Insight on leadership

Here is my leadership thought this week.

In leadership we help release people to grow in capacity for God’s glory.

“To him who loves us and has freed us from our sins by his blood, 6and has made us to be a kingdom and priests to serve his God and Father—to him be glory and power for ever and ever! Amen.”

Rev 1:5 – 6

We are working with kingdom priests! WOW! They have been released from sin by His blood. They have awesome capacity!

In leadership we can easily hold people captive through wrong assumptions and a control approach that communicates our lack of trust or personal insecurity. We need empowered teams free to go beyond our personal capacity. They need kingdom perspective, space to exercise their gifts, encouragement, coaching and appropriate accountability that builds for growth.
