BASIC LEADERSHIP QUALITIES: Be Truthful, be Smart, be Humble, be Clean, be Involved, be Grateful, be Positive, be Still, be Prepared, be Careful, be Polite, be Respectful, be Ethical, be Faithful, be of good MORALS, be Alert, be Knowledgeable be Caring, be Joyful, be Truthful, be Loving, and be “PRAYERFUL.”
These are the most basic of leadership qualities that one MUST process if they expect to have a SUSTAINING LEADERSHIP ROLE. Without these… they ARE NOT a Leader. Sure they may be moving “forward,” and may be enjoying some degree of success, but it will not be sustaining, as EVENTUALLY, the lack of these CHARACTERISTICS will be their DOWNFALL.
Ephesians 5:1-33 – Therefore be imitators of God, as beloved children. And walk in love, as Christ loved us and gave himself up for us, a fragrant offering and sacrifice to God. But sexual immorality and all impurity or covetousness must not even be named among you, as is proper among saints. Let there be no filthiness nor foolish talk nor crude joking, which are out of place, but instead let there be thanksgiving. For you may be sure of this, that everyone who is sexually immoral or impure, or who is covetous (that is, an idolater), has no inheritance in the kingdom of Christ and God. Colossians 3:17 – And whatever you do, in word or deed, do everything in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him.
These Leadership Qualities and Characteristics are “just the high road,” as there are many that are necessary. If you want to “detect” a promising Leader… than look for one that treats his WIFE and Mother-in-law with RESPECT. If ever you wish to be a leader, than STOP. LISTEN to what I’m saying. You don’t need a PhD. in Leadership to KNOW what I’m telling you here. These QUALITIES are REQUIRED “before” you even line up at the START gate. Let the JOURNEY began… .Blessings…cjlb….6/28/15.
