Mentoring Leaders

Leadership is not just about getting a task done. It is also a matter of mentoring people new to the task, which requires regularly scaling expectations to the background, experience and aptitude of those being mentored, says Mohamed Noor. Noor, a biologist at Duke University, discusses leadership in a research lab, a community of autonomous and semiautonomous actors who are pursuing a common objective in often discrete ways. The essay, on the Faith & Leadership website of Duke Divinity School, is filled with parallels and inherent lessons for leaders of congregations, denominations and seminaries. Consider using it as a starting point for a discussion about leadership strategies for a church leadership committee, judicatory staff training event or faculty discussion. In a separate article,  Noor offers advice about managing a team.
