Over the course of more than twenty years of leading churches and ministries, I’ve learned that a lot of the challenges in leadership aren’t about the people—they are about what happens between the people. About our relationships. About our systems of relationships.
I’ve learned that one person’s anxiety can infect, not only a leadership team, but an entire church. And I’ve seen one person’s non-anxiety restore that same team to a state of calmness and reason.
In this episode, I’m speaking with Steve Cuss, the author of Managing Leadership Anxiety. It’s a fantastic conversation about the way anxiety can affect, not only ourselves, but all those around us. We also talk about something called family systems theory, which has to do with recognizing and managing the anxiety in a system of relationships—be it a family, a church, a business, a baseball team, or school.
