Scott Williams: "Real Leaders Develop People, Then Release Them"

A couple weeks ago I had the privilege of listening to Scott Williams talk about leadership at Velocity 2012. I scribbled some notes that i thought might encourage you.

  • The highest form of leadership is leadership development.
  • Good leaders create an environment where other leaders can win.
  • In Mark 14, Barnabas truly believed in John Mark even though he had some problems.
  • To develop leaders, you need to acknowledge their misses and their wins.
  • Real leaders will release their developed leaders to other ministries or locations.
  • People who do not develop leaders will reject leaders who need help rather than mentoring them to take their next steps.
