We all expect to lead others right? Leaders should be prepared to receive the tons of ideas that will be suggested by others.

What do you do when someone offers the solution you have been waiting for all these years?
How about someone offering a suggestion that has even a little bit of potential? What do you also do when your youth group or campus fellowship suddenly becomes an idea bank rather that a results delivery center?

The key to this simple; err on the side of promoting an environment of ideas. So jump at the opportunity to encourage the behavior. But give the responsibility to them.

When Your People Suggest Promising Ideas, Say: “Great! Do it”

This gives them permission and ownership of the initiative. The results will often be better than if you had suggested the idea yourself.
