I enjoy a good breakfast – especially if the coffee is good! And I have a small town cafe I enjoy that is great for meetings and working. Good food, they keep your coffee cup full, they have wi-fi and the booths are great for spreading out and working.
The key is, that I try to have those breakfasts with young leaders. I have found that talking over a simple meal, especially in the morning, it is a great time to get at the heart of a matter. People are fresh & not consumed with the worries of the day and something about sharing a meal breaks down artificial barriers. This has been some of my most productive coaching times.
My question for you – are you having these times with young leaders? Are you investing into helping someone grow and have greater impact in the Kingdom? If not, start scheduling a couple of breakfasts a month to invest in helping a young leader grow. It will be a greater blessing to you than to them!
Have a great & blessed weekend,
