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
Leadership Promises - Recognize the Need to Transition
Leadership Promises - Recognize the Need to Transition.
Two emotions usually follow a great achievement: a sign of relief and celebration and a sense of . . . now what? 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.
The Maxwell Leadership Bible. Good day!
