Team Leadership 2

As I sit and watch "The Biggest Loser", I am reminded again about how it is all about teams.  This year on the show, they paired contestants up with family members.  It is allowing them to work together to achieve a goal.  I want my team to work together to achieve the ultimate goal.  
I have already talked about how important it is to have "faithful" members on the team, but I also think that it is vital to have the "detail" people on the team.  I think of how Stephen, and several others, came along side the apostles to help them accomplish the gigantic task that was laid ahead of them.  It was their hard work, and their attention to detail that allowed the apostles to focus on the study and preaching of the word of God.  I think detail people are awesome because they allow the leader to focus on what only the leader can focus on.

So, it has been a while...

This has been an unbelievably busy month.  With family coming in, a conference in Indiana, and a ton of stuff going on at Hope, things have been crazy fun.
I have been thinking a ton lately about team leadership.  Specifically, who do I need on the team if the team is going to win.  I have been able to come up with a few "types" that have to be on the team in order to have a winning team.  The first one I know for sure is the "faithful" player. The Faithful player is high on the priority list because they are the one that can help you keep things moving.  They are always there, making things happen and helping the leader get things done.  I am thankful that I have several members of this "type" on our team.  The key to keeping "faithful" people on the team is making sure that they know how much you appreciate them and making them aware of all that they are doing to make your life easier.
I love leading a team of people that is committed to making Hope Fellowship a great place for kids and families!
