Three words describe the concept of an engaged leader: occupy, attract, involve. These words may have reference to someone’s interest or attention, but all three are key to understanding the need for leaders to engage others.
Occupying the attention of others indicates we keep them focused and connected.
Attracting others demonstrates we bring them to a place where they can participate.
Involving others means we include them in the experience.
If we are not doing this, then we have to wonder if we are really engaged leaders.
To necessitate spiritual growth, leaders must be engaged.
