Another Perspective on Leadership

How would the people you serve and the people you work with describe your leadership style?

People notice.

With the internet being on our desks, in our hands and even in our cars, young or newer leaders have the opportunity to observe the best of the best every waking minute.

One of my favorite leadership paradigms is from author Max DuPree. Some of you already know where I am going.

DuPree said, The first responsibility of a leader is to define reality. The last responsibility is to say “thank you.” In between the leader should be a servant.

Sounds like there could be some scripture intertwined in there. That goes against the grain of many leaders, some even in the church, they want to trade the servant status for the rock star status.

Again people notice.

Enjoying the drive...
