“Value, voice, and vote are three good words for leaders to remember. All persons want to be valued, given voice, and allowed to participate in decision making that affects them.”
— Randall O’Brien in Christian Leadership Essentials: 301.

Though I have not verbalized these truths as eloquently has O’Brien has, I have learned the importance of these three truths and operate by them regularly. If I need to get alignment among the team on any key decision or initiative, it always works best to value our people/leaders enough to let them weigh in and contribute to the discussion and effort to find consensus. We arrive at better decisions and we promote team value.
Thanks for posting this Daniel.
