When building teams leaders can’t be the best at everything on the team. If the leaders is the best at everything they don’t have a team, they have helpers. Looking around the staff table I know am greatly encouraged by the fact that we have a variety of gifts and skills present. I am also relieved that I don’t have to try to be the best at everything.
Let’s look to football to see how this plays out. The Quarterback is not the best tackler on the the team. The leading scorer is often the kicker. That’s a dude who is able on focusing on one thing and trying to do it really well. The Coach isn’t even playing but he responsible to makes sure that he has the best people in the roles that they need to be in.
Teams are much better when leaders are willing to let other people shine, and celebrate their wins.
