The 21 Most powerful minutes in a leader’s day
Written by John c. Maxwell

LEADERSHIP THOUGHT FOR THE DAY:

Effective leadership begins with being yourself.

 

 

He who earnestly seeks good finds favor, but trouble will come to him who seeks evil.

                                                                                                  Proverbs 11:27 (NKJV)

 

  1. HOW OTHERS SEE YOU

    The outermost layer is the image that others have of you. For better or worse, people have  opinions about you—as a person, as a leader, as a parent or child.

 

  1. HOW YOU WANT OTHERS TO SEE YOU

     The weaker or more insecure a leader is, the more he tries to get others to perceive that he is different from the way he really is.

 

  1. HOW YOU SEE YOURSELF

     Accurate self-knowledge takes time and intentional effort. It requires growing, exploring, and taking risks. And even a good leader who understands himself pretty well sometimes needs an adjustment in his self-perception.

 

  1. WHO YOU REALLY ARE

      For You formed my inward parts; You covered me in my mother’s womb. I will praise You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made; Marvelous are Your works, And that my soul knows very well. My frame was not hidden from You, When I was made in secret, And skillfully wrought in the lowest parts of the earth. Your eyes saw my substance, being yet unformed. And in Your book they all were written, The days fashioned for me, When as yet there were none of them. (Ps. 139:13-16 NKJV)

 

      Each of us should seek to discover how God has made us. That process helps us to become the best leaders we can be.
