CXP CEO Devotion Guide - Two Are Better Than One

  1. 1. Two Produces BetterThan One
  2. 2. 9 “Two are better than one, because they have a good return for their labor: 10 If either of them falls down, one can help the other up. But pity anyone who falls and has no one to help them up.” Ecclesiastes 4:9-10 New International Version (NIV) Every leader knows the statement, “It’s lonely at the top.” It is true that leaders often experience loneliness because they reside at the peak of a business and often are the only ones who know everything about everyone and every situation in the company. Loneliness can sap the leader’s energy and lead them to make poor decisions. Loneliness can impact any person. In 2014, the National Science Foundation reported in its General Social Survey that an unprecedented number of Americans are lonely. Almost one-fourth of respondents reported having “no one with whom they can talk about their personal troubles or triumphs.”1 . If this is true of all people, how much more does this prove to be true of leaders who have no one to expand their thinking, share ideas, or give insights and inspiration? Devotion:Two Produces BetterThan One <<< CEO Experience, All Rights Reserved. >>>> 2 Reflection Question: At what times in the running of the business have you felt the loneliness of leadership? Reflection Question: What one or two strategies do you embrace to overcome loneliness?
  3. 3. Devotion:Two Produces BetterThan One God’s plan for your leadership is that you lead with others. He desires that every leader have a team of people to provide help and support through the difficult moments of the hour. No Christian leader should ever find themselves alone in their struggles, difficulties, and decisions. This passage in Ecclesiastes promises that God is bringing people into our lives and our companies that can help us see further, learn faster, and accomplish more than we could ever accomplish on our own. In verse 9, Solomon, the wisest man that ever lived, states, “two are better than one, because they have a good return for their labor.” Two people can produce more than one person can produce. A promise that God gives to the Christian executive is that He will bring people into our life and our company that will help us build a better product, produce better results, and achieve a better outcome than we could have ever produced by ourselves. Reflection Question: If two are better one, why do so many leaders and entrepreneurs choose to function alone? Reflection Question: How do we fight against the temptation of the desire to lead alone? No Christian leader should ever find themselves alone in their struggles, difficulties, and decisions. “ ” <<< CEO Experience, All Rights Reserved. >>>> 3ceoexperience.com
  4. 4. Devotion:Two Produces BetterThan One <<< CEO Experience, All Rights Reserved. >>>> Solomon ends this Bible principle with the statement, “Pity anyone who falls and has no one to help them up.” Every leader has the potential to fall into the danger zone of executive isolation.2 God wants us to live life and run a business with others, and yet so many leaders lead alone. Solomon gives a real example of the dangers of isolation when he states that a leader may fall and have no one to help them up. In the words of The Pulpit Commentary “The joint labors of two produce much more effective than the efforts of a solitary worker. Companionship is helpful and profitable.”3 1 - https://www.psychologytoday.com/us/blog/what-is-your-true-north/201510/overcoming-the-loneliness-leadership 2 - HBR - How to Overcome Executive Isolation - Ron Ashkenas https://hbr.org/2017/02/how-to-overcome-executive-isolation 3 - http://biblehub.com/commentaries/ecclesiastes/4-9.htm Reflection Question: What steps can leaders take to ensure that they are not leading alone?
