Questions to consider

  1. What expectations do you have for individuals on your team? When will you communicate those expectations?
  2. Return to the JOY acronym. As you consider your leadership, What does Jesus want? What do others need? What can you do or not do to help?
  3. What’s getting in the way of life-giving accountability? Should-isms? Amnesia? “Good girl or good boy” syndrome?
