One of a leader’s primary duties is to grow and develop others. Just recently I began wrestling with a  related question posed by a long-time friend of mine-Dave-who is in ministry.…Am I a leader worth reproducing?

How about you? Are you a (fill in the blank) board Chair…director…Executive Director…worth reproducing? How about in your role as a parent, spouse, friend? What needs to happen to make you one? For me, part of it is about:

  • Letting go of control and developing a spirit of surrender
  • Becoming more patient, and
  • Not letting the perfect get in the way of the good

So again I ask, what needs to happen to make you a (leader, etc) worth reproducing? How are you going to make that happen? What will be your biggest road block and how do you intend to overcome it so 2014 is your best leadership year ever?
