Patrick Lencioni has what I think is a fantastic article about leaders pushing those they lead to higher levels of achievement.  I think publicly in the Church leaders are perceived as generally too "pushy" but internally - meaning in the day to day work and ministry in a parish - we are perceived as generally too lax.  Lencioni is speaking about the internal leadership of an organization and I think it specifically applies to parish life and ministry.  

Parish leaders can benefit from being a bit more "pushy" of those they lead.  And it applies to both staff and parish volunteers - albeit the relationships are different.  The ability to push others to their potential is the charge of any leader but especially Christian leadership.

Read and let me know your thoughts...
