Every great team has three types of leaders. This is true for churches or companies of any size. If any of the three types are missing, there will be stagnation, chaos and ultimately, failure. If a team has the right balance of the three, there will be growth and productivity.
Visionaries are people who see the future and dream about all the possibilities.
Strategists are people with the ability to take a dream and create a clear, tactical plan that can be followed by others.
Administrators are people who can manage all the details of the plan and provide accurate data to the team.
All three types of people are leaders for sure and all three groups need to be on your team. If you are missing visionaries, you become stagnant and lose your innovative edge. If you are missing strategists, nothing is ever planned well and often there is poor execution of the big ideas that are discussed in your meetings. If administrators are missing, there is never any accurate data to determine if you are indeed hitting the mark.
What is your team missing? What type of leader needs to be added to your team so you can hit the mark and move forward?
