Recently, Kevin White, the CEO of Spirit Media, challenged our staff in core values for effective leadership. As we celebrated the formation of three departments: sales, production, and operations, Kevin trained our new department leaders in front of the whole company. Kevin pointed out that department heads are to embody these core values. His point was that these values are not just for department heads but for the whole company. 

Today’s value is to be a problem solver.

ICEBREAKER: Discuss a recent problem you solved. 

  1. Cooking for family 
  2. Driving someone without a license
  3. Fixing a leaking roof 
  4. Discovering cure for cancer

Leadership and Business are about solving problems.

Nonprofits solve problems.

“For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.”

Sin is a huge problem.

  1. Man has a problem called sin.
  2. God has a plan named Jesus.
  3. We have a choice.

‭‭Genesis‬ ‭1‬:‭2‬-‭3‬ (‭NIV‬‬)

“Now the earth was formless and empty, darkness was over the surface of the deep, and the Spirit of God was hovering over the waters. And God said, “Let there be light,” and there was light.”

God solves problems.

Darkness us a huge problem. 

‭‭Isaiah‬ ‭60‬:‭1‬-‭7‬ (‭NLT‬‬)

““Arise, Jerusalem! Let your light shine for all to see. For the glory of the Lord rises to shine on you. Darkness as black as night covers all the nations of the earth, but the glory of the Lord rises and appears over you. All nations will come to your light; mighty kings will come to see your radiance. “Look and see, for everyone is coming home! Your sons are coming from distant lands; your little daughters will be carried home. Your eyes will shine, and your heart will thrill with joy, for merchants from around the world will come to you. They will bring you the wealth of many lands. Vast caravans of camels will converge on you, the camels of Midian and Ephah. The people of Sheba will bring gold and frankincense and will come worshiping the Lord. The flocks of Kedar will be given to you, and the rams of Nebaioth will be brought for my altars. I will accept their offerings, and I will make my Temple glorious.”

God solves problems.

If you’re a follower, no one can’t necessarily force you to lead. Leadership is a choice. Some are born with a natural ability to influence others and lead.

VPs vs Managers is VPs solve problems. It’s possible for a manager to manage/maintain/follow but not necessarily solve problems. Most people follow. Some people lead. They develop. They solve problems.
