Preparation is essential in every area of life. The lack of preparation often results in consequences that damage our influence and leadership.
God designed leadership to be self-sacrificing, one of self-denial where others are more important than self.
Paul’s letter to the church at Philippi is a quick read, but one filled with depth about the type of influence leaders were intended to have through an “others-centric” style of leading.
The right mind (humility), the right example (Christ), the right design (interest of others), and the right motive (abounding love and grace).
With this combination, leaders prepare themselves to lead with significance. The result makes an eternal difference.
