Do you know the commitment level of your teammates? (211-3) Written by Barry Werner on June 4th, 2012.  Leaders must have the commitment of their team if they hope to succeed. Read John 6:41-65. Often Jesus had large crowds that followed Him. Many of them hung on His every word. However, when He said, “I am the bread that comes down from heaven,” many in the crowd began to grumble and said, “Is this not Jesus, the son of Joseph, whose father and mother we know? How can He now say, ‘I came down from heaven?’”  The issues got even deeper when Jesus said, “I tell you the truth, unless you eat the flesh of the Son of Man and drink His blood, you have no life in you.”  “On hearing it, many of His disciples said, ‘this is a hard teaching. Who can accept it?’” The result according to verse 66, “From this time many of His disciples turned back and no longer followed Him.”  Jesus clarified the level of commitment He expected from His followers. Do you know the commitment level of your teammates? Are you reluctant to challenge your team’s commitment for fear of what you may find out and who may leave if asked for a deeper level of commitment? Are you prepared to trust the truly committed members of your team with responsibility and authority that matches their skill level?  Two things always happen when a leader calls for commitment: it clarifies where people stand, and it purifies the organization.  Wise leaders seek to understand the commitment level of each teammate.  To be effective, a leader must have a team committed to the organization’s mission and to their leadership. It is interesting that the number of individuals following Jesus became much smaller when people were forced to evaluate their commitment, but the accomplishments of the team that was left is still rocking the world.
