I’ve been thinking a lot about leadership recently. A friend gave me an article about the greatest blessing of leadership. The blessing that the author talked about was having an unobstructed view. I completely agree…however, I know there have definitely been times when I have felt like the view was incredibly foggy.
With my experience as a Camp Director, I know that most days I’m the one that gets to see the whole picture. Not only do I hear about every first aid call, but I have the privilege of hearing about all of the really cool things that happen at camp, both from the team leaders and from the church group leaders. That’s such an exciting part of my job and leadership in general!
It’s not always a clear view, but here’s the fun part: As a leader, you get to see the most. It may be a really clear day where you can see forever or a cloudy day where you can see just enough. Don’t let those cloudy days get you discouraged. You have the ability to make the cloudy days clear for those who are following you. Tell them what you are seeing, where you are going, and how you are going to get there.
