Principle 5: Share Authority Through Delegation

March 9, 2017 0 Comments

The Course Think Like Jesus, Lead Like Moses presents Ten Leadership Lessons  based on a study of the life of Moses.   In this FREE course (take by CLICKING HEREyou’ll find video lessons where I discuss each lesson.

One of the teaching tools used in the course is video clips from various movies to illustrate a given leadership concept.  Principle #5 uses a video clip from the movie Armageddon. I’ve embedded that video clip here for your review.

Each lesson develops a Key Verse, Thought for Reflection, and Point to Ponder.
Key Verse: Exodus 18:23: “If you do this thing and God so commands you, then you will be able to endure, and all these people also will go to their place in peace.”

Thought for Reflection: Jethro, Moses’ father-in-law told him that he had to give up control over the micro details of managing the Israelites. In return, Moses would gain a better grasp of the overall picture of where the people were going. Moses’ focus was on taking the Israelites to the Promised Land, not in building a personal following that was dependent upon his own personal charisma. In your personal dealings, are you:

2. Or, are you hoarding the glory, focusing the attention of others on you and creating your own cult of personality?

Point to Ponder: In your circle of influence, what would it mean to mentor others so that they could accomplish things that perhaps you could not?  What would it cost you so that others might benefit from the fruits of your knowledge and experience to promote, not only your interests, but the interests of your family, your business, or your community?
