MVP: “Let the one who knows the way lead.”
Between two weeks of greatest hits and a week of daily messages from Mara, it has been several weeks since I put my fingers to keyboard to share a thought with you. I’m still in Kenya as I write this but will have been home for a week by the time you read it.
At one point during our travels, our group was bumbling around, and someone said, “Let the one who knows the way lead.”
In many organizations, we expect “the leader” to lead, even if “the leader” doesn’t know the way. Strategic leaders are intentional at identifying and cultivating leadership in others and providing them opportunities to lead when those people are the ones who know the way.
Look for an opportunity today – is there someone who can help lead the way in a particular area where the path forward is unclear?
