On Leaders

James K.A. Smith recently interviewed Michael Lindsay, president of Gordon College. The interview offers some fascinating information on leadership and the value of mentors. On the importance of mentors Lindsay says,

What does matter is the formative influence of an adult who speaks into your life and who has a sustaining relationship with you that you carry with you.
