What's a Leader's Job?

For the sake of simplicity, I forced myself to boil down the bare essentials of what I think a leader absolutely has to do to serve others well...

· Pray… "Get on your knees and fight like a man!”
· Motivate (vision)… “Don’t underestimate the power of a Story.”
· Mobilize (gifted placement)… “Serve from your Strengths.”
· Mentor (train/coach)… “You can only EXPECT what you have EXPLAINED."
· Measure (track results)… "INSPECT what you EXPECT!”

I like memorable slogans so I added those.
I think that effective leaders intentionally and rhythmically cycle between these essentials.

  1. I think it's official - I'm a poor leader.

    When God uses me, we'll all be surprised.

    I am contemplating what you wrote. Good stuff.
