VALUE DECLARATION: Please… listen to me…All Responsible Leaders MUST declare their values from the very get-go. If they don’t…then, they are not, and will not, be a “good leader.” If “your leader” does not “declare his value system,” then you…are following the WRONG LEADER, and should reconsider your career path.
As for your own leadership…don’t take on a Leadership Role with a company that does not reflect your value system. Leadership roles are not Hollywood roles, that you can “step-in and step-out” of, rather… they are real life, real people, real consequences, real rewards… or real punishments.
Let your Leadership reflect, not just your own value system, but more importantly…let your values reflect the image of Our Lord God. Philippains 4:8-9: Finally, brothers, whatever is true, honorable, just, pure, lovely, whatever is commendable, if there is any excellence, if there is anything worthy of praise, think about these things. What you have learned and will be with you.
As Leaders, we must remember that we have an “awesome responsibility” to not just to lead from the corporate view, but from an “individual perspective.” Our followers are looking to us… and depending on us…to lead them…not astray, but to accomplish the corporate objective, and their own personal objectives.
Considering that we, as leaders, were not only created in the image of God, but we MUST REFLECT the IMAGE of God…or we will FAIL as a leader of men, and we will FAIL as “followers of Christ.”
