Leadership Promises - Recognize the Need to Transition

"Then it was, when the wall was built and I had hung the doors, when the gatekeepers, the singers, and the Levites had been appointed, that I gave the charge of Jerusalem to my brother Hanani, and Hananiah the leader of the citadel, for he was a faithful man and feared God more than many."  Nehemiah 7:1-2. Two emotions usually follow a great achievement: a sign of relief and celebration and a sense of . . . now what?
Leadership Promises - Recognize the Need to Transition
The period after a success can become a dangerous time. Sometimes we feel tempted toward complacency, especially if we lack another goal. We can become satisfied and let down our guard. Momentum leaks.

The moment of victory is a crucial time for any organization. A transitional problem occurs when the leader does not know how to grow with the organization. Nehemiah's life illustrates the difference between a catalyst and a consolidator.

Two Types of Leadership Seasons. -Catalyst: Gets it going. Consolidator: Keeps it going. -Designer: Thinks it up.  Developer: Follows it up. - Motivator: Encourages. Manager: Organizes. - Entrepreneur: Relies on self. Executive: Relies on others
Excerpt from The Maxwell Leadership Bible
Good day!
