7 Lessons We Can Learn From Jesus On Leadership by edifyme: 6:37pm On Apr 21, 2017
Jesus is the utmost leader in the chronicle of mankind. A young carpenter who came from a small town of no acclaim and associated with 12 people to spread a movement that would eventually shape the rest of the world. A multitude of people followed His teaching when He was on earth, and even after His accession over Two thousand years ago; Christianity is still multiplying across the globe.

Jesus was an outstanding leader during His time on earth and can teach us a few things about being a leader of impact. Here are seven things to keep in mind as you tackle the week ahead:
Jesus loved people of all tribal and economic backgrounds. Seeing people’s lives enhanced and transformed for the better drove Jesus in every single thing He did. As leaders, if we want to be noteworthy, our task on earth must be powered by our longing to see people flourish. True significant leaders want to see other people thrive in their gifts, conviction, talents and personal growth.

Have a servant heart.

Jesus understood that His leadership position wasn’t a place of dominance but a place of servant-hood. His motivation was always on serving the needs of His disciples and devotees. He never had an arrogance of privilege but always operated in meekness serving those around Him. Jesus was never an untouchable or distant leader. He was always in the center of those He served. Leaders must understandthat the higher in leadership or accountability we are, the more privileges we lose to ourselves because our job is to serve the needs of those around us.

Build a Great team.

Jesus knew that He couldn’t do much without a team of people around Him. So, He enlisted twelve disciples who joined with Him spreading the gospel. As leaders, we must recognize the significance of having a team of people around us to task us, mold us and work with us.

We were not meant to live alone or work alone. If we ever want to achieve anything substantial, it’s going to take an amalgamation of brains and sweats to bring vision to existence. Without a rock-solid team of people we can trust and depend on, our best attempts at building something consequential will be unsuccessful.

Enable others to use their gifts.

Jesus comprehended that as leaders, we cannot do it all or be everywhere at once. He inspired people around Him to go out and fulfill His mission. As leaders, we must grasp that our mission will never be accomplished to our maximum potential until we learn to inspire those around us.

Without speaking to or building the strengths of those around us, we are missing out on seeing them reach their full potentials

Meet the needs of others.

Jesus understood that true leaders meet the needs of those around them. He knew that meeting

Great post.....
The one quality that we keep forgetting: let Christ be the example and measuring stick.
All of this debating about scripture...trying to win arguments, criticizing folks, calling names...just baffles me! Why?
So what you know scripture? I do too...probably more than most folks here.
But what's going on in that heart of yours?
Is it like Christ' heart?
How do the scriptures translate into practical Christianity?
That wasn't Christ' method AT ALL.
Up in here calling names....
That's expected from the "Free-Thinkers"... but why the professed Christians??
That behavior is disgusting...very sickening.
Then we wonder why folks want no part of Christianity..
Yet absolutely NO humility or kindness shown.
Christ was not an offensive man.
He pointed out the consequences of sin...separation from Him etc.,
But He showed the people the path to Him.
He was gentle....this egotistical behavior in here is beyond repulsive. We must work on this attitude Christians.
Sorry sir...needed to say this.
