Leaders & Personality

Leaders & Personality


“My boss is a big personality — the type who loves the stage and rallies staff with rah-rah enthusiasm. He gave me a resolution for 2019 to be a more vocal leader like him, but that isn’t really my style. I’m much more reserved, but people seem to enjoy working for me too. Do I have to be an outspoken personality to be considered a strong leader, even if it isn’t authentic? Is it fair for me to be judged like that?”

Don’t know if a strong personality is needed for leadership but I do know a whole lot of love, godly love, is required for any position of leadership.

The only kind of personality worth having as a leader is to be crucified unto the death of self.

Let it be mentioned that being a leader that does only what is best, verses what they want, for others will not often be popular.

To appreciate a godly leader one has to hunger and thirst for righteousness ~ a rare laborer indeed.

Few desire righteousness while most grumble-gossip against godly leadership and this is why Jesus ends by stating,  whoever welcomes me welcomes not me but the one who sent me.

 

Then they came to Capernaum; and when Jesus was in the house he asked them, “What were you arguing about on the way?”

But they were silent, for on the way they had argued with one another who was the greatest.

Jesus sat down, called the twelve, and said to them, “Whoever wants to be first must be last of all and servant of all.”

Then he took a little child and put it among them; and taking it in his arms, he said to them,

“Whoever welcomes one such child in my name welcomes me, and whoever welcomes me welcomes not me but the one who sent me.”

(Mark 9:33-37)

“Authenticity is important — unless of course one is authentically a jerk, right? Big personalities often get the most attention because, well, they call attention to themselves and the media likes to cover big personalities. But that isn’t a prerequisite for effective leadership or success. Authentic integrity, talent, respect, encouragement, humility, recognition and reward are leadership qualities that will always be successful — regardless of whether they are wrapped in rah-rah enthusiasm or quiet calm. You do you, and let your staff and the performance of your team be the best indicators of your leadership success.”
