Key Takeaways

1) Many leaders spend a great deal of energy trying to “get back to the way things were” before 2020. Karl believes this effort will prove in vain.

2) You matter to God and others. Sometimes it’s enough to consistently “just be there” when someone is looking to you for guidance.

3) The lack of attention toward your personal, relational and marital health can no longer be avoided.

4) The most pressing thing today is the integrity issue we must get right as leaders. Too many are “glossing over” matters of the heart that need to be exposed and healed.
