Perhaps you are familiar with the idea of insanity: “doing the same things in the same way and expecting different results.”
As amazing as it may sound, we often practice a level of insanity when approaching our leadership, we want to do the same things the way we have always done them, yet expect different results.
Our culture has changed. Demographics have changed. We have changed, whether we want to admit it or not.
What we need is a little sanity. By definition, the idea of sanity speaks of reasonable and rational behavior. Now there are two powerful words for leaders to learn.
The thought expressed does not mean we never take risks, nor does it mean we are unwilling to make changes.
The thought behind sanity involves making sure we investigate the facts, consider the pros and cons, and implement change with a reasonable approach for what is best.
We are not talking about something that is unscriptural, but rather not being tied to the traditions of men as binding for eternity.
Sanity or insanity: that is the question.
