How to Lead When You’re Not in Charge | The Unstuck Church Podcast Episode 40

What if Andy Stanley were your boss?

How would you handle that, really? When we sit lower on the org chart than a great leader, it’s easy to feel stuck on the sidelines waiting to be given more authority. That’s probably even more true when we serve under a not-so-great leader.

In this conversation, I talked with Clay Scroggins, lead pastor at North Point Church. He shared a little bit of his story finding his spot leading without the ultimate authority in his organization. I think every leader can learn something from his observations. Check it out.

In this episode, we discuss:

  • The difference between leadership and authority

  • How to leverage influence when you lack authority, position or title

  • Two key questions to be asking yourself to develop your leadership during the season you’re in now

We’ll be talking about practical ways to leverage influence when you lack authority this week on social media using #unstuckchurch. What questions do you have after listening to the episode? Tweet directly with Clay at @ClayScroggins.
