Leadership Promises - The 101% Principle

"Now I plead with you, brethren, by the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that you all speak the same thing, and that there be no divisions among you, but that you be perfectly joined together in the same mind and in the same judgment." 1 Corinthians 1:10
Leadership Promises - The 101% Principle
Leadership Promises - The 101% Principle.
The church at Corinth provided Paul with one of his greatest challenges. In this letter, he was forced to confront several problems. And his letter could have become one long, verbal spanking. Instead, Paul saw this church's potential, despite its problems.

He practiced "The 101% Principle" - finding the 1 percent you can affirm, and giving it 100 percent of your attention. While Paul knew he must confront the issues, he began his letter with words of appreciation.

Leadership rule #1 is this: Affirmation comes before confrontation. Although Corinth had some problem people, Paul still saw the good in them. They were enriched by God. They had fellowship with God. They could make positive, right decisions.

Good leaders look for the good in people and affirm it. Only then do they address the problems.
