Support Your Local Leader

Submitted by James Higginbotham on September 14, 2009 – 4:52 amNo Comment

Are you leading sideways? Many times, we are so focused on leading upward (to those we report to) and downward (to those we manage) that we forget to lead sideways.

Leading sideways means that we need to spend time listening to the needs of the leaders next to us.

Leading sideways means that we need to be willing to join up with others to accomplish something bigger than a single team can do.

Leading sideways means coaching one another as we lead our teams through the great and the difficult times.

Take some time to consider where you could help out another leader. Perhaps it is simply listening and praying. Perhaps it involves assistance or some time coaching one another.  Whatever it is, be willing to open your eyes and ears to what is happening alongside you and your team.
