Substance involves a quality of being important, valid, or significant. Simply stated, substance is the stuff that makes up leadership.
What makes up the substance of our leadership? Integrity? Work ethic? Core values?
What stands out that gives credibility to the substance of our leadership?
Only you and I can answer these questions. The substance of spiritual leadership must not be self-centered, but others-centered. The quality that validates the importance of leadership is not built upon “I,” but “you.” The substance of good leadership uses “we.”
As important and needed as leadership is today, it is worth our time to focus on the substance.
