Thoughts from this episode:

Sometimes the most loving thing you can do is release someone from your staff so they can go elsewhere and succeed.

Recognize your organizational expectations, personal expectations, and ministry/job/career expectations and identify what that looks like in your specific expectations.

The level of expectation you hold those under you to should be the level of influence you’re leading at.

Lead people to exceed your expectations.

When someone is falling short of your expectations, ask yourself how you are leading them.

When deciding when to release someone, ask if there is still space for them to grow.
