It Takes A Team   1 comment


Miami Heat

What would it be like if a university tried to play a football game with one person on the team?  Or how would it work if the Miami Heat decided to release all of their players except Lebron James and finish the season with only him?  These ideas seem absurd but unfortunately too many times leaders choose to try to go it alone.  They try to be the visionary, the implementor, the public relations officer, and fill every other position within the organization.  In almost every situation, they fail.

I was reminded last night of the great value of a team.  The ability to sit together and discuss ideas.  The opportunity to think outside the box but have members of the team to rein you in when necessary.  The great value of having challengers, supporters, those who encourage, those who question, those who add to the dreaming, is truly a value that cannot be measured.

If you are a leader, make sure you have a team.  If you are a leader, make sure your team is following the Lord.
