The Art of Self-Leadership

Before you can take your leaders to the next level, you need to focus on taking your leadership to the next level. You’ll always struggle to lead others unless you first learn to lead yourself! But you can’t do it alone.

I was mentored. I got lucky. One of my professors called me once a month for 25 years after I left seminary… and he wasn’t the only mentor in my life. Unfortunately, I’ve found that I was the exception. Most leaders are not mentored. But to be fair – this is perhaps because most leaders don’t pursue mentoring. 

Nexus’ secret sauce is our Leader Care (coaching, mentoring, training, community, and accountability.) We’re focused on developing you. Leader Care is the difference between stagnation and growth, and at the upcoming ThinkNEXT, we will help you drill down on the nuts and bolts of mentoring and being mentored. 

Come sit in on an open conversation with 3 of my current mentors to learn the Art of Self-Leadership. We will explore such nuts and bolts topics as:

  • Our need for self-leadership
  • Dynamics of practical spirituality
  • Paths in pursuit of wisdom
  • Crafting a life of study
  • Fostering a sense of life mission

Phil Claycomb

Executive Director of Nexus

Phil and Barb started their first church straight out of seminary and consider themselves missionaries to the North American continent. Their first assignment was to “start a church for unchurched people using only unchurched people to do it.” It was an exciting ride… The Claycombs stayed in hands-on church planting for 13 years, planting two churches which each planted a daughter church. In 2001 Phil and Barb transitioned into a coaching and training role, helping other church planters pursue their own callings. Phil worked with Stadia: new church strategies from 2001-2005. The Claycomb’s moved to Texas in 2006 and launched Nexus: church planting leadership. Phil and Barb enjoy working together to support church-planting couples and families.
