Leadership Characteristics

Leaders motivate–they inspire others to be better than themselves, to reach for something bigger than themselves.  Leaders are positive, they help people see potential not obstacles.

Leaders prioritize–they clarify purpose and set boundaries.

Leaders provide perspective–they see the big picture, they understand the consequences of decisions but are not limited by current negative circumstances.

Leaders give permission to others to cause change.  They give people permission to fail in the attempt to improve.

And significant Christian leaders pray.  They have leadership gifts, drive and motivations, but they are dependent on God.  They understand they are are limited, but God is not.  They intercede for others knowing that people are the ministry.
