Balancing leadership and humility — and Keeping Jesus first

When Christian professionals “talk more of leadership strategies and career plans than, say, love, humility or excellence,” they are forgetting an integral element of faith, according to Jo Kadlecek, journalist-in-residence at Gordon College.
