“Fred Smith states in Learning to Lead:
“One of the most important aspects of successful leadership is putting together a group of people to carry out the mission. Great athletic coaches know they must have talent to win, and therefore they take an active part in choosing players. Teams that just happened get happenstance results.”
The placement of each person in the team is vital...... People are gifted for specific kinds of service and usually grown through experience and ability, discernment and wisdom for future and greater levels of service.”
Fred Smith, “Learning to Lead” Christianity Today (1986): 93.
