Ever had to lead during a time of change? At home, at work..in the church?
It’s almost a trick question. Most of us take a leadership role in some area of our lives. And when we own something as the leader, the one accountable for things, then we often want to make changes and improve things.

3. “We’ve Got This All Figured Out. Trust Me.” (Know It All)
