I want to talk just for a second about leadership and the impact it can have in our lives every single day!
It doesn’t take much, just a little effort and interest in what’s going on with people we encounter every single day. It can be powerful and it can be so impactful. In short, it can make a difference. But you have to make that effort! You’ve got to do it!
Here’s what you got to do: You have to develop leaders!
When you read one or two pages out of a book on leadership and use it to grow your team. Grab somebody and sit them down and tie it to what’s going on with them and their work. It’s non-stop talking and you will learn more when you teach that page or two pages out of a book and they will appreciate that. You can’t take an hour and a half, just take about 10 to 15 minutes. Do that all the time with people. Lunchtime … take a different person every week, take two people. Tell them, ‘Guys we’re going to talk about one subject and we’re going to hammer this one subject. You’d be surprised over a couple years how much you can put into somebody.
Last thing today, John Maxwell comments that a biblical principle can do as much in a person’s life as a biblical chapter and verse. But, the principle is Jesus, the principle is God. You realize that and it sets you free to talk to anybody! SHICKYBOOMYOW!
