EMULATIBLE Leadership Characteristics: Many Leaders are people of Charity, Kindness, Loving, Forgiving, Caring, and Trusting; not to mention…honest, hardworking and dedicated. Then, there are…those others…who are hard-nosed, distrustful, conniving, narcissistic, unforgiving, and hateful…and some even, who are down-right-crooked. And on top of that…they “throw it in your face”…daring you to do anything about it…or, they’ll “get-even,” And, very often…they do GET EVEN.
How one could be considered a successful leader if (s)he were so poorly described? Yet we have them… some even in High Government Service, and private enterprise is certainly not an exception.
Our prisons have their share of “white-collar-crime’rs,” crooked government… and political leaders. They come from “all sectors” of the work-force. They all look-a-like….you know…like you and me.
It is the responsibility of Management… and yes, the VOTER… to insure that reliable, reputable, dependable, and responsible people are placed in such high positions of control and authority.
We are told clearly in… 1 Cor. 13:13 – “And now abideth faith, hope, charity, these three; but the greatest of these is charity” …And this is just what is expected of our Leaders…nothing more…and nothing less. The fact that we don’t get this… more Emulatible leaders…is our own fault.
Ephesians 5:1 – Therefore be imitators of God, as beloved children.
Philippians 4:8 – Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is commendable, if there is any excellence, if there is anything worthy of praise, think about these things.
