As teams work together there are always opportunities for conflict and misunderstandings to arise. It is human nature. We have the choice to be part of the solution or exacerbate the problem. I encourage you to choose to be a solution finder! How do you become a solution centered part of the body of Christ? Let me share a few ideas with you.
The whole plan is necessary to receive the whole benefit. Don’t pick the pieces you like and leave the rest thinking you are going to get the benefit of the whole plan!
We have a healthy diet in our home, but recently we enjoyed a “cheat day”. It was a day of debauched eating! We indulged in several delicious deviations from our norm. The next morning Kristy and I sat in the living room drinking our coffee. She looked at me and said, “You led me astray!”
I asked, “How did I do that?”
A leader can make or break a team by how they exemplify correction. At some point every leader will be tasked with the correction of a team member. Improper correction will mute your leadership and make you less effective. Both you and your team will suffer because of it.
The examples of improper correction are many. In this world of abuse on every level people are too familiar with the pain, embarrassment, and discouraging effects of poorly executed correction. The result of poor correction is the reduction of influence in that person or team’s life. That leader has been muted.
