The Association of American Medical Colleges paints a rather survivalistic approach as to how to get through medical school. Below are the 'highlights' of those tips and how to use your incredible specific medical field gift from the Lord in the workplace.
1. Attend all the orientation programming- Seems like common sense, right?
2. Identify and build relationships with mentors- Also amazing advice, what better way to get acclimated than someone who has already done exactly what you're doing and give you some much needed insight.
3. Take an active role in your learning experience- While it may seem as though you are drowning for lack of better words, you may feel less like this by inserting yourself fully into the program via getting to know others, not just submersing yourself in the work aspect of it.
4. Foster a team environment- Also very key in the medical field, teamwork.
5. Take care of your physical and mental health- So important, possibly one of the most important on this list!

For his new book, The Top 10 Leadership Conversations in the Bible, Steve Moore states that, "my objective in this book is to stimulate your passion to engage the Bible as a primary source for leadership insight.”
Moore and his team have worked rigorously to find all 1,090 representations of leadership in the Bible and documented them accordingly. Not only is the book helpful with its diagrams & images, but it breaks down what it really means to both lead and follow biblically. As he walks through each example, he asks us, as potential leaders to reflect and to look at the Bible's examples in passages by analyzing,
1. Who is the leader?
2. Who is the follower? and finally,
3. What is the situation?
Steve also has a website for the book itself where you can create an account and have the first chapter '00' sent to you via e-mail. Also, Scatter Global is featured along with Chapter 11 of the book, so make sure to sign up to receive the download!
Not only is biblical leadership revealed when you access the book, but readers can actually access a database of thousands of biblical leadership conversations for FREE.
On this same site, you can also access a Biblical Centered Leadership Development Planner to know how to tangibly make next steps to becoming a better leader. Among many pearls of wisdom, Steve also mentions a key point to leadership being, “I believe influence, not position is at the core of leadership.”
This downloadable version offers an array of helpful tools, and over 10 pages of free insight into God centered leadership conversations.
