It is said that when you are an employee, you put in 8 hours of work. When you are the leader you work half days! Now let me clarify not 4 hours! 12 HOURS OR MORE!
This is a different picture. As the leader you show up! You stay and you do not look at the clock! You come in on week ends! You leave family sitting in the parking lot while you encourage a new employee to see options! To not give up! To see that they are added value to your team! Leaders go the distance for others. You make sure to say Thank You! You take time to stop bad behavior and to break strong holds when team mates are struggling. You get up even when you don’t think you want to! You don’t complain. You trust others to bring their best because you bring your best!
Who is leading? Is it you? Or is it bigger than you! You are given gifts from God. Some people will be glad to work the 8 hours. This is okay! Not everyone is the leader. However, to be a leader you need to remember you are accountable. Leaders fall down! Leaders fail and they over come great obstacles to be better. Better at serving their people. Better at giving time to help others see that they can do more.
Leaders work on their attitudes so that when they are focused on big decisions that they see positive perspective and help others see positive options. Leaders look for opportunity to help others be more! Taking time to evaluate their teams strengths!
Leaders are to provide hope. Scripture to study “You are my refuge and my shield; your word is my source of hope. Psalms 119
For me and my employees, I will follow God to lead others!
