I am running a week of camp this week and have been struck with how important delegation is. There are 100+ campers and 35 staff. I have been apart of leading this camp for 4 years and this year is the first that I feel we have lead well. The reality is that my leadership here is way more about good delegation and staff recruiting than it is my public speaking, or writing, skills.
I think it is easy to see ministry as a solo task. It is easy to evaluate yourself based on your specific contribution, but leadership is not that way. Your effectiveness and the impact God will make through you are based on your ability to delegate key responsibilities to other skilled leaders.
Leadership is about good delegation.
What tasks could you delegate and be more effective? What leadership tasks should never be delegated?
