Improving others is one of the greatest keys to successful leadership. Leaders lose the right to think about themselves, and they learn that great leadership is always about others. Jim Rohn said, “A good objective of leadership is to help those who are doing poorly to do well and to help those who are doing well to do even better.”
To take this a step further, the task before us involves developing others into something greater.
For those who do poorly, we should get involved to help them do well. For the ones who do well, we should help them do even better. However, spiritual leadership drives us to a greater level.
The quality identified in this act is simple; we are talking about genuine love.
When leaders care for and demonstrate love for others they will always work to serve, placing the needs and desires of others above their own.
This attitude was beautifully exemplified in the life of Jesus and, as Christians, we have a responsibility to help the world around us see what Christianity truly looks like.
Hopefully, we will encourage the fainthearted and strengthen the mature along the way, allowing both to fulfill what God intended.
