Leadership Pitfall

16 09 2008

So yesterday I was in small group and an interesting idea surfaced that is true not just in leadership but in many arenas of life. As you lead your organization it is easy to get paralyzed by the potential of making a bad decision. We labor countless hours to make the best decisions possible, but the most dangerous enemy to progress is not a wrong decision. The thing that will sideline your organization’s forward progress more than anything is complacency.

Nothing is more contagious and destructive than complacency and nothing is easier to fall into either. As christian leaders we often go to great lengths to guard ourselves from the destructive power of sin, and we need to, but we put so much effort into not doing sinful things that complacency just happens.

Where in your leadership are you prone to complacency? Where are you suffering from just good enough?
