One of the greatest dangers for leaders is the desire to please everyone, or at least as many as possible.
Peter Drucker said, “Effective leadership is not about making speeches or being liked; leadership is defined by results not attributes.”
Decisions that produce results are often challenging because of the fallout from those who may be unfavorable to the decision.
If we spend our time making decisions that please everyone around us, our leadership will suffer and so will God’s kingdom.
Be decisive and put the gainsayers in God’s hands. Lead as God would desire.
