John Maxwell says that if you are a leader and no one is following you, then you are merely taking a walk.
I can talk about success, skills, visions, plans, strategies, discipline and many other things, but the most important principle for me as a leader is how to relate to followers.
I must be sensitive to others, my disposition is far more important than my position. I must constantly ask what is best for those who follow me. My heart should be ruled by a servant attitude and not self preservation.
I should learn to speak kindly because the words I speak will bring out the best or the worst in people. The way I treat people on the way up is how people will treat me on the way down.
Leadership means putting people first.
God is trusting me to bring out the best in the people around me. To heal their brokenness, their failures, and help them achieve success in finding their destiny and releasing their God given potential.
Every person desires to be somebody and they need to know I care, before they will care that I know.
I have so much still to learn…..
