leadership

I’ve been thinking about leadership lately and while I know there are BOATLOADS of great resources, books, conferences, etc to help us with becoming better leaders, here are just a few brief, but helpful thoughts:

  • if you want a particular leadership position, act as a leader for that role before you ever get the title
  • leadership requires us to be continually growing and changing lest we become a stiffling lid
  • character is more substantial than any title
  • effective leadership requires constructive communicating: both listening & talking
  • the Jesus’ paradigm of leadership is service over superiority
  • if no one is following you, you’re merely taking a walk so enjoy the stroll ,)
  • fear is leadership poison
  • good leaders foster teamwork over competition
  • leaders look for ways to bring out the best in their team & to minimize the weaknesses
  • mistakes and failures for leaders aren’t permanent

Just a few quick thoughts on this happy Wed 🙂

Never minimize a weakness. That is the area for the greatest possible growth.
