Jealousy and ambition! Ever had those two things intrude upon the workings of your leadership team? They will destroy the effectiveness of a team as quickly and more thoroughly than most anything else.
“For where jealousy and selfish ambition exist, there will be disorder and every vile practice.” – James 3:16
In contrast, teams that truly collaborate, where leaders operate with wisdom, then there is harmony – peace.
“But the wisdom from above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, open to reason, full of mercy and good fruits, impartial and sincere.” – James 3:17
So, which of these two verses describe the operations of your leadership team? Are people competing with a self-centered view, or are they seeking the wisdom from above? Are people open to reason? Are they sincere – authentic?
If verse 16 describes your leadership team – maybe it is time to have some frank discussions about how to move to a team that reflects verse 17.
Blessings on your week!
