Primal comes from a Latin word meaning “first.” The idea relates to beginnings, first things, primary, essential, and foundational elements of all that is connected to life.
For leaders, it is essential to understand the primary / first elements that must be in place in order to achieve success.
These building blocks for spiritual leaders include integrity, honesty, strong work ethic, passion, confidence in God, discipline, and balance.
Additional elements may exist, but these are the “primal” ones of leadership.
When leaders build on this foundation, their strength of character provides hope for everyone who follows.
