    since the turn of the millennium leadership
    needed more than ever
  • Christianity is perhaps the most successful
    international enterprise in history Gods First

Countries the international community have
proven that commitment, funding, know-now produce
large-scale results
  • The case of HIV/AIDS examples from PEPFAR
  • Prevention
  • Prevent mother-to-child HIV transmission for 10
    million pregnancies
  • Antiretroviral prophylaxis for over 827,000
    pregnant women
  • Resulting in prevention of an estimated 157,000
    infant infections  
  • Community STD prevention for nearly 61.5 million
    people
  • Treatment
  • Antiretroviral treatment for 1,445,500 men, women
    and children
  • Includes 86,000 children age 14 and under
  • 62 women and girls
  • Care
  • Care for more than 6.6 million people

BUT…lessons from the most successful scale-up in
history not yet applied across the health spectrum
  • Support for women and children has stagnated,
    while AIDS funding has increased over six-fold
  • The global crisis in human resources for health
    remains a ticking time bomb
  • Unbalanced rise of the ATM megafunds threatens
    to tear apart health systems over 50 B for
    three diseases
  • Development organizations and communities
    struggle to manage a hailstorm of global
    initiatives
  • …and…
  • Each year 10 million men, women, child die
    needlessly from conditions for which we have
    safe, effective, affordable, proven prevention
    treatment

Lessons from Gods First Century Leadership Team
International Health 2008
Gods First Century Leadership Team
Lessons for Teams that Lead
15
NOT focusing on Jesus individual leadership
style ARE focusing on the First Century
Leadership Team
16
Managers teams who lead scan, focus, align
and inspire to achieve results
17
? Teams that lead are aligned around a compelling
vision shared values
  • The Great Commission the most powerful mission
    statement in history
  • Therefore go and make disciples of all nations,
    baptizing them in the name of the Father and of
    the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them
    to obey everything I have commanded you.
    Matthew 2819

18
? Teams that lead are aligned around a compelling
vision shared values
  • Values The Great Commandments
  • Love the LORD your God with all your heart and
    with all your soul and with all your strength.
  • Deuteronomy 65 Matthew 2237 Mark 1230
  • Love your neighbor as yourself.
  • Leviticus 1919 - Matthew 2239 Mark 1231

19
? Alignment around the vision
  • The First Century Leadership Team was continually
    reinforcing the vision and values
  • Preaching
  • Jesus, Peter, Paul, others
  • Writing
  • the Epistles of Paul, John, Peter, other epistles
  • Action
  • Good works - missionary journeys

20
? Alignment around the vision Shadow mission
when self interest undermines the mission and
values
  • The What about me? question
  • An argument started among the disciples as to
    which of them would be the greatest. Luke 946
  • James and John Let one of us sit at your right
    and the other at your left… Mark 10 37
  • Judas the ultimate shadow mission
  • Shadow mission (John Ortberg)
  • Authentic mission hijacked by ego, self-interest,
    power, pleasure always wanting a bit more
  • When it's about the individual team members
    themselves not about something greater

21
Overcoming shadow mission by focusing on
something greater than ourselves
  • Gods Dream Team Timothy Epaphroditus
  • I hope in the Lord Jesus to send Timothy to you
    soon…I have no one else like him, who takes a
    genuine interest in your welfare. For everyone
    looks out for his own interests, not those of
    Jesus Christ. But you know that Timothy has
    proved himself… Philippians 219-22
  • I think it is necessary to send back to you
    Epaphroditus, my brother, fellow worker and
    fellow soldier…Welcome him in the Lord with great
    joy, and honor men like him, because he almost
    died for the work of Christ, risking his life to
    make up for the help you could not give me.
    Philippians 225-30
  • Imitating Christs Humility
  • Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain
    conceit, but in humility consider others better
    than yourselves. Each of you should look not only
    to your own interests, but also to the interests
    of others. Philippians 23

22
? Alignment around the vision 21st
Century Applications
  • WHO Essential Drugs Medicines Policy
  • Creating Global Medicines Strategy
  • Building a global medicines team
  • Management Sciences for Health
  • Mission of closing the gap health impact
  • Tao of Leadership their success, not ours
  • Local health officials
  • Visionary ministers Ransom-Kuti, Tedrous,
    Fatimie
  • Officious bureaucrats

23
? Teams that lead are strengthen through
diversity in skills and backgrounds
  • One Body, Many Parts
  • The body is a unit, though it is made up of many
    parts and though all its parts are many, they
    form one body…Now you are the body of Christ, and
    each one of you is a part of it. And in the
    church God has appointed first of all apostles,
    second prophets, third teachers, then workers of
    miracles, also those having gifts of healing,
    those able to help others, those with gifts of
    administration, and those speaking in different
    kinds of tongues. 1 Corinthians 12 12-31

24

    story teller, healer, miracle worker

26
? Strength through diversity Inclusiveness
two examples
  • One in Christ Jews Gentiles / Greeks
    Galileans
  • Consequently, you are no longer foreigners and
    aliens, but fellow citizens with God's people and
    members of God's household, built on the
    foundation of the apostles and prophets, with
    Christ Jesus himself as the chief cornerstone. In
    him the whole building is joined together and
    rises to become a holy temple in the Lord.
    Ephesians 2 19-21
  • Women Leading by example
  • Jesus the woman at the well to Mary M. at the
    tomb
  • Luke notes the role of prominent women
  • Paul comments on contributions to the church

27
? Strength through diversity
  • Creating the team
  • It takes a team no leaders have all the skills
  • Recruiting the best team striving for
    excellence
  • Managing the team
  • Mentoring the team
  • Drawing strength from the differences
  • Reshaping the team
  • Ensuring a good fit
  • Different times may require different skills

28
? Strength through diversity 21st Century
Applications
  • WHO Essential Drugs Medicines Policy
  • 6 members, 6 mother tongues, 6 professional
    disciplines
  • Tale of Two Projects
  • Not the Leader, but the Leadership Team

29
? Teams that lead grow by embracing challenges
  • Trials and Temptations
  • Consider it pure joy, my brothers, whenever you
    face trials of many kinds, because you know that
    the testing of your faith develops perseverance.
    Perseverance must finish its work so that you may
    be mature and complete, not lacking anything. If
    any of you lacks wisdom, he should ask God, who
    gives generously to all without finding fault,
    and it will be given to him. James 2 1-5

30
? Growth by embracing challenges Lessons from
The First Century Leadership Team

    others

31
? Growth by embracing challenges Lessons from
The First Century Leadership Team
  • Perseverance through vivid, living hope in a
    higher purpose - Overcoming self doubt Can we
    do it? Can we succeed? Can we survive?
  • We rejoice in the hope of the glory of God. Not
    only so, but we also rejoice in our sufferings,
    because we know that suffering produces
    perseverance perseverance, character and
    character, hope. And hope does not disappoint us,
    because God has poured out his love into our
    hearts by the Holy Spirit, whom he has given us.
    Romans 53-5
  • Be joyful always pray continually give thanks
    in all circumstances, for this is God's will for
    you in Christ Jesus. 1 Thessalonians 116-18
