NOW….Let me give you a couple of quotes from this new book on leadership by CRAIG HAMILTON. The book is called WISDOM IN LEADERSHIP.
You want to be a leader? Good. You want to be a great leader? You want to be the greatest? That’s good too. Be a servant. Be the greatest servant. Serve everyone you can. Everyone you meet. Be all about others; be in it for others. (p 53)
Who God wants you to be will always have an impact on what God wants you to do. Secret sins will choke your heart and erode your ministry. Deal with them tirelessly and repent of them quickly. (p 73)
Submitting to authority, being a follower, is a mark of maturity. Those who can’t follow, or are unwilling to follow another leader, shouldn’t lead. It’s a lack of character that needs to be addressed. (p 120)
Leading is pain. It’s part of the job. And if you’re planning on not being hurt then you’re planning on not being a leader. (p 135)
When it comes to how you view the world, the future, and your life, if you’re measuring your circumstances then you’re measuring the wrong thing. Your hope is not based on the shape of your circumstances but on the size of your God. (p164)
CRAIG HAMILTON is on the line. He’s an Assistant Minister at Glenmore Park in the west of our city.
CRAIG Good Evening.
Impressive book - large task … thinking through a massive body of literature.
Within Christianity there’s been - something of a - I don’t know what to call it - love-hate relationship with - the leadership literature? Why the suspicion?
Is leadership NATURAL or is it something that can be taught?
What makes a Good Leader?
