Effective leaders

My friend Matt shared a vision and new direction for his company with a friend. His companion reacted by claiming, “That will never work.” Matt walked away feeling discouraged and disappointed. After further prayer and reflection Matt pushed ahead anyway.

One of the qualities I admire about good leaders is their willingness to go against the flow.  Good leaders are not conformed or influenced by their environment, but initiate change and direction based on wisdom, vision, and passion. 

In Romans 12:2, Paul wrote, “Do not conform any longer to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind.”

Good leadership starts with wisdom, which often leads to innovation and new directions.  Meditate on God’s Word and allow His wisdom to transform and direct your steps.
