I love this quote:
Be the kind of leader you want to follow.
What kind of leader do you want to be? That’s an important question, don’t you think?
This question, when faced with it this morning, reminded me of the following:
The kind of leader I want to follow is humble, self-reflective, wise, God-honouring, people-honouring, a seeker of the best in people, accountable, transparent, inspires other to become more, brings clarity to the current rally cry, encourages, invites people to lead in their area of strengths, doesn’t abuse positional authority, seeks diversity in team for the betterment of where the team is serving, doesn’t gossip or leak important information, doesn’t use others in a self-serving way, is not afraid to stand for truth and what is right, and is not afraid to stand and lead forward in turbulent times.
What kind of leader do you want to follow?
