As part of my elder journey at ABF, one of the things that I want to be is available and accessible. So many times, leadership whether in business or community or ministry related, are detached from the groups they work with and serve.
Leadership is not only about effectively guiding, casting vision, listening and speaking into situations, but it is also about SERVING. I am a huge fan of serving in areas where you are gifted. Marcus Buckingham has made the “strengths” revolution famous for helping people work and serve where they are gifted and possess strengths. John Maxwell believes that people should work and serve in their gift zone. He says that when we take people out of their gift zone then we hurt their ability lead – this is different than pulling someone out of their comfort zone.
I want people to know that I am available in many different forms, if they want to connect. I enjoy a good meal, a cup of coffee, an iChat, a Facebook connect, Twitter interaction, linking in, blogging or riding a bike. Leadership is a process and I will be the first to admit that I am not always perfect at leading, but I am trying.
