A Principal Art of Leadership

April 20, 2010

I liked this Facebook post from Tim Stevens and he has it on his blog – Leading Smart as well.

“”We were extremely good at some things, we were very good at many things, but we were not good at everything. One of the principal arts of leadership is to make such distinctions…’ (Dee Hock, founder of VISA, in One From Many)

  • Do you know what you are good at?
  • Do you know what your church or organization is good at?
  • Do you know your weaknesses?
  • How do you keep your team focused on its’ strengths and not sidetracked by its’ weaknesses?”

Some good questions – do you know the answers for your organization?

By the way – check out Tim’s blog Leading Smart – some great stuff there!
