Leadership without accountability is destined for failure. In this lesson, your students will see how accountability in leadership provides a grace-filled place where they can admit their failures and ask others to point out their leadership “blind spots.” Through the book of James, they’ll be encouraged to confess and pray with other believers. The example of a Major-League Baseball umpire will show them the power of admitting your mistakes. A final activity will give them an opportunity to practice depending on others to point out their “blind spots” and see the difficulty of trying to lead without accountability.
