AVOID BEING THE SCAPEGOAT
Ever had someone open up to you about his or her burden and pain, and suddenly you find yourself distanced, ridiculed, or even blamed for issues for which you are not responsible? Most people who desire to help and serve others face this situation at some point in their ministry.
But what can you do? How can you avoid becoming the scapegoat for someone else's baggage? As a leader, you're called to serve others. Despite your experience or professional training, you may find yourself taking on undeserved blame and enduring conflict. Sacrifice the Leader offers you candid insight and direction. This book allows you to gain biblically based understanding in issues such as:
''Why does a follower sometimes choose to project his sins onto a leader?
Which listening skills should a leader develop in order to avoid this?
What steps can a leader take to prevent followers from projecting their sins onto him or her?
Which interpersonal dynamics set a leader up to become a sin-bearer?''
Arm yourself with the knowledge that keeps you in unity with Jesus Christ.
