In his book Developing the Leader Within You, author John C. Maxwell shared several character traits we should all keep in mind if we ever find ourselves in a position of leadership. He wrote:
“The world needs leaders…
“Who use their influence at the right times for the right reasons; who take a little greater share of the blame and a little smaller share of the credit; who lead themselves successfully before attempting to lead others; who continue to search for the best answer, not the familiar one; who add value to the people and organization they lead; who handle themselves with their heads and handle others with their hearts; who know the way, go the way, and show the way.”
Lead a life worthy of the calling to which you have been
called, with all humility and gentleness, with patience,
bearing with one another. (Ephesians 4:1)
You are my role model for effective leadership, Jesus. Help me follow Your example.
