Leadership Foundations

Dave Hillis and Cornelius Williams, President of Resurgence Leadership Foundation in Atlanta, joined host (and CCIC Trustee Council member) Anne Snyder on “The Whole Person Revolution” podcast. In this episode, Dave, Cornelius, and Anne have a conversation about the issues in cities that LF is trying to address, the importance of relational leadership, why LF works to build systems for service providers to work together instead of building another program, and the deep theological meaning behind the way LF tries to see the city as a playground instead of a battleground.

“The Whole Person Revolution” is a product of Breaking Ground, a collaborative web commons that seeks to inspire a dynamic ecosystem of thinkers and doers to respond to the needs of the world’s current realities.

What book, movie, quote, or tv show has most shaped your understanding of leadership or the city?   

A quote that has shaped my understanding of leadership and the city is, “Do not be daunted by the enormity of the world’s grief. Do justly now, love mercy now, walk humbly now. You are not obligated to complete the work, but neither are you free to abandon it.”

While the amount of work there is to do to transform cities is great, this quote reminds me that we are freed from having to complete it all, though our obligation to continue remains. We may never see a huge transformation in our lifetime. The work stretches far beyond us. However, this does not make our acts of faithfulness in the day to day less significant, no matter how small they may seem.
