Leadership Promises - Personal Qualifications for Leadership

"Surely the princes of Zoan are fools; Pharaoh's wise counselors give foolish counsel . . . Let them know what the Lord of hosts has purposed against Egypt. The princes of Zoan have become fools; The princes of Noph are deceived; They have also deluded Egypt, Those who are the mainstay of its tribes." Isaiah 19:11-13

What qualifies a person to be a leader? Most natural leaders don't aspire to be great leaders; they aspire to be great persons. Personal qualifications lead to leadership qualifications. When leaders lead their own lives well, others naturally want to follow.

Consider Mother Teresa of Calcutta, India. It's doubtful she ever said, "I am going to set out to be a great leader!" Yet that is what she became by determining to be the person God created her to be.
If we want our leadership to last, we must pay attention to four crucial elements:

1. Character - enables us to do what is right even when it seems difficult.
2. Perspective - enables us to understand what must happen to reach a goal.
3. Courage - enables us to initiate and take risks to step out toward a worthy goal.
4. Favor - enables us to attract and empower others to join us in the cause.
Excerpt from The Maxwell Leadership Bible.
Good day!
