Leadership Issues: Change Part 3
Changing with Times-Nehemiah 7:1, 2
Two emotions usually follow a great achievement: first, a sigh of relief and celebration; and second, a sense of . . .now what?
How we handle achievement tells us a lot about our character. The period following a success – become a dangerous time. Sometimes we feel tempted toward complacency, especially if we lack another goal. We can become satisfied and let down on guard. Momentum leaks.
The moment of victory is a crucial time for an organization. The leader must be able to change – or face a transitional problem. The transitional problem occurs when the leader does not know how to grow with the organization. Nehemiah’s life illustrates the problem:
Two Types of Leadership Seasons
|1. Catalyst: Gets it going||1. Consolidator: Keeps it going|
|2. Designer: Thinks it up||2. Developer: Follows it up|
|3. Motivator: Encourages||3. Manager: Organizes|
|4. Entrepreneur: Relies on self||4. Executive: Relies on others|
