A Prerequisite for Leadership…

What prerequisites are needed for successful leadership? Good communicator? Solid character? Leadership ability?

While I realize choosing one prerequisite for leadership can be subjective, I have learned over the years the main prerequisite needed is a relationship with God.

Leaders often fail when attempting to go it alone.
Leaders blindly falter when leading from a humanistic worldview.
Leaders suffer needlessly because they seek help from worldly wisdom.

Only with the guidance, strength, and help of the Almighty God can we lead with this foundational prerequisite for successful leadership. Do we know Him?

Protective Leaders…

We protect many things in life. We keep them safe.

Have we ever consider the importance of providing the kind of leadership that ensures safety? Developing the 3 C’s is one approach. 

Communication: Developing effective communication––speaking and listening––is essential to safety.

Consistency: We must guard against hypocrisy. What we profess and how we live should match. Consistency is vital.

Compassion: Do others know we care about them? The compassion we demonstrate can be one of the most important areas of protection.

Our efforts to help others feel safe ensures growth and development for the Lord’s kingdom.
