Shared Leadership: A Bicycle Built for Seven


Shared Leadership is one of the cultural mandates for our ministry.  Each person has a defined responsibility and each one does his/her part to accomplish our assignment.  There is a leader, but every team member helps to lead the team.

So today, as I was leaving the 415 Restaurant in Ft. Collins, I saw the instrument designed for just such a leadership approach:  the Septocycle, also called the ConferenceBike.

I know others have seen it—in action—but this was my first time.  I took the photo above, then found the video below.

So perhaps we need to rent such a vehicle whenever a team is struggling to “share leadership” to give them a real-life experience in each person doing his/her part to get where they are trying to go.


What about you?  What has helped you "share leadership"?
