Being in leadership is not easy. We can all look at those in leadership above us, whether in the workplace, the church, where we volunteer, where our children participate in sports, etc. Too often as we look at others who lead, we focus on their flaws. Many years ago when my daughter began to play basketball I saw the coach of her team and saw how I felt that they were disqualified. I could have sat in the stands belittling him, but I couldn’t get past the fact that they volunteered their time and I did not. It is easy to be critical of others who lead. The question becomes, how well do I lead?
I have been aware of the LEAD training for over a ear but I have not participated in it. When I saw it as an intensive (a 3 hour session), I thought that it was a good opportunity to get a glimpse of this training by Awana.
If you are thinking that it is just another Awana training, then you would be incorrect. It is not solely a training for Awana leaders, it is a training for any leader.
The LEAD training will have you take a deep look at your self (as noted in a previous post about LEAD) and how well you lead others. LEAD teaches you key leadership skills from a Biblical perspective.
If you are interested in becoming a better leader, then I encourage you to attend a LEAD training. Visit https://www.awana.org/lead/ for more information and to find a location near you.
