A Leader’s job is meant to inspire and drive execution; it is not about driving people to exasperation and exhaustion. Proverbs 28:3 gives a great example of what a leader is not supposed to do: A rule who oppresses the poor is like a driving rain that leaves no crops. While this verse refers to a ruler, it applies to leadership as well. If we drive people to the point of oppression, there will be nothing left. We will not get results and we will lose people in the process. Leadership is about pulling people through tough circumstances, not pushing them into impossible expectations.
