In this episode, we talk about one of the most essential workouts that can be immediately applied at any given opportunity. Having this ability will help us become a great leader, especially in terms of helping our team to develop their God-given giftings.
2:06 Today we’re gonna do a slightly different workout. We’re gonna workout our ability to recognize giftings of others.

9:23 You see, “exactly right” behavior is made up of a whole series of approximately right behaviors. It makes more sense to praise progress—it’s a moving target.

12:26 It’s also a priceless leadership lesson for us because it causes us to sit down and evaluate, to sharpen your discernment. That’s what this workout will do. And then you’ll get better and better at recognizing, defining, appreciating, and celebrating the gifts of others.
