There are many significant thoughts relating to leadership. One of significance comes from Donald Rumsfeld, “Don’t necessarily avoid sharp edges. Occasionally they are necessary to leadership.”
We often go to great lengths to avoid what we consider “sharp edges.” We do not search for those challenges, or recommend them to others.
While leaders do not like dealing with these edges, they know their value to leadership development.
Sharp edges exist and we will face them at different times and ways. While we do not look for them, we do not avoid them, but learn from them and allow God to work through them to shape us as His leaders.
