Exploding the heroic leader myth

This post is from the defunct blog “Dying Church”

From Fast Company's First Impression:

"Organizations that are run by heroes hit barriers." (Timothy Butler, Director, Harvard Business School Career Center)

How true. It's freeing to move beyond acting (or pretending) that the pastor is a hero with the answers and charisma to move the church forward. It's a little sad that it's taken Jim Collins and Enron for a lot of us (including me) to catch on to this.
