Something You Can Do
Updated: Aug 20, 2021
Whatever your opinions are about everything our country is dealing with, I hope that you and I can agree on one thing – we need to be liberators for those we love and lead.
A liberator fights for the highest possible good for everyone around them – not just the people you agree with or get along with but for EVERYONE!
A liberator’s intent is to be FOR people (not for yourself) and call people UP (not out) even if you have different opinions or emotions.
To help you get in a mindset of liberation, at the start of each week ask yourself this question, “Am I prepared to fight for the highest possible good of the people I am leading this week?”
If your answer is “Yes” try answering these 3 questions for each person:
1. What specific support and challenge do they need from me this week?
Being a healthy leader is bringing both support and challenge but calibrating each one in a way that your people need them.
2. What is the tendency or pattern most undermining their influence?
If you truly care for those you lead, it’s your great responsibility to speak the truth in love to help them overcome an unhealthy tendency.
3. How do I help them get to the next level?
Help them see their future and equip them to climb their mountain. What a noble role of leadership – to be healthy and confident in ourselves to help others get to their next level.
If you want to be a true liberator, it takes putting others before yourself. There’s no favoritism, hate, or partiality.
