14X Leaders

Love this 'leader' team. And I say leader in quotes because everyone on this year's team has lots of initiative, influence and passion and to call some leaders implies that others are not. Not totally true this year and it doesn't always happen every year.

We are farming out responsibility and authority for certain things to each person in this group. We need them to do some leading and guiding and they are not only ready for it, they long to take what they know about leadership and apply it. When creating leaders, the best thing you can do is... well... have them lead.

The two quick lessons I try to keep in mind with this kind of thing:
- Give them authority along with the responsibility.
- High invitation, high challenge.
