I am sitting at the house watching Deadliest Catch. There are several captains and ships that you could work for on this show and it reminds of the present conversation in church literature that titles do not make the leader and positional leadership only works if you want to work for the person in that position. Just because you have a title doesn’t mean that people will follow you. In the church world, where you primarily work with volunteers, a title becomes much less important. If a volunteer decides you are a jerk he/she can pack it up and move onto the next thing.
On the show you really get to watch the leadership styles of several leaders. Some captains are really hard on their guys. Some yell and cuss to get the job done. Some seem to have more fun than the others do. Some ships are primarily family run. I would be afraid that Phil is going to die at any point in the journey.
If you were a crab fisherman who would you want to work for and why?
