Creating Space for Leadership

One of the great hindrances to leadership growth in your church or organization will be your failure to provide growing leaders with spaces to ply their skills and talents. If you don’t create spaces for young leaders to work then they ARE going to leave you. They can’t help it. They must lead or they become frustrated. These frustrations will either lead them to seek new opportunities, undermine your leadership, or stall as a leader.

At some point in your own personal leadership evaluation you must ask yourself which leaders your have put a lid over and are you that lid? If the answer is yes then you need to carve out a greater role for that leader and get out of the way.

How are you giving growing leaders an opportunity to spread their wings? What new directions are they taking you?
