Leadership and loneliness

Wanted to let you know we just finished my latest podcast. Some of the highlights are below and I’ve embedded a player so you can listen to it right from this post.



  • Leadership and loneliness –  “But, in leadership you carry a weight and responsibility which can drive you to a very lonely place. A healthy leader will allow this loneliness to drive them to a greater dependence on God.”
  • Loneliness is unavoidable but leaders are also at fault for making assumptions that lead them into more loneliness.
  • “Your past is not really your past if it’s still impacting your present.”

    Hi there

    Great episode. We as leadership have gone through much hurt in the past with people abandoning. There definitively is the danger to withdraw. Still, as a very introverted person, I would like to add that God is a relational God. He is three. And he decided to work through teams as pointed out in Eph 4:11-16 and the whole church as seen in 1Pe 2:9 and 1Co 12:28 and so many more places.

    I therefore believe in relationship and relational leadership strongly and recommend to develop in this direction to all my fellow introverts – not letting go of their strenghts as they are much needed.
