Last month I posted about my invitation to our staff to evaluate my performance as a leader. You can read that post HERE. I promised to do a follow up post with their input. This will actually end up being more than one post, because of length.
I have asked our staff to evaluate me. Using Google documents, I set up group for our staff and me and then placed a document in the group just for this evaluation. I then invited the staff to participate anonymously. Here is what I posted. I will let you know their responses good and bad. (unless they cuss a lot!)
This is a random post, but I was thinking about leadership again today. There are many leaders I know who certainly have responsibility for an organization, but I wouldn’t necessarily consider them “good leaders”. (This is not aimed at anyone specific; so don’t read it as such. If the shoe fits…)
What is your definition of a team player? Over the years, I have discovered that not everyone defines “team player” the same. There appears to be two almost bipolar understandings of the term. This difference existed when I was in the business world and it continues now that I am in professional ministry work.
