Leadership Issues: Confrontation Part 2

Art of Confrontation-Hosea 6:1-7:16

Hosea is not above speaking words of confrontation. Look at his train of thought:

1. He clarifies the desired relationship he wishes to have.
2. He defines the unacceptable behavior.
3. He highlights his values and priorities.
4. He lists the conduct that illustrates his point.
5. He reminds the people of their training.
6. He declares the consequences.

All good confrontation ends in the hope of restoration. The goal is always reconciliation, not excommunication.

When team members drift from goals, leaders owe it to them and to the organization to confront or clarify the situation. This is the only way to stay on track and to maintain respect from the team.
