Successful Leadership starts with…
GETTING STARTED TO BE AN EFFECTIVE LEADER
Using Biblical Principles to Serve Your Male Participant!
…an obedient heart yielded to God!
1.Seek God’s WILL
2. God’s WILL reveals His WAY
3. God’s WAY according to His WILL accomplishes His WORK
True Christian reconciliation and restoration of a hurting person must accomplish His perfect will to be blessed of and empowered by God. To accomplish His WILL, these following components of restoration and reconciliation will likely be found in your life. To lead someone else, they have to be able to see what they are to become modeled in your own life.
In other words, you cannot do this work, if the motivation is anything other than being a servant of others.
We’ve all met assertive go-getters who feel the need to be in charge no matter the task at hand.
Whether it’s a group project, following an itinerary, or even just a brainstorming session, the people who lead a group of other people need to be in charge and they will make sure everyone knows it.
Always being in charge, however, doesn’t automatically translate to good leadership.
Good small group male leaders know their calling, gifting, who the healer is, and other areas of expertise–they work for the good of the man’s restoration and not themselves. They know when to stand aside and hand over the baton to the healer, JESUS CHRIST!
While it’s important to have ambition, a remarkably good leader dedicates their energies first to the cause of Jesus Christ, then to the team, the center you serve alongside and lastly to him, the client.
Leadership often comes with power, but that’s not its defining characteristic.
If you take on a project hoping to reap only self-benefit, it will show in its outcome and be reflected on the morale of your team. Remember, to be great in God’s Kingdom, you must be a servant of all.
Remarkably good leaders don’t want to rule their team or their client. Instead, they want to work together.
This means they are open to listening to new ideas or projects and are not afraid of seeking advice and learning from others.
Most importantly, remarkably good leaders also listen to criticism and don’t become defensive or upset when a team member or client voices a concern or points out an inconsistency or mistake.
Remarkably good leaders know the difference between dictating and leading.
Dictating involves scaring team members into getting results. Leading involves inspiring people to give the best they have to achieve said results.
Remarkably good leaders inspire their team members to become the best version of themselves that they can be.
They build solid foundations, and are not afraid of sharing knowledge. If you are always searching for ways to make the people around you grow, they will be inspired to do so and their work will reflect how proud they are to be part of your recovery group.
