Leadership Promises - Are You a Navigator

"The preparations of the heart belong to man, but the answer of the tongue is from the Lord. All the ways of a man are pure in his own eyes, but the Lord weighs the spirits. Commit your works to the Lord, and your thoughts will be established."  Proverbs 16:1-3.
Leadership Promises - Are You a Navigator.
Effective leaders practice the Law of Navigation, which says that anyone can steer the ship, but it takes a leader to chart the course. The verses in Proverbs 16 remind leaders to:
  • Check the source of their wisdom.
  • Check their motives. 
  • Check the outcome they are pursuing. 
Consider five key words to understanding how God helps leaders to navigate their way through life:
  1. Process - God's plan usually unfolds over time. What is He revealing progressively?
  2. Purpose - God wants to accomplish His purposes. Why were you created?
  3. Potential - God will use your gifts and passion. Does this goal fit who you are?
  4. Prioritize - God will ask you to adjust your time and energy. What steps must you take?
  5. Proceed - God will eventually require you to act. When should you start?
Excerpt from The Maxwell Leadership Bible.
Good day!
