The Power of Leadership

Posted on August 8, 2014 at 9:35 AM

I’ve said it before and will say it again. We were not created to live, work or play alone. Each aspect of our lives, unless it’s our personal renewal time, is more effective when we include others. Whether to involve them in rewards, benefits or profits, we tend to have more joy when we share the limelight of our success, unless we are self-centered. It’s been my experience that self-centered leaders end up tragically alone and defeated.


In my book Five Shades of Leadership I have proven that there are benefits, as a leader, in empowering others to be the best leader they can possibly be. We are made in God’s image, after His likeness, and we have power to empower others to be the same so that they can empower those they lead. Working with your family, the marketplace, the house of prayer, the community and the world is the only way to fulfill the mandate of making leaders. Yes, that is what disciples are. They are leaders, who are made in God’s image, after His likeness and they use the power of leadership to produce love, joy, peace, longsuffering, goodness, gentleness, meekness, faith and self-control in their homes, in the community, in the schools, in their state, in their country and in the world.


The power of leadership is encouraging others to live the power of leadership principle and produce the fruit that I’ve named above. Subsequently, you can measure the fruitfulness of your leadership by how many leaders you produce, who bear the fruit of love, joy, peace, longsuffering, goodness, gentleness, meekness, faith and self-control in their homes, in the community, in the schools, in their state, in their country and in the world. How powerful is your leadership?
