Taking Care of the Flock
Sarah was going through our 6-week FIRE in the Workplace study with a young lady she was mentoring. As the two of them reviewed the study’s thoughts on leadership, Sarah had a sobering insight.
The study taught Sarah that as a leader she needed to care for her team as a shepherd would care for sheep. After reflection, Sarah realized, that at times, she becomes so task-focused that her team members could easily believe she’s using them simply to accomplish her business objectives.
Ezekiel 34:2 says, “This is what the Sovereign Lord says: Woe to you shepherds of Israel who only take care of yourselves! Should not shepherds take care of the flock?”
