3 Insights From Anne

1) Empower the Leaders on Your Team

As a leader, it is easy to feel like every task and responsibility falls on your shoulders. It’s important to rely on and empower the leaders who serve under you. Anne shares that a success she has had in this season is making sure her leadership team is healthy and taken care of, so that the same mentality can filter down to their ministries. 

2) Know What to Let Go Of

In roles of leadership, not every task will be for you. Some things are necessary to do, but by delegating and freeing up your time, you give yourself room for your own growth and passions. By finding the things that you need to invest your time in, and finding those that don’t, you become a more productive leader. Anne gives the example of administrative work; she finds administrative tasks to be draining. She also realizes that there are others whose gifting is administrative work, and is happy to bring others into the fold to protect her time. 

3) The Importance of Being Vulnerable

“Vulnerability is contagious”, meaning that when someone sees you expressing vulnerability and openness, it empowers them to do the same. In quarantine, we can’t express our connections with smiles or any physical aspects, so being genuine and authentic in your language and actions will draw people to you and to your organization.
