Faith In Action: Good Leaders, Good Followers
Activity time: 0 minutes
Description of Activity
Encourage participants to reflect on this question: Are there times in your life when you have been among the people complaining, because of anxiety or uncertainty, in a congregation or organization (or even your family or workplace)? In remembering those times, consider how you might react differently if you were to encounter a similar situation today. What have you learned from your experiences as a leader about the ways people respond to change?
Leaders Need Followers
Make a commitment to be a follower in some area of your life. You might volunteer to be part of a congregational or community project where others are in the leadership roles. You might volunteer to work with youth in a situation where they hold the leadership position. What are the qualities of a "good follower"? How does it feel to work in a situation where someone other than you determines the vision and priorities?
