Leadership Word Of Week…Collaborative

Working together to produce or create something defines collaboration. This definition is foundational to understanding team-work as it is associated with leadership.

The realm of leadership is characterized by numerous qualities, principles, and ideas for developing good leaders.

Sadly, leaders often feel they must “go it alone.” Some styles of leadership, such as dictatorial, lend to this mindset and hinder the true development of godly leaders.

We also find that leaders who fail or refuse to work with others, choosing to work alone, suffer both physiologically and psychologically.

When Solomon said “two are better than one…and a cord of three strands is not quickly broken,” he lays down a principle that supports collaboration.

Additionally, scripture supports the idea of working together, especially as the New Testament describes the church as a body that involves each individual part contributing their abilities to the building up of the body of Christ (cf. Rom. 12:4-8; Eph. 4:11-16).

When leaders work together and promote working together as a team, God will produce fruit that is eternally lasting.
