As current models become outdated, misaligned with current needs, and in some cases broken, current leaders can only continue to adjust, repair, and re-align the old model the best they can.
“Today’s biggest human challenge isn’t leading broken organizations slightly better. It’s building better organizations in the first place. It isn’t about leadership: it’s about “buildership”, or what I often refer to as Constructivism.
“Leadership is the art of becoming, well, a leader. Constructivism, in contrast, is the art of becoming a builder — of new institutions. Like artistic Constructivism rejected “art for art’s sake,” so economic Constructivism rejects leadership for the organization’s sake — instead of for society’s.”
If what is desired is to build a new organization, what will be needed are builders.
Umaik Haque contrasts the boss, the leader, and the builder
For it is the “builder” that includes us all. The builder watches and learns, for the builder is both teacher and student. Most importantly, the builder harnesses the love. For it is the love, the love of God, Jesus, the World, and people that drives us all forward to build the organization and church of tomorrow. The builder harnesses that love.
