I have to say my perspective on management has changed in the last couple years.
I used to think a leader had to work smart and work hard, 12 hour days, 6 day weeks. Vacations optional.
I’ve learned the value of a leader is more about who we are than about how hard we work.
I used to study time management for ways to get more done in a shorter amount of time. I now understand the value of just being with people, hanging out with them, listening and encouraging.
I used to think that leaders had to be the fount of all knowledge and wisdom and I now understand a good leader assembles a team that contributes to the overall strategies of an organization.
Maybe that’s why Jesus said: the greatest among you will be the servant. And the least become greatest in God’s work.
