Did Jesus make leadership mistakes?

We currently live in a chaotic world. It is a time of daily surprises that seem to tear at the fabric of our society. Many are perplexed. Many are looking around, desperately wanting for leadership in the places they live, work and learn. What kind of leadership can those who center their life on the teachings of Christ give? Is it different? Is it better? When one takes a hard look at how Jesus led, it is shockingly different from the ways of the world, and from a lot of what is promoted within the Christian church as leadership. If held up to current standards and wisdom, it looks like Jesus made a lot of leadership mistakes. Nancy Ortberg who has led in business, non-profit and church spheres had some fantastic and challenging perspectives on this for all who came to Q Commons Sacramento in the Fall of 2016. As a leader, you are encouraged to stay curious, think well and advance good. Watch and share this video with others who want to find one another and lead in a different and better way.
