Every leader needs to be constantly striving to learn more to help grow as a leader. Over time as a leader you begin to develop a leadership toolbox. These are the books, website, words of wisdom, thoughts, prayers, or people of influence that add to the collection of wisdom within you. If a leader isn't adding to their toolbox on a regular basis, that leader will become stagnant in their growth. As a result their leadership influence will also grow stagnant. As Small Group Leaders at Heartland Alliance Church we want to be intentional about putting resources into our leadership toolbox. Throughout the year, we will be adding to this page great resources to help you fill your toolbox.
