1). Blog Entry: Leaders Corner - Raising Up Leaders
As leaders, it's important that we are working to raise up people under us that are capable of taking over when we are gone. Reproducing other leaders should be a normal task for all leaders in the world today. Who is someone that you are mentoring and teaching your skills to? It could be that you don't have anyone because we often find it hard to do this. Here's a few thoughts from Ryan and Beth Frank in their book, Pulse, for helping your up and coming leaders to step up and lead:
- maximize teachable opportunities like mistakes or errors
- don't discourage them by shooting down their ideas from the start
- make it known to all that we want volunteers to take the initiative and step up
- allow them to make mistakes and learn from them.
