Christian women in leadership. I have found that this is not a common topic in the world of leadership resources! My goal for recommending this resource is to share something that encouraged others who are like me – a woman in leadership.
Dare to Serve is an eight-session video series in which Cheryl Bachelder, CEO of Popeye’s Louisiana Chicken, shares how she became successful as a Christian woman in the business world by leading through serving. Servant leadership is sometimes seen as soft or ineffective, but this series shows how it is both challenging and tough-minded.
In each 8 to 10 minute-long video, Bachelder grounds Servant Leadership in biblical principles and shares how it has revolutionized her workplace, home, and community. If you are a Christian woman in ministry leadership, consider engaging other women in a small group using this video series. Even better, consider using it to mentor young ladies in your lives as they develop their gifts for leadership in God’s kingdom.
