In the words of John Holt, Jr., “The true test of character is not how much we know how to do, but how we behave when we don’t know what to do.”
Leaders need the qualities of patience, understanding, thoughtful reflection, the exercise of caution, and more.
Decisions can be made rashly and without a proper foundation. The result often brings serious consequences.
Seeking the counsel of others who have walked the same paths opens leaders to greater wisdom, new alternatives, and angles of consideration.
When leaders find themselves not knowing what to do, the best option is to pray!
