"Remain in me, as I also remain in you. No branch can bear fruit by itself; it must remain in the vine. Neither can you bear fruit unless you remain in me" - John 15:4.
Organizations expect their leaders to be fruitful and productive on behalf of the organization. They are also expected to lead new initiatives that lead to growth within their team, the product line, the services offered, or the mission of the company's purpose. When this doesn't happen, the organization goes into 'maintenance mode' and that is not leadership; that is management. While leaders may have to manage some things, they are paid or chosen to bear fruit as leaders and will be held accountable for that to happen. That is the reason they should delegate management to others so they can concentrate on what leaders are supposed to produce.
LEADERSHIP STEP: Today, why don't you work on developing a personal scorecard for productivity in your organization (or family). Set five areas in which you would like to be productive personally for the remainder of this year. Then define what fruit you would like to bear in each area. Then regularly review these areas for the rest of the year to be accountable not just to maintain but more importantly to grow.
