Good leadership insight!

I found the following insight for leaders and thought that you might enjoy it and learn from it as I did. This might help you as you lead in our church or if you are a pastor or leader in another church in might be a blessing to you.


Leading Laggards

In an organization with 100 people:

20 people are doers.
With a leader.
80 are hanging around watching, experimenting, consuming, or complaining.
When the 20 expand to 40, chances are there’s 200 now in the organization (or will be).
The 20 tend to get frustrated with the 80 for not doing anything and at times will tell them. (They should avoid that.)
The 80 will ride the coattails of the 20 and feel like they did it and even take credit for it.
This sometimes frustrates the 20. They should not be frustrated. They should just do.
Great leaders pour vision into the 20 while casting the net out to the 100.
Frustrated leaders spend a lot of time trying to get the 80 be part of the 20.
Of the 80, some will become doers as the organization grows.
The doers that simply do will some day realize there are people following them.
Some of the 80 will become part of the 20 with a simple personal invite.
A leader will be turned down 4 times for every yes. This does not bother great leaders. It frustrates others.
Frustrated leaders have the opportunity to be great leaders.

I want to be a great leader.
