Team Leadership

What’s the difference between “leading a team” and having “team leadership”?  Team Leadership means leadership responsibilities are distributed within a team.  An article from the Harvard Business Review discusses research that shows how teams that share leadership rather than rely on the leadership of one individual can be very effective. They even go so far as to suggest that shared leadership is a model that is needed across all levels in the contemporary business world.  This month’s articles consider questions like:
  • What does it look like to have a team serving as the leaders of a ministry?
  • What are the benefits of “team leadership” compared to having just one overall leader?
  • What does the bible tell us about sharing leadership?
Join us as we explore the immensely effective and empowering concept of team leadership and how it can help take you, your staff and your ministry to the next level of fruitfulness for the Kingdom.
Make sure to also check out the ALLC’s recommended leadership resources of the month, as well as the upcoming leadership schools, trainings and events both online and throughout Asia.
