Leading Among Giants
We even saw GIANTS there, the descendants of Anak. Next to them we felt like grasshoppers, and that’s what they thought, too!” (Numbers 13;33).God does not want you to posess the small and insignificant, he wants you to possess the big and impossible. and to do that you have to conquer SMALLNESS.David Ogilvy said it best: “If each of us hires people who are smaller than we are, we shall become a company of dwarves, but if each of us hires people who are bigger than we are, we shall become a company of giants.”ENCOURAGE DEBATEDebate is healthy. I need to see your perspective! Your lens of vision is different so help me to see what you see and Ill be a better person for it. ‘Good leaders should be delighted when the best idea wins, regardless of who offered it. Encourage questions, show curiosity and follow threads. Everyone brings a different lens, and the group will become smarter if it understands what each person is seeing.’ Vivek SharmaBUILD A COMPANY OF GREATNESSTo build the best you have to choose the company of the Best. people who think bigger than you, wider than you, higher than you. if you just hang around folks who see things as you see them and are afraid to offer solutions to you, then you’re on the wrong team. you cant live among dwarfs and conquer like a giant. How big is your thinking? Ask your closest advisors!BUILD A LEADERSHIP OF THOSE WHO HAVE WHAT YOU DONTI like what it says in Corinthians about teamwork.
For the body does not consist of one part, but of many. If the foot should say, “Because I am not a hand, I do not belong to the body,” that would not make it any less a part of the body. And if the ear should say, “Because I am not an eye, I do not belong to the body,” that would not make it any less a part of the body. If the whole body were an eye, where would the sense of hearing be? If the whole body were an ear, where would the sense of smell be But in fact, God has arranged the members of the body, every one of them, according to His design. If they were all one part, where would the body be? As it is, there are many parts, but one body.
The eye cannot say to the hand, “I do not need you.” Nor can the head say to the feet, “I do not need you.” On the contrary, the parts of the body that seem to be weaker are indispensable, and the parts we consider less honorable, we treat with greater honor. And our unpresentable parts are treated with special modesty, whereas our presentable parts have no such need.
Yes build a leadership of those who possess what you don’t possessPeople who understand what you are ignorant of.Leaders who see what is invisible to you.People who have insight where you are Blind.Influencers who can lead in paths you’ve yet to uncover.Its a daring step, to employ folks beter than you, have preachers in your pulpit who can outpreach you, have managers on your team hat can outmanage you. stretch or starve my mother used to say, that’s true of leadership too. Dare to dwell among the giantsFIND THE HONOURABLE AMONG THE BRETHRENBut God has composed the body and has given greater honour to the parts that lacked it, so that there should be no division in the body. (1 COR 12;24). CREATE a culture of honour.Staying small is a choice but staying ignorant is no excuse.Greatness always surrounds itself with the greater. values its opinions, cherishes its insight, involves its role and honours its presence.See you at the topPAUL.Image by Aleksandar Aleksandar from Pixabay
