Some thoughts on team building:
Question - do the people around you feel like they are working WITH you or FOR you??
If they feel like they are working FOR you here are some possible outcomes;
They are an employee and not a partner.
Their productivity will be par and not excellent.
They will feel used and not appreciated.
Their vision will be short-sighted and not long-sighted.
They will discourage others to get involved.
If they feel like they are working WITH you here are some possible outcomes:
They will be long term ministry/ life co-workers.
Their loyalty will endure through the most difficult of times.
Their leadership capacity will exceed your own.
Your legacy will be people and not projects.
They will feel they belong and the Kingdom will grow.
