Leading can be thought of as making things happen. When you lead down you have the ability to make things happen; when you lead across you influence peers to make things happen; leading up is influencing people above you to make things happen. The last type of leading seems the most difficult, but it doesn't have to be. This handout will help you deal in a positive way with those above you by helping you identify whom you most need to influence, how to prepare to be an influence, and what specific tools you need to influence those above you.
This tool is adapted from "Leading Up," a PromiseLand Conference workshop by David Staal. PromiseLand is a ministry of the Willow Creek Association.
