Emotional Healthy Leadership Begins With This Core Trait—And Free Conference

Categories Ministry

Whether you're a volunteer group leader, professor, or pastor, Christ's church needs emotionally healthy leaders to bring the transformation people desperately need. Peter Scazzero wants to help you become emotionally healthy with a free live streaming conference, The Emotionally Healthy Leadership Conference.

This conference is designed for leaders eager to lead differently, ready to integrate two missing components in today’s church—emotional health and contemplative spirituality, teaching a core trait of an emotionally healthy leader: the art of paying attention.

The Core Trait of Emotionally Healthy Leaders

Paying attention is the core of the Christian life, because it is necessary if we are going to know God. It’s also crucial for leading and loving people. Scazzero explains in a recent sermon:

Without this discipline you can’t love people. To give your attention to someone who is suffering is a rare and difficult thing to do. It’s the rarest and most precious form of generosity.

Etty Hillesum is someone who learned to pay attention, a Jew who died in Auschwitz and kept a journal of her experience. Her writings show she knew how to pay attention. Somehow she saw beauty in the midst of horror. Scazzero says in the same sermon that’s the invitation for leaders:

Despite whatever setback or difficulty you find yourself, beauty and the love of God is somewhere following you. If you pay attention you’ll catch glimpses of it.

Learn this core trait and a lot more at his free livestream event and in his new book, The Emotionally Healthy Leader. In it Scazzero shows leaders how to develop a deep, inner life with Christ, examining its profound implications for surviving stress, planning and decision making, creating healthy culture, and much more.
