Developing great Leadership Qualities

    Behold, I have given him for a witness to the people, a leader and commander to the people. (Isaiah 55:4)

    Leadership is divine, but attaining it is by deliberate actions.
    Sustainable leadership is possible when conditions governing it are holistically met.
    It is worthy of note that seeking the adequate knowledge of the qualities of good leadership is very necessary to an aspiring potential leader.
    And imbibing these qualities is very much important to climbing the leadership-ladder to the very top.
    It takes knowledge and discipline to be a leader.
    One thing is having the divine-order of leadership. Another thing is rising through the rank and file to get to a position of leadership. And yet another things is maintaining the status-quo of leadership.

    It is a true saying that both good and bad leaders are never forgoten.
    Prosterity is always the indisputable judge of all leaders. Good name, the Bible says, is better that gold and silver. The question is, what kind foot-print does a leader want to leave behind in his asignment. Today`s deeds belong to tomorow`s history.
    Let them alone: they be blind leaders of the blind. And if the blind lead the blind, both shall fall into the ditch. (Matthew 15:14)

    QUALITIES OF A GREAT LEADER
    1. Leaders are called to serve not to be served
    They should be servant-leaders not master-leaders. Jesus washed the feet of His disciples in displaying the spirit of humility that should prevail among leaders. Leaders are not supposed to be lords, but only emmutable-managers in men affairs.
    If I then, your Lord and Master, have washed your feet; ye also ought to wash one another's feet. (John 13:14)

    2. Leaders should delegate and share power
    No good leader says he can go it all alone. Trusted and able assistants are necessary to sustain a stress-free leadership. Moses was advised by Jethro, his father-in-law, to appoint helpers by delegating power. He selected seventy elders and imparted them with spiritual ability. This really made adminitration less cumbersome. In another account, Moses hand was helped up by Joshua and Hur for Israel to win the Amalekites in battle.
    So Moses hearkened to the voice of his father in law, and did all that he had said. And Moses chose able men out of all Israel, and made them heads over the people, rulers of thousands, rulers of hundreds, rulers of fifties, and rulers of tens. And they judged the people at all seasons: the hard causes they brought unto Moses, but every small matter they judged themselves. (Exodus 18:24-26)

    3. Leaders should be charismatic and have the aproval of their subjects
    Leaders should not deal with their subjects treacherously. There must be a clear-cut policy and sense of direction. A dribbling and meandering leader cannot last. Carrying the aura of a lead is commanding the respect of the followers.
    Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth. (2 Timothy 2:15)

    4. Wisdom is a must if a leader want to manage his people well
    King Solomon asked God for wisdom to administer his subjects. In James 1:5, there is a clear admonition that if any one is lacking in wisdom he should ask God, who will give without upbraiding. Wisdom is the principal partner of a great leader.
    Give therefore thy servant an understanding heart to judge thy people, that I may discern between good and bad: for who is able to judge this thy so great a people?......... Behold, I have done according to thy words: lo, I have given thee a wise and an understanding heart; so that there was none like thee before thee, neither after thee shall any arise like unto thee. (1 Kings 3:9-12)

    5. Boldness is not an option if leadership must be effective
    David ascended the position of leadership through his fearlessness. He attacked and destroyed Goliath of Gath, the champion of Philistine. He was brave where others were jittery and fearful. That victory paved way for him to get up and ascend the ladder of leadership to the level of ruling and reigning.
    And David said to Saul, Let no man's heart fail because of him; thy servant will go and fight with this Philistine. And Saul said to David, Thou art not able to go against this Philistine to fight with him: for thou art but a youth, and he a man of war from his youth. And David said unto Saul, Thy servant kept his father's sheep, and there came a lion, and a bear, and took a lamb out of the flock: And I went out after him, and smote him, and delivered it out of his mouth: and when he arose against me, I caught him by his beard, and smote him, and slew him. Thy servant slew both the lion and the bear: and this uncircumcised Philistine shall be as one of them, seeing he hath defied the armies of the living God. (1 Samuel 17:32-36)

    6. Good sense of direction, aim, ojective and mission should be clearly made available to the subjects if a leader must be successful
    Communication good raports between a leader and his subjects must not be allowed to break down. Jesus Christ told His disciples about all His missions on earth. He took them as His friends. His followers knew what he was up to. Jesus carried them along. Obedient followership could only be raised by only an open leadership. No one follows blindly. Followers may even want to know what their stakes and rewards will be in a leadership ventures. The disciples of Jesus asked what would be their gains for forsaking all and following Him. He did not snubbed them. But rather emphatically explained to them what their great rewards wpould be. Travails and challenges, goals and achievable-objectives of a mission-venture are essential to be freely shared with the followers by those leading.
    Saying, The Son of man must be delivered into the hands of sinful men, and be crucified, and the third day rise again. (Luke 24:7)

