When you become a "spotlight leader" everyone wins!
- A new perspective is often needed to see clarity
- Those of us that work in the church are good at a lot of things but we are not very good at developing leaders
- No one wants to be identified as a self-perservation leader
- A spotlight leader is one who puts others in the spotlight
- 3 general categories of a spotlight leader: (1) they are secure (2) they are dedicated to searching (3) they are servants.
- Jim Burns said to Doug "I want you to focus on your writing so that you literally make my books irrelevant."
- A leader makes conscious decisions
- A spotlight leader will make decisions at their own expense to push others into the spotlight
- Why can't we tweet failures and struggles? Nobody shares that stuff. Church leaders should tweet honest stuff.
- The problem is that we have believed the lie that bigger is better.
- So many leaders today have a depth of insecurity that they constantly feed
- A spotlight leader looks around at those in their influence and helps them to not only discover what is good in them but helps them to make it great
- People around you are just waiting to be discovered
- Who are you threatened by? Do you have the desire to see anyone become more successful than you?
- Servants are rarely ever recognized
- Why do we see other ministries as competition?
- When you become a spotlight leader everyone wins!
- This post contains my notes from the general session at the Orange Conference.
