Intentionality has powerful implications. Words such as deliberate, calculated, planned, studied, and purposeful are all related.
When leadership is intentional, decisions are well thought out before implementation, mistakes are reduced, confidence is displayed, and steps are taken to ensure others follow the right path.
Intentionality does not guarantee the right decision will be made every time, but such an approach builds on the foundation of solid reasons for each decision.
The need for both secular and spiritual leaders to be intentional in their leadership is obvious. The longer intentionality is discarded, the more leadership flounders.
