Leadership

leadership is such a messy business.  balancing the needs of an organization with the needs of the people who make up the  organization.  often  the two  are at least somewhat in line with each other,  but then there are times when it just doesn’t seem like it.  then there is the multiple layers of heiarchy, and every organization,  no matter how collegial, has some sort of hierarchy.  it seems  like leading in an organization is a series of negotiations. with  “clients”, with your boss, with yur co-workers, with your direct and indirect reports.  and everyone seems to have a slightly different understanding of what’s going on.  or at least that is my experience right now.  it’sprobably not the case in all organizations. but it seems that ours is really trying to find its way right now.  and thenthrow the whole God thing into it  – am i doing what God wants me to?  is the organization?  what does this person or that person think about that?  right now it all kind of makes me tired. i need a spiritual/physical/emotional recharge.
