Moses chose able men out of all Israel, and made them heads over the people, rulers of thousands, rulers of hundreds, rulers of fifties, and rulers of tens. - Exodus 18:25 Every successful leader understands that leadership is a people business. Hence, getting task completed under your own steam while keeping people at arm's length isn't synonymous to leadership. However, if you are to win with your team, you need to DISCOVER THEIR POTENTIAL and help them see with half an eye that they are valuable to the team's success. If they are not pulled off the sidelines, they may never try their hands in achieving a landmark impact. Leaders who win with their team don't demur at the counsels to DELEGATE TASKS off their shoulders. Had Moses failed to heed to his father's-in-law sagacious advice to defer minor tasks and leave them in the hands of carefully selected team players, he would have endangered his health and spread himself too thin. The fallout of his reception of the counsel led to timely completion of tasks and ultimately helped Moses to  spot talents who might have been biding their time for an opportunity to make impact that matters. What kept Joshua from losing steam as the point man ordained by God to take on the reins of leadership from his predecessor was courage. The Lord God had to DISSOLVE THE FEARS of Joshua. Often times he was charged to be strong and courageous. He received divine assurances which helped him to put up a brave front when squaring up to daunting challenges. This leaves the impression that when a leader dissolves the fears of his team, they would be willing and poised to step up to the plate and take on tasks regardless of their complexity. Hence, I pray God bestowed on you the wisdom and insight to win and cross the finish line with your team in Jesus name
