Think Team - Churchplanters.com
Today I have the privilege of being a part of the monthly Churchplanters.com onsite coaching network. It's simple really. 12 planters sitting in a circle discussing "best practices" with Pastors and Coaches Shawn and David. Today we're looking at the core component that is : "Thinking Team."
"Leaders who experience significant breakthroughs are always thinking team. It is one of their primary responsibilities. They have the ability to identify and raise up teams out of their organization. However, it doesn't end there. They also have the ability to attract high level team players and coach them to play at their greatest capacity. The best leaders spend lots of time with their team. The best leaders understand that entrepreneurship is not leadership. Entrepreneurship plus teamwork is. Are you thinking team?"
For all my American mates the picture is of Wayne Bennett, greatest football (Rugby League) player-coach that has ever lived. A hero, inspirational leader and fair dinkum Aussie Legend.
