to remember that every human being has a purpose why God has placed him or her here on this earth. There is a reason why each one of us was born. Put bluntly, God has a purpose for your life.
