Caught in the Middle

A strange feeling exists when we are caught between a rock and a hard place? The idea is being caught in the middle. The middle brings interesting thoughts to mind.

There are those who are caught in the middle, between two friends.

There are children who are in the middle, born between two siblings.

There are followers of Christ who, religiously, walk in the middle of the road, neither one side or the other.

However, leaders cannot afford to be in the middle of the road regarding God. Leaders need dedication and confidence to move others from point A to point B.

Middle Leadership…

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.