    7. Any leader that refuses to be godly cannot be a good leader
    When a wicked man rules, people cry. An absolute power acquired by humans may corrupt absolutely. A God-fearing leader tends to manage his subject well without exploitation.
    When the righteous are in authority, the people rejoice: but when the wicked beareth rule, the people mourn. (Proverbs 29:2)

    8. One of the greatest qualities of an impactful leader is the ability to transform the lives of his followers
    Jesus so much transformed the lives of His disciples that even after His death people easily noticed they were with Him. David led the four-hundred disgruntles, miscreants and debtors, he eventually turned them to mighty men of valour. Aaron, Caleb, Joshua, Hur and company followed Moses, and they never remained the same. They all turned out to be remarkable great men.
    Now when they saw the boldness of Peter and John, and perceived that they were unlearned and ignorant men, they marvelled; and they took knowledge of them, that they had been with Jesus. (Acts 4:13)

    9. Good leaders should be faultless by their followers
    Scandalized leadership is an object of dispise. Leaders like prophet Samuel came out and asked the people he was leading to judge him. He wanted to know if he had done anyone any wrong, or had defrauded any one of them in any way before. They found no fault in him. He was exonurated. He had no skeleton to hid in any cupboard. Prophet Samuel was a good leader. He was not an oppressor or a task-master. No wonder, he was so confident.
    Behold, here I am: witness against me before the LORD, and before his anointed: whose ox have I taken? Or whose ass have I taken? or whom have I defrauded? whom have I oppressed? or of whose hand have I received any bribe to blind mine eyes therewith? and I will restore it you. (1 Samuel 12:3)

    10. A good leader will always stand in the gap between his followers and their circumstances
    A great leader puts his life online to find a way out for his subjects to escape the events of life-challenges. Jesus was a great leader. He offered himself for crucification to apeace God for mankind`s salvation. Moses offered his life instead of God destroying Israel for their sins. His life was on the line to save the Israelites from the wrath of God in the wilderness. He defended the flock he was leading.
    �..And Moses besought the Lord his God, and said, Lord, why doth thy wrath wax hot against thy people, which thou hast brought forth out of the land of Egypt with great power, and with a mighty hand? Wherefore should the Egyptians speak, and say, For mischief did he bring them out, to slay them in the mountains, and to consume them from the face of the earth? Turn from thy fierce wrath, and repent of this evil against thy people......And the Lord repented of the evil which he thought to do unto his people. (Exodus 32:10-14)

    11. It is very necessary for a leader to have had a good home training, and to be running a good family of his own
    It is doubtful if someone that has failed at the home-front will be able lead a church, community or nation. So, home-management is the acid-test for an effective leader. Home-management is basic to all leadership qualities. Therefore a lizard at home cannot become an aligator out-side.
    One that ruleth well his own house, having his children in subjection with all gravity; (For if a man know not how to rule his own house, how shall he take care of the church of God?) (1 Timothy 3:4-5)

    12. A leader must be a role-model and emmutable ground-breaker
    An effective leader is a mentor whose laid-down example is worthy of following. Leadership is best defined by example rather than by only the words.
    Neither as being lords over God's heritage, but being examples to the flock. (1 Peter 5:3)

    13. Leaders are only better-empowered by constant pursuit of knowledge and wisdom
    It is a true saying that knowledge is power. And not only power, it is the light. A foolish leader is a blind leader. He can only lead his blind-followers to the ditch. Only he who really knows, and knows that he knows, is a leader worthy being followed.
    Let them alone: they be blind leaders of the blind. And if the blind lead the blind, both shall fall into the ditch. (Matthew 15:14)

    14. Holy Ghost is the best companion of a leader that worths his salt
    Leadership that is not divinely steered may loose bearing, leading the followers astray. The Spirit of God is the leader of the leaders. A good leader surrenders leadership to the Holy Spirit.
    The foolishness of God is wiser than the wisest of men.
    For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God. (Romans 8:14)

    A leader is a man that is ready to risk. He understands the fact that no venture no gain. There is leadership price to pay. The higher the prize the higher the price. Big fish is never caught in shallow waters.
    Uneasy lies the head that bears the crown. To lead is not always a bed of roses. A leader`s seat is a rocky and hot chair. Good judgements and decisive actions are necessary for a leader to stand-out in acievement.
    Leadership position is therefore not meant for the easily intimidated folks. After all, it takes a lion heart to have the lion share.
    Above all, a good leader is a good shepherd. He allows no one among his followers to be lost. Jesus Christ was our perfect model of a good leader. A good shepherd of His flock.

    While I was with them in the world, I kept them in thy name: those that thou gavest me I have kept, and none of them is lost, but the son of perdition; that the scripture might be fulfilled. (John 17:12)
