3. They Know How and When To Celebrate. High performing leaders will often work their people hard and it can seem to be an arduous relationship. But, when the goals are achieved or the mountain has been climbed, the successful leader will celebrate with their team in a big way. And, he/she will be the first to have fun – and give everyone a glimpse into their lives because they are able to let down their barriers (which are sometimes necessary in the day-to-day).
Do you let your employees "know" you as other than they leader or boss? Why or Why not?
Do you feel it is important to "have fun" or celebrate with your team? What are some ways you have done so and how has it shown itself to be a positive for your company?
Colossians 6:5-9 says, "5 Bondservants, obey your earthly masters with fear and trembling, witha sincere heart, as you would Christ, 6 not by the way of eye-service, as people-pleasers, but as bondservants of Christ, doing the will of God from the heart, 7 rendering service with a good will as to the Lord and not to man, 8 knowing that whatever good anyone does, this he will receive back from the Lord, whether he is a bondservant or is free. 9 Masters, do the same to them, and stop your threatening, knowing that he who is both their Master and yours is in heaven, and that there is no partiality with him."
As you read this passage it is easy to focus on the commands to the workers (bondservants), but note verse 9, "Masters, do the same to them..." What does that say to you?
