If you want to be a leader or you’re already placed in a leadership role, take action and always be ready to serve people in the best way possible. There are many readings you can find in the bible about people taking leadership roles and how God helped them in a difficult situation. But there is a big difference in managing people and leading people. Five signs of successful leadership qualities are:
- Being Likable
- Remembering everyone’s name
- Showing others that you genuinely care
- Focusing on people and looking at them in the eye when they are talking
Being a leader takes courage, discipline, and determination. You have the responsibility to serve others before you serve yourself. As is says in Galatians 6:9,
Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up.
Perhaps you’re not a CEO of a large corporation or manager of a firm, but God may want you to take a leadership role amongst your friends. As you draw closer to God this week, ask him in what ways you can have better leadership skills and how you can be a godly influence on others.
Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit. Rather, in humility value other above yourselves. – Philippians 2:3
