3 Scary Lessons from a Leadership Collapse

Bob FranquizLeadership

I grew up in Boston, so to say that I’m a Red Sox fan is a severe understatement.

I love the Red Sox. I cried when they won the Word Series in 2004.

Needless to say, the last week has been rough for me.

The Red Sox fell apart. Completely.

Then to make matters worse, they fired their manager.

Say. it. ain’t. so.

But in the midst of all of this madness, there’s 3 huge leadership lessons for us to learn as church leaders: 

1. The Red Sox didn’t think through the chemistry of the team when they brought in their high priced free agents.

2.The responsibility of the success of the team always falls on the senior leader. Period.

3. When their high priced players got hurt, the Sox found that their farm system was pretty thin.

In working with thousands of churches, I could list these same issues as the root problems they faced.

The bottom line is, you never grow past raising up leaders.

It’s a relentless art.

But it doesn’t have to be impossible.

In fact, in my new coaching network Leadership Ninja, I’m going to teach our entire system for reproducing leaders al very level.

In 11 years, we raised up all of our leaders and staff from within. Every single. one.

I know this can be your story as well.

Because the most loyal, high performing leaders, are those whom you raise up.

If you join Leadership Ninja, I’m going to teach you how to do that.

But here’s the deal: I’ve only got 4 spots left for Leadership Ninja. 

So time is of the essence.
