The bedrock foundation for leadership is character. While many qualities contribute to great leadership, the key is trust. Leaders must be worthy of trust, both from God and those they lead. Bob wraps up this series of leadership lessons with a focus on developing the trustworthy character all leaders must possess, especially during a crisis.
The greatest challenges often lead to the greatest leadership, but even the greatest leaders do not lead alone. The strength of their leadership is built on the cooperation of many who work together. In this week’s saltTalk, Bob talks about the need for leaders to cooperate in order to lead during and through a crisis.
When we look at the early church, we find the apostles faced challenging situations (Acts 6). During this time, they remained connected to God, each other, people involved in the situation at hand, and to the community at large. In this third presentation, Bob talks about how leaders need to be connected in the same ways during a time of crisis, or pandemic.
Change is one of the most difficult words for the majority of people to accept. We tend to resist change and, at times, make every effort to stop it. However, not all change is bad. Some change is good and even biblical. Change is part of life physically, emotionally, intellectually, and spiritually. The task before leaders in the midst of this pandemic is learning how to guide change in the right ways. Listen as Bob shares the need for leaders to guide change.
During this challenging time, many leaders are asking, “How should we lead?” The uncertainty that exists has caused leaders to question what they need to know and do during a time of Crisis or Pandemic. This is the first of several saltTalks where we discuss ways to help leaders know what to do during and after a Crisis or Pandemic. Join Bob as he talks about the foundational need for Courage.
