Leadership Lessons And Quotes From Justice League

A Reel Leadership Article

Whenever I hear about a DC Comics movie, I become nervous. They’ve not had the best track record in translating comic books into movies. Though, they have gotten better over the years.

With recent movies like Suicide Squad, Batman Vs. Superman, and Wonder Woman DC Comics is making a name for itself in the comic book to movie world.

Leadership lessons and quotes from Justice League the movie

Walking into Justice League, I was excited yet hesitant. Would the movie critics be right? Or would DC Comics pull off the impossible and have a well-done comic book movie?

Thankfully I found out for you. DC Comics did an amazing job bringing the Justice League to life. Seeing Batman (Ben Affleck), Wonder Woman (Gal Gadot), Aquaman (Jason Momoa of Baywatch), Flash (Ezra Miller), Cyborg (Ray Fisher), and Superman (Henry Cavill) join forces to defeat the coming threat of Steppenwolf (Ciarán Hinds) was amazing.

5 Thoughts On Sneezing Jesus By Brian Hardin

Sneezing Jesus: How God Redeems Our Humanity

I have to say I was intrigued when I received the book, Sneezing Jesus. The title is intriguing. What could Sneezing Jesus be about?

The book asks the question: Are you ready to be human? This seems counterintuitive. After all, aren’t we all human?

We need to sneeze Jesus

Sneezing Jesus delves into this question and more. And reveals truths that you may not have thought about before.

Within the first few pages of Sneezing Jesus, Hardin had me hooked. He makes the point that Jesus saddled Himself with indigestion and urination and all manner of humanness. Too often, we overlook Jesus’ human-side as we look at His divine side.

But where does this take us? What do Jesus’ indigestion and urination and other bodily functions have to do with being human? More importantly, what does it have to do with us spreading Jesus’ love to others?

How To Assemble A Support System

Even leaders need help

One of the hardest things for a leader to do is to ask for help. Too many new leaders see this asking for help as a sign of weakness.

Break that thought pattern. Being willing to seek out the advice and support of others isn’t weakness. No, doing so is  a strength.

As you step into the role of a leader, you have to know how to assemble a support system.

great leaders require a support system

What A Healthy Support System Looks Like

We’ve been lied to. We’ve been fed the lie leadership is a lonely battle.

Well, that’s true but only if we let leadership be lonely.

You have a choice. You can cultivate a healthy support system and be an effective leader. To do so, you have to surround yourself with people who will hold you up when you are weak.

Leadership Lessons And Quotes From Hacksaw Ridge

A Reel Leadership Article

Hacksaw Ridge is the story of WWII American Army Medic Desmond T. Doss, played by Andrew Garfield, who served during the Battle of Okinawa. Doss refused to wield a weapon or harm another person.

For this, his commanding officer had him court-martialed and attempted to expel him from the military.

Thankfully for those he was serving with, he wasn’t dishonorably discharged. By the end of the Battle of Okinawa, Doss had pulled 75 men from Hacksaw Ridge.

Because of his heroic efforts, Doss became the first Conscientious Objector in American history to be awarded the Medal of Honor.

 

When I first heard the story of Doss, I couldn’t believe a man could be in the army and not pick up a weapon. This would seem like a given, even if he were to never shoot the gun.
