And so, brothers, select seven men who are well respected and are full of the Spirit and wisdom. We will give them this responsibility. So, God’s message continued to spread. The number of believers greatly increased in Jerusalem, and many of the Jewish priests were converted, too. – Acts 6:3 & 7 (NLT)
The product of great leadership is multiplication. But this will never happen if you lack the ability to delegate. Delegating is the ultimate game charger. As a leader, you should recognize when delegation is necessary and release responsibility or you limit your leadership and achievement potential. You simply cannot do it all – leverage on people or you will wear yourself out and leave room for great disappointment.
Leaders who fence in lose ground. Fencing out helps to gain ground – expand your territory and sphere of influence; open you up to opportunities, deepen commitment and increase your growth potential. If God can trust you enough to give you a purpose to reach the world, it is only logical to expect you must equally trust others around you by giving them responsibility to deliver the assignment. Lead like Jesus!
Confession: My sphere of influence is expanding and I leverage the help of those around me to achieve excellence.
