In today’s episode, we look at what would happen if we as organizational leaders, begin to reshuffle the tasks within job descriptions to match up to everybody’s giftings/genius? If employees are working in their gifting area, they are more productive and fulfilled. Working outside their giftings/genius leads to being frustrated and unfulfilled in their work.
