One of my volunteer teams is undergoing great change. As we looked ahead to the future (example: the 5 campus vision presented last Sunday), we knew that we were not going to be successful. We could not possibly grow our leadership ranks fast enough to deliver on that vision.
So, we have taken a radical step. We have started asking leaders to step aside…so that the next generation can step up and learn how to lead.
The thing that surprised me the most is this – the current leaders did not resist, but were eager to take that step. Why? Because they have caught the vision. They value the next generation. They believe in preparing to launch those 5 new campuses.
Take a minute to stop and look into the future. Where is your greatest obstacle? What steps are you taking to prepare for it?
Thanks for listening.
