I read the following passage this morning in The Dream Giver by Bruce Wilkinson.
The single best way to develop leaders is to take people out of the safe environment and away from the people they know, and throw them into a new arena they know little about. Way over their head, preferably. In fact, the more demanding their challenges, the more pressure and risk they face, the more likely a dynamic leader will emerge.
pg 117, The Dream Giver by Bruce Wilkinson.
Chew on that as you walk through your day. More to follow this evening. I promise.
