One Thing You Need to Stop Doing to Be a Better Leader

What's one thing you need to stop doing to be a better leader?  Before you answer...you probably don't know.  It's probably something you can't see.  A blind spot.

So here's how you find out.  Ask the people who do know.

Check with your team...those you serve with...those you report to. 

Ask them, "What's one thing I need to stop doing to be a better leader?" 

It will take courage.  You'll have to be secure in yourself as a leader.  You'll have to allow people to be honest...brutally honest.  You might even make it anonymous if you want people to feel totally free to share their answer.

When you find the answer, accept it with humility and a teachable spirit.  And stop doing it.  You'll be a better leader as a result.

That's a hard task but would greatly benefit the ministry. Being secure as a leader BEFORE you ask the question will help you receive the feedback that will come your way. Happy New Year, Dale!
