The Apostle Paul instructed, "Let these also first be tested; then let them serve as deacons if they are beyond reproach" (1 Timothy 3:10 NASB).

Most business will have star performers, those that demonstrate leadership traits. Consider giving those stars an opportunity to take some leadership and demonstrate whether they meet your expectations. Coach, mentor, and then observe how they perform. Some will struggle while others will excel. Then promote the most effective leaders in the future. You will build a winning organization!

In the Word

The Apostle Paul instructed, "Let these also first be tested; then let them serve as deacons if they are beyond reproach" (1 Timothy 3:10 NASB).
