33 Lessons On Tribal Leadership I Learned From Casey Graham

“Funding Is A Front For Friendship.” – Casey Graham

Casey Graham, Founder and CEO of Giving Rocket, is an incredible leader!  I just spent the last two days with him as our organization, Injoy Stewardship Solutions, sponsored the Giving Rocket Tour.  This nationwide series of events will help church leaders across the country experience victory in the areas of personal finance, weekly giving, and capital campaigns. 

Casey does not have customers and clients.  He has a very loyal following.  Casey has a tribe.  After watching him interact with these leaders, the following are the lessons on tribal leadership that I learned from him.  These lessons are making me a better leader.  Apply them and you will see the loyalty of those you serve increase as well.
