Leadership Issues: Compassion Part 3
What to Cry About-Micah 1:1-9
The more leaders mature, the more value they place on people. When all is said and done, leadership isn’t about strategy, marketing, organization, efficiency, our high- quality products, but about people. Micah hurt when others hurt, even though they were in the wrong. The high value he placed on people teaches us . . .
- People are an organization’s most appreciable asset.
- People skills are a leader’s most important asset.
- If you are good with people, you can lead in a variety of contexts.
- You can have people skills and not be a good leader, but you cannot be a good leader without people skills.
Love Moves Jesus to Lead-Mark 6:34
Jesus’ leadership was empowered not by a sense of duty or obligation, or by a desire to build an image, but by compassion. Great leaders, like Jesus, build a deep love for people that moves them to do far more than obligation could ever induce. Do you deeply love those you lead?
