W31D6 - Team Building

"One of those days Jesus went out to a mountainside to pray,
and spent the night praying to God. When morning came, he
called his disciples to him and chose twelve of them, whom
he also designated apostles" - Luke 6:12-13.

Jesus understood the importance of having the 'right' team. Yet after observing His followers, He did not trust His own perspective, but rather invested an entire night in prayer before He made His selection of those who would carry out a special apostolic mission. He then 'called' them to Himself and made His appointments. Leaders should not trust their own perspective where hiring is concerned, but should take their time, find the right people, get the input of others, pray and then make clear how each of their team member's roles fits into the overall mission of the organization.

LEADERSHIP STEP: Your team is a critical part of your leadership calling and mission. It is important to locate the right people and then build them into a cohesive team. Your Step today is to once again evaluate your team - the one you have and the one you need. Do you have the right people? Are you trying to make members into who God never intended them to be? Are you expecting world-class results from people who cannot perform at that level?
