A Developing Thought
Take this quick quiz! What do leaders do?
Well, most would say that leaders equip others, strategically guide, make courageous decisions, boldly define current reality, set vision, etc.
Recently, in talking with Greg Henson, president of Sioux Falls Seminary, he pushed me to think about a different task necessary for those of us who lead. In Greg’s terms, leaders DEVELOP others. They work with those in their sphere of influence to build relationships that allow them to speak into those core issues of transformation and growth.
Though written for the context of theological education, I think Greg’s recent blog informs us well of this needed move toward people development.
