Principles of Leadership… #7

Keep others informed.

Three simple words, yet here is a principle that challenges our leadership. The challenge to leadership exists because the idea behind this principle involves communication.

When leaders do not keep others informed, the following happens:

People grow suspicious.
Distrust blossoms in their minds.
An element of doubt in leadership ability develops.
Anxiety begins to characterize feelings.

The lack of communication is not always intentional. Sometimes, we live a very structured life. We develop a routine and life becomes predictable. In the end, our communication is affected and eventually stops.

Is it possible to prevent these concerns from developing and growing? Yes!

Following three simple words…Keep others informed.

Within the church, there is a great need for Christians to be informed by leadership.

What kind of information needs to be provided?

Inform others of the plans for the future.
Inform others of any changes that need to be made.
Inform others of challenges / hindrances / obstacles facing the plans.
Inform others of the needs.

When leaders communicate / inform others, trustworthy and loyal relationships develop. It is time for God’s leaders to lead.
