My goal is to learn more about leadership daily. Here are a few of the principles I've learned over the past five years along with a few people I've been learning from recently:
1.. Be a Follower - In order to be a leader, I must first learn how to follow. Here are some people I currently learn from (a distance):
3. Be a Thinker - This is very new to me in the area of leadership. I enjoy thinking, but I often become so focused on 'tasks' that I fail to stop and think. So, I have learned to schedule blocks of time to think. Here are a few areas I am seeking to grow:
When I think - I take time to think in the mornings, before anyone else is awake in my home. I spend time reading, in prayer, reflecting on God's Kindness, then I simply think. There's nothing specific I think about, but I just let my thoughts begin and then apply Second Corinthians 10:5 and make sure my thoughts are in obedience to Christ.
Think Big - This one is a struggle for me, but I'm trying to learn this principle. In all areas that I lead, whether it's in ministry, home or the community, I am trying to think 'Big' in all things. Again, I am still learning with this principle. Do you have any thoughts on thinking big in leadership?
I'd love to hear what you have been learning about leadership. Comment below.
