There are many reasons why leaders fail, but I want to focus on this one today, self sabotage.

Be aware! Don’t neglect the stuff going on in your peripheral vision. Be aware of people’s body language, be aware of how they roll their eyes or don’t.

There is something amazingly strong about when you include other people into your life, into your process, into your profession, into your thinking.

Every leader reinvents him or herself. I know in my life, I have been through many reinventions. When someone comes up to you and says “Hey!! You are still the same as 5 years ago.” Don’t take that as a compliment.

The style of your leadership that worked a year ago may not work next year, and may be diminishing this year. So your style of leadership has many different inputs in to it.

My leadership style is informed by my experiences and needs to adjust to where I am now.

You have people around you that are quiet. People who don’t say a lot, who don’t make a lot of waves, who don’t make a splash. they don’t enter a room and say “Hey, here I am!” They bring their notepads, they quietly slip in and take notes and have great attitudes. Those are the quiet ones. Today, I want you to take note of the quiet ones around you. Just because they are quiet doesn’t mean they don’t have the goods.

In the 70’s I was leading a department in the church I was a member of. Then someone else came into the church and the pastor put him in charge of the department I was leading without letting me know… I felt overlooked, I felt like “Hey, I’ve been working here faithfully…” This is what you need to remind yourself. Others may overlook you, others may pass you up, but the One who keeps score has got His eye on you.
