Recognizing Staff Abuse:
Staff Abuse: the idea that you can treat people who work for you however you want in the name of serving God.
Common Characteristics of Staff Abuse:
demanding, disrespectful leader
belittles staff from platform
micromanaging & lack of trust
failure to delegate
not communicating or building relationships with staff
not giving appropriate affirmation
This is not what Jesus modeled to us. Harsh leadership hurts and wounds people.
We are a reflection of the greatest influence in our life.
