6 Ways To Embrace Servant Leadership as a Millennial Entrepreneur:
- Encourage you to take more calculated risks.
There is a tremendous opportunity for failure when it comes to serving. If you serve God, serve according to how the work benefits HIM.
- Do not become double-minded.
If someone or something foolish comes your way looking to distract you from what your higher calling and destiny is, cut them off, and only move forward.
- Assemble a team based on your strengths and weaknesses.
Steve Jobs famously said, “We don’t hire smart people and tell them what to do. We hire them to tell us what to do.” Do this and you will find yourself and dream further than you ever thought possible.
- Give a person a vision who is unstoppable.
Imagine your team or soon to be team taking a road trip. Everyone in the car has a purpose and is very essential according to 1st Corinthians 12:12-26. By default, choose people based on their calling and not your calling. A person that is determined to go the full distance in their destined roll will do their part better than you could ever ask. Sometimes you need to find someone who will take the wheel while you rest or handle other tasks.
- Give a driven person some healthy direction.
In building your team, if you have time to invest in training a very ambitious and powerful person that may be lost in their purpose, do so. There was a question asked by a C-Level executive sometime ago. He asked, What if we train people and they leave us? The response by the teammate was, What if we don’t train them and they stay?
- Celebrate Differences
Diversity isn’t just a buzz word for SHRM or other Human Resources professionals. Diversity can help you see clearly in your mission. Imagine having 200 yous around you all agreeing with you and seeing it your way. How would you ever see things from the customer side, the buyer’s side, the employee side, the teammate side, the contractor side, the government perspective, the banks POV, the investors perspective view, and so forth? Take advantage of building and embracing the village. To lead is to follow good example and counsel.
