If you haven't caught up with Leadership Journal in a while, their recent edition focuses on teams and how they lead. I was especially fascinated by an article about how one church went from a one pastor model to a team approach of four men who lead together.
Can you imagine if every church was led by four instead of one?
The featured church, Next Level Church in Denver, explained how their model allows for deeper service, more humility, greater accountability and a healthy buffer in case one leader falls. It also allows for a community to get things done. Maybe, just maybe, it decreases the amount of 'leadership complaining'.
All of us complain about our leaders. I just wish they would do more of this… Why can't he be more like… It drives me crazy when… When you practice GTD, you are putting next-action thinking into play. You stop looking around and wondering why it isn't moving fast enough and
making it happen.
This of course builds you up as someone who actually produces results. You are then able to do the work of four instead of one.
