From this week’s Leadership Journal Weekly e-mail newsletter is an article, “How Do We Hire? What happens when we let gifts and relationships define our organizational structures?” by John Ortberg.
“We have to break old models of church leadership—not to go to new models, but to go back to an even older model—organization around gifts.”
“But I do have a conviction that when it comes to getting leadership right, 98 percent of the ballgame is relationship. I believe where there is a relationship of joy and commitment and mutual submission and trust and authentic love—then the division of labor issues can flow freely and effectively. But where the relationship is broken, all the org charts in the world can't save it.”
