Discover Ministry Briefing! --> The Best Way To Keep "In The Know"!
Do you frustrate your team?
Perhaps your the pastor of a large church, or supervise a large team. Do your team members find you frustrating?
Or maybe your the pastor of a smaller church. How does your board find working with you? Is the relationship frustrating to them?
My friend Brian Dodd recently posted a list of the 10 characteristics of leaders who frustrate the heck out of people. See if you fit any of the characteristics:
So… how did you do?
To tell you the truth. I wouldn’t expect you to be able to answer that question. (We all have a little problem with #6).
So… if you have the courage… show this list to someone on your team today… someone you trust (and someone that you won’t retaliate on!) Ask them how you’re doing. Ask them, point blank, how frustrating it is to work with you.
If you’re a good leader, you’ll appreciate the input and transparency from your team.
If you’re not a good leader, you, in fact will find THIS exercise to be very frustrating. (How ironic)
