Embedded Leaders

Submitted by James Higginbotham on August 5, 2009 – 4:44 amNo Comment

Every volunteer in your team is a potential leader.

You have two choices: allow them to lead, or suppress their leadership.

Allowing them to lead means allowing things to happen in ways you don’t expect. It means letting others do things in a way you don’t want them done. It means allowing the skills and gifts God has given to flow through someone other than you. It means giving up the glory and serving their needs.

The other option is suppressing their leadership.  It means not letting someone find a new or different way of accomplishing the same outcome.It means not allowing others to use their skills. It means living in yesterday, not tomorrow.

How do you plan to lift up your team’s embedded leaders?
