A consequence, effect, or outcome generally defines results. When application is made of specific principles or designs, results are expected. We expect to receive something for the effort generated.
Nothing seems more important to the credibility of leadership than their results. People want to know that a leader has a proven track record of getting results.
However, danger exists when quantity becomes the defining characteristic for results, because how do we quantify faithfulness, spiritual growth, or leadership development? Are these results not as significant as the others?
When leaders learn how to qualify results in ways that help generate enthusiasm for followers, the results will far exceed expectations.
