“Threating” vs. Appealing as a Leader

A periodic leadership reflection based upon Philemon 9…

Don’t default to commanding, threatening or “strong-arming” team members (and subordinates)… As a Christian, for love’s sake, appeal to them instead.

The verse that prompted this reflection?  Paul writing to Philemon on behalf of Onesimus: “Though I am bold enough in Christ to command you to do what is required, yet for love’s sake I prefer to appeal to you.”
