Putting Your Heart Into Leadership

Here are three tips for developing your leadership heart:

  • Let Others - it takes a team, not an individual, to get things done in God’s Kingdom
  • Give Credit - make sure your team gets the credit, not just you, when things go right or wrong
  • Keep Focus - it is easy to think you are the reason the team succeeds. Don’t build a golden calf for yourself. Keep everyone focused on God not you.

Developing your leadership heart takes effort. It means spending time in God’s Word. It means spending time listening to God. It means spending time doing what God wants us to do (not what we want). It also means spending time helping others develop the same focus.
