Today we’re diving deep into the concept of leadership through the lens of Jesus’ teachings. In this episode, we’re going to be exploring the book “Lead Like Jesus, Revisited” by Ken Blanchard, Phil Hodges, and Phyllis Hendry. We’ll be examining the qualities and characteristics that make Christian leaders effective, with a particular focus on the importance of humility and love.
So, what does it really mean to lead like Jesus? We’ll be talking about how true Christian leaders prioritize humility over authority and power, and why leading with love and treating others with kindness and gentleness is so important.
We’ll be exploring the internal struggles that leaders face when trying to embody the qualities of Jesus in practice. We’ll talk about the tension between aspiration and implementation, and how leaders can navigate those tricky waters.
I discuss the negative impact of ego on leadership emphasizing the importance of putting God at the center and overcoming ego-driven behaviors such as pride and fear. We’ll also touch on the significance of seeking solitude and reflection in order to connect with God’s guidance and wisdom.
It is important to align one’s self-worth with how God sees and values individuals. I’ll emphasize the need to focus on eternal treasures rather than worldly possessions and achievements.
