My wife and I have recently come off a transition in our roles. We successfully passed off many of our leadership responsibilities to men and women we trained up and walked with.
This is every leaders dream and greatest moment of success, to see something you’ve begun outlast you and be improved by another.
It can also be a place of great insecurity.
In our mission, many leaders hang on to titles far too long for fear of no longer having a voice.
We were not afraid of a loss of influence, but freedom to invest in whatever you want sounds both fantastic and terrifying at the same time.
There have been moments of insecurity and near panic attacks for me. My wife has been dealing with debilitating migraines.
Our dream of “doing whatever we want” has not gone quite as envisioned.
