Over the years, much has been said about the middle child within family relationships. Some information fits, some not. We have learned that each child is unique in their own ways.
However, the idea of being in the middle develops an interesting thought for leadership…leading from the middle, influencing those who work below and above us.
John Maxwell’s 360 Degree Leader shares a few principles.
1) Leadership influence works both ways, up and down.
2) Invaluable opportunities exist for the greater good from the middle.
3) The middle provides the greatest leverage for leading.
As Christians, we all lead from the middle. Let us use this place well.
