As Karen said, the "superstars" of an organization want to work hard and take pride in the successes of their team. When other members don't pull their weight, it's left to the top performers to carry that extra load. Strong leadership requires difficult conversations with those who under perform. Take an honest inventory of your team. Identify areas for improvement and be bold in addressing them. Work to create an environment where those passionate about the ministry are brought into the vision of the church freed to exercise their ideas.
