A Friend Indeed

True and genuine friendship is rare and should be treasured. There is never a bad time for a friend. They always seem to know the right time to show up and speak.

Leaders often experience times when there is the need for a good friend, someone who is able to fill the gap, sharing the mountain tops and valleys.

A good friend is someone who knows when to listen without being critical. They are respectful even though they may disagree.

Leaders also know the value of providing genuine friendship to those who follow.

Authentic Leadership…

Being genuine, or authentic, is highly desired. However, selfishness, personal agenda, money, power, and position often hinder our authenticity.

Consider a few ideas that increase the growth of genuine and authentic influence for leaders.

2) Use good judgment in all decisions.
3) Deliver honest criticism in a spirit of biblical love.
4) Demonstrate Fairness and impartiality.
5) Always begin and end with something kind and complimentary.
6) Before helping others, take care of personal issues first.
7) Ask for assistance and follow the suggestions.
