16 Signs That A Leader Has Lost His Mind

1 – He refuses to admit his mistakes.
2 – He begins to blame the problems on people or circumstances rather than actually seeking out what the problem might be.
3 – He refuses to listen to the team assembled around him.
4 – He fights every idea that isn’t his own, thinking his originality is what must keep the church afloat.
5 – He refuses to face reality.
6 – He is unwilling to make the necessary changes because it would be highly unpopular.
7 – He tries to listen to what everyone has to say about every situation.
8 – He begins to believe that God’s favor on his life is because of how good he is rather than because of how good God is!
9 – He believes that he can’t learn anything from churches that are smaller than his. (This would be arrogance!)
10 – He abuses his staff to accomplish his agenda rather than leading them to accomplish God’s.
11 – He fears asking for commitment because of how people may perceive him.
12 – He becomes obsessed with the way things are rather than how they should be.
13 – He views himself as an expert.
14 – He tries to motivate with fear rather than vision.
15 – He doesn’t seek fresh revelation from God and often goes back to what has been done instead of seeking direction for what has never been done.
16 – He stops taking risks and becomes obsessed with playing it safe.
