The Simplicity of Successful Teams

Phil Cohen was telling me that his father-in-law, Frank Turpin, was a great leader. Over Frank’s career, he worked his way up to vice-president of what later became Exxon.

Frank died in 2004. A few years after he died, Phil called Frank’s son, Hank, and asked, “How was your dad so successful?”

Hank replied, “He knew how to attract talented people. He trusted them to do what they said they would do. And he had fun at work.”

I’d say that’s what they did in the early church:

  • They chose faithful, skilled, and trustworthy people.
  • They trusted each other to carry out their assigned tasks, and
  • They did everything with joy and gratitude.

When you find those kind of leaders, hold on to them. And try being one of them.
