Christian Leadership: A Leadership Training and Values Formation
Transcript of Christian Leadership: A Leadership Training and Values Formation
Excellence rises from within; it can’t be imposed from without
Thus, leadership is the art of mobilizing others to want to struggle for shared aspirations.
-The Top Qualities People Look for in a Leader
HONESTY -We want to know the person is being truthful, ethical, and principled. We want to be fully confident of the integrity of our leaders, whatever the context.
-Consistency between word and deed is how we judge someone to be honest. If leaders espouse one set of values but personally practice another, we find them to be duplicitous. HONESTY VS. VALUES AND ETHICS -We appreciate people who take a stand on important principles
-Confusion over where the leader stands creates stress; not knowing the leader’s beliefs contributes to conflict, indecision, and political rivalry.
-We simply don’t trust persons who won’t trust others that won’t tell us their values, ethics, and standards.
BEING FORWARD-LOOKING We expect our leaders to have a sense of direction and a concern for the future of the organization.
-Therefore, leaders must know where they’re going if they expect others to willingly join them on the journey
BEING INSPIRING -We also expect our leaders to be enthusiastic, energetic, and positive about the future.
-A leader must be able to communicate the vision in ways that encourage us to sign on for the duration.
BEING COMPETENT -To enlist in another’s cause, we must believe that the person is competent to guide us where we are headed.
-We must see the leader as capable and effective.
PATIENCE I am not failure, Patient Leadership uses failure as another opportunity to achieve greatness. If you fall, fall on your back. If you can look up, you can get up. HUMBLE It is a servant leadership. Humility in leadership entails a person's honest and open assessment of their own abilities, and the contribution of and relationships with others. Being humble does not in any way imply that we doubt our own abilities, nor refrain from asserting our ideas, nor boldly charge forward. Humble leadership requires great strength of character, and it can produce even greater results for the leader and the people under their charge. CREDIBILITY We must be able to believe in our leaders. We must believe that their word can be trusted, that they’ll do what they say, that they’re personally excited and enthusiastic about the direction which we’re headed, and that they have the knowledge and skill to lead. THE LAW:
-If we don’t believe in the messenger, we won’t believe the message.
