LOYALTY AND THE PROMOTIONAL BOTTLENECK
Peter Drucker gave this warning to those who would push back this principle, "Contrary to popular legend, subordinates do not, as a rule, rise to position and prominence over the prostrate bodies of incompetent bosses. If their boss is not promoted, they will tend to be bottled up behind him. And if their boss is relieved for incompetence or failure, the successor is rarely the bright, young man next in line. He usually is brought in from the outside and brings with him his own bright, young men. Conversely, there is nothing quite as conducive to success, as a successful and rapidly promoted superior" (The Effective Executive. New York: Harper & Row, 1985, page 93).
Loyalty is necessary because it is Biblical (Hebrews 13:17) and because it promotes the unity and effectiveness of the ministry where it is practiced.
(From a sermon by Tim White, Six Marks of Leadership, Mark 3, 5/9/2011)
