Executive coach, Scott Eblin says:
“Don’t assume you have to make all decisions yourself. The people closest to the action have a lot of good ideas on how to move forward.”
In every leadership position I’ve held, I’ve received valuable counsel and support from a strong lead team.
One person can’t know everything. One person can’t see every perspective on every issue. I can’t make all the calls from my office.
Jesus built his team. Not that he needed help. But he built a team to carry on his work.
In the first century, the apostle Paul had his team: Apollos, Barnabas, Timothy, Aquila, Priscilla and Luke.
Having a great team doesn’t diminish your value. In fact, your ability to build a great team enhances your status and effectiveness
Proverbs says: In a multitude of counsel there is wisdom.
