When 2020 began, the world could not have predicted what headlines would be written mere months later. From global environmental disasters to the COVID-19 pandemic and the necessary and challenging conversations about racial equity—these are only a few of the most influential events of 2020. 
The one thing United States citizens had predicted was the 2020 presidential election, and it’s even more apparent that in a state of emergency, people look to leaders to guide them through uncertain times. “It is the calling of the leader to help people be able to hear God’s truth in the midst of the cacophony of competing voices,” says Peter Vogt, dean of Bethel Seminary. Leaders impact every aspect of society—both nationally and neighborly—and there are certain qualities that define good leadership, especially when encountering crisis.
At least, that’s what Professor of Christian Thought David Clark and Program Director of Transformational Leadership Mark McCloskey teach in their seminary classes. Last spring, they had a conversation about what it means to be a good leader with a strong biblical foundation. Here is what they had to say:
David Clark: When I went to seminary, Mark, honestly, we did not really discuss leadership at …

WILBRAHAM — No. 1 Minnechaug girls volleyball coach Mark Taylor admitted this season has been different than most.“The rituals that we’ve had in practice for about the last four years, of what we would do every day, have been fully stretched,” he said. “We only have one court to practice on, and we usually get two. Nowadays, we only practice for an hour-and-15 minutes while before it was for at least two-and-a-half hours.”COVID-19 has made it where the girls have to go with what they know and go from there.”After falling into an early hole against No. 4 Longmeadow Tuesday evening, the Falcons proved their coach right by claiming the next three sets and the match (24-26, 25-22, 25-15, 25-22) at home.Chelsea Foulis helped Minnechaug remain unbeaten at 6-0 with 12 kills and 13 digs, while Isabella Arcidiacono earned a game-high 26 assists. Leah Kagan, for her part, contributed with seven digs.“I have never been known to be quiet,” said Foulis, regarding her on-the-court motivation. “I also think it’s hard to be quiet when you’re 6-foot-2.

the dallas cowboys have plenty of problems, but leadership is down the list

BEGIN ARTICLE PREVIEW:

Jaylon Smith’s back was to the ball. He had no idea where it was when he plowed into Washington’s Logan Thomas, forcing an incompletion.The Cowboys linebacker immediately began clapping to celebrate his play.The official immediately threw his flag, calling Smith for a 19-yard pass interference penalty.Did Smith regard stopping the reception as some sort of victory? Was he inspiring his teammates to new heights?Was that leadership?Smith symbolizes much of what’s wrong with Dallas at this 2-5 moment. Inconsistent performance. A detachment from competitive reality. A willingness to celebrate small victories when battles are being lost.This isn’t a swipe — just hoping to eradicate negative energy, as the linebacker would say — at Smith. It’s a jumping-off point to explore a topic that’s gained traction in recent days.Part of the reason the Cowboys find themselves in this bind, the theory goes, is that they lack strong leadership among the players. An argument is made that Dallas would somehow be better off if it had more players who were willing to get in the face of their teammates and chew them out. The passive response after Washington’s Jon Bostic knocked …

Leadership matters, Cramer said, and having the right leader at a company can make all the difference.A case in point is Advanced Micro Devices  (AMD) – Get Report, under the leadership of Lisa Su.

The company also just announced the acquisition of Xilinx  (XLNX) – Get Report for $35 billion.
