Isolation, Complexity, Exhaustion, and Discouragement (ICED) are a debilitating combination for any leader. Let all of them arrive at once (as they often do) and many go under. This becomes more likely when we have been in leadership for 15 years and as we approach our mid-40s. The first rule of leading anything is that we have to be spiritually alive. Come and explore how to remain fresh in the Lord when the wearying pressures start to rise.
