"These are the names of David’s mighty warriors: Josheb-Basshebeth, a Tahkemonite, was chief of the Three; he raised his spear against eight hundred men, whom he killed in one encounter" - 2 Samuel 23:8.

King David was a great leader, made so in part because of great followers. He was not threatened by and realized his need for followers and teammates who could produce outstanding results. What's more, they were warriors, so David provided meaningful work that gave them all the opportunity to excel and do what they did best. Then their names were memorialized with David, their feats described for all posterity to read and admire.

LEADERSHIP STEP: Today, give some thought to your team or family members and the work they do and role they serve. Find some way to express your appreciation for their accomplishments. It doesn't have to be big, but it must be personalized. Then ask yourself (and maybe ask them too)  whether or not you are providing significant work opportunities that permit each one of those members to grow and excel. If not, then use your creativity and authority to do so.
