What’s a Leader to Do?
Here are some guidelines to help you balance the tension between the individual and the group.
1. Pray for God to give you wisdom from thoughts others have to share as well as your own thoughts.
2. Take each situation as a process that is unfolding, and remain open to consider the needs of the organization and the needs of the individual as these come to be understood.
3. See in every complicated leadership situation the opportunity to explore your own humility by sharing leadership with followers.
4. Recognize that in every complicated leadership situation, God is calling you to participate with Him as co-creator of innovative solutions that will help both the individual and the organization.
