20QL.5 Great Ideas

Where do the great ideas come from in your organization?

This is a wildly dangerous and revealing question.  There are so many leaders who think they are colaborative in the idea process, but they aren’t.  And their assistants know.  Some leaders need to be tricked into thinking it was their idea before they think it’s a great idea!

In the Grove, a lot of the ideas initially came from me, the planting pastor.  It’s the nature of the beast.  But we have intentionally developed systems and structures whereby great ideas can come from all over.  Sometimes, people have great ideas and things happen and I don’t even know until afterward.  To me, that’s equipping and empowering the saints for ministry!
