Cut Them Loose!

I meet with leaders of ministries and owners of businesses who ask me how to release young leaders. The advice I give is always the same. Make sure the people on your team know your heart and the vision of your ministry/business then cut them loose to run at the speed of their faith.

As an older and more experienced leader, the greatest struggle you will have is to learn how to lead from behind. Become a voice of affirmation that always “has their back” and be a resource to their portion of the vision they have been assigned. Young men and women need to be free to run past your greatest success to enter the unexplored regions of your vision that will never be encountered if you try to make everyone fall in behind you and assume your pace.
