If you can not think of an example, use this time to be more aware of how
you can better serve your team instead of just thinking about how they can serve
It says in the Bible that you must first be a servant before you can be a leader.
Matthew 20:26-27 (NLT)
But among you it will be different. Whoever wants to be a leader among you must be your servant, and whoever wants to be first among you must become your slave.
You can learn so much from that perspective. Developing that sense of servant hood will take you far in the area of growing your leadership skills. Carrying that sense of servant hood in your leadership style plays a big part in developing a team. If you can serve the needs of your team, they will be able to, in turn, reach the goals that you have put before them. You are putting limitations on your team if you are just thinking about yourself.
How have you helped your team this week to be successful? Or are you so "hands off" that your team has to handle whatever comes up on their own? Does your team have the confidence in you to know that if they fall behind in your expectations of them, that you will jump in and help them through the tough times. I have done that with my team and have had team members comment to me that they have never seen someone in my position jump in and help like I do. It is this type of approach that let's me enjoy having the strongest team that I have ever had.
Give me some examples of how you served your team this week.
