Leadership Potential…

Potential involves the possibility of something occurring if the right conditions or circumstances are in place as well as the capacity of someone to become or develop into something in the future.

How do leaders determine someone’s potential?

Three basic areas exist.

1) Actions. What has been done in the past lays a foundation for the future.
2) Abilities. No one can grow beyond their abilities, but they can change with training and practice.
3) Attitude. When a positive attitude exists, along with determination, potential is unlimited.

When leaders recognize potential, they can set greater goals for the future.

Leadership and Challenges…

One word that consistently characterizes life and leadership is challenges. The idea speaks to “a task or situation to test someone’s abilities.”

Remember these truths about challenges to our leadership.

We will all face challenges.

Challenges that test our abilities will be unique.

Challenges are temporary.

Overcoming challenges begins and ends at the throne of God.

Challenges always serve a greater purpose.

I do not know of anyone who enjoys challenges, but I do know the result is greatly beneficial to our leadership.
