How many times have leaders been in a position that no matter what decision was made there was a level of condemnation.
The result leaves leaders feeling as if they are being shot at from both sides, from the front and behind.
Leaders must be decisive, and they will always have to face attacks from the enemy in front them. However, they should not have to deal with attacks from followers behind them.
Herein lies the challenge of leadership. These situations have caused many spiritual and godly leaders to step down from the role they served. Sadly, it has also prevented many of the same type of leaders from ever stepping up to serve. What can be done to change the direction of this problem?
Pray with and for these leaders.
Always speak well of leadership to others.
Make it a habit to build them up publicly.
When a problem or disagreement arises, speak to leaders privately.
Encourage those who are godly to lead.
Begin preparing future leaders among the young now!
Good leadership does not happen by accident. We must be working to direct the future today.
