Leaders Do This One Thing Frequently

As we embark on a new year, one leadership axiom is ringing in my ears.

See for most of 2017 I spent time recruiting volunteers and empowering volunteers to make a difference in the world. This, on the surface seems admirable. The problem is, all I was doing was delegating tasks.

Whether you work with volunteers or line-manage employees, the truth is you can only do so much if you just delegate tasks to others.

Here's my thought: We must train and develop leaders, not just give tasks to followers.

We effectively need to delegate authority, not just responsibility. When you delegate authority you empower someone to be a leader.

That is surely one of the ways we can maximize our leadership effectiveness in 2018.

God bless.



  1. As true as it is. A christian leades job is to make himself useless 😉 Good shot Pete!

  2. Yep! We need to grow people
    Leadership begins with love, leadership without love is just manipulation!
    Can't remember who said that but it works!
