…whatever their age. Leadership gifts don’t automatically grow with experience. Two things bother me, three get under my skin:
- people without leadership gifts in positions of leadership simply because they’ve “put in their years”
- people struggling with incredible leadership gifts in a setting that doesn’t allow them to put those gifts to work
- and people that have leadership gifts but bury them.
It’s time we gave more honor to leadership as a profession, a gifting and a calling and let leaders lead right out of the gate.
