Leader need to see the big picture, while the employees mostly see the details.

Leadership notes.

Intelligent discussion of ideas, not looking for perfection because plenty of researchers have had time to do this (Fischer, 2010).

We need to talk about leadership, interpersonal relationships, culture of the company, structure of the company, talk about all the processes that create a healthy company (Fischer, 2010).

Scripture gives us a warning about head knowledge that it puffs us up, about never coming to the full knowledge of truth. We donít create truth; we discover it with the Holy Spirit guiding us (Fischer, 2010).

If we just focus on rules and regulations, we are only have a bare minimum compliance. Everybody has the capacity to interact meaningfully, everybody needs to be spoken to as a child of God made in his image (Fischer, 2010).

Mutual accountability, employees need to be accountable to a leader, but the leader also needs to be accountable to the employees. If a leader makes this a one way street where only the employees are accountable to the leader than the employees will do the bare minimum for the leader, they will also resent the leader, they will see the inconsistencies, they will see where the decision making is flawed (Fischer, 2010).

Leader need to see the big picture, while the employees mostly see the details. Employees also need to see the big picture, itís not just about the employees job or department but also what is good for the company (Fischer, 2010).

When a leader makes a decision, the leader will need the people that are affected by the decision as part of the process. A leader needs to listen before making a decision so that details are not overlooked (Fischer, 2010).

Mutual accountability is based on humility and about realizing that a leader does not see it all (Fischer, 2010).

What it really means to be an effective leader is taking care of relationships first, that is perhaps the biggest challenge (Fischer, 2010).
