CIRCLE OF TRUST/BOM:
Today I wanted to share two leadership lessons that I’ve been learning over the last few years.
Solo Heroic -> Team Leadership
My tendency is to do things myself, not delegate, and work alone. This stems from trust issues, perfectionism, and other fears. But when the organization we lead grows and/or the people we are leading increases, we reach our limit and must move beyond solo heroic leadership. Also, God intends for us to work together. As a hand and foot have different functions, they must work together to make the body work.
L1 -> L2 -> L3 -> L4
Training and mentoring others does not come naturally to me. 3DM taught me a really helpful and simple way. L1 – I do, they watch. L2 – I do, they help. L3 – They do, I help. L4 – They do, I watch. My tendency is to go from L1 straight to L4. This short circuits the process and isn’t fair to the one I’m mentoring.
When going down the stairs we passed a man who asked if we were the “fabled men in black” who he’d heard of. We felt famous and secret agentish if only for a moment.
