E25: What Team Building Process Did Jesus Use?

Team Building Like Jesus

Understanding the dynamics of team building

No matter what you are trying to achieve in your business, you will need a strong team to do it. You can only go as far as your supporting cast will take you. Sports stars and oscar winners know this to be true.

 

Jesus also knew this, which is why he put together the most impactful team in the history of the world: His twelve apostles.

 

These twelve seemingly ordinary men set the world on fire. It’s not because they chose to follow Jesus, but rather because He chose them to follow Him. This difference is huge in team building dynamics.

 

In this week’s episode you’ll learn the three groups found within any team and how to interact with the differents players within each group.

 

Being a leader doesn’t mean to always attract more followers. It means to be confident enough to choose who you keep around and invest in.

 

Hey… it’s what Jesus would do.

♦ Understand how, as a leader, you are to relate to each group within your team.
