Have you ever wondered what qualifies a person to be a leader? Most natural leaders don’t aspire to be great leaders; they aspire to be great persons. Personal qualifications lead to leadership qualifications. When leaders lead their own lives well, others naturally want to follow.
Consider Mother Theresa of Calcutta, India. It is doubtful she ever said, “I am going to set out to be a great leader!” Yet that is what she became by determining to be the person God created her to be. She developed personal qualities that became leadership qualities.
If we want out leadership to last, we must pay attention to four crucial elements:
a) Character enables us to do what is right even when it seems difficult.
a) Perspective enables us to understand what must happen to reach a goal.
a) Courage enables us to initiate and take the risks to step out toward a worthy goal.
a) Favor enables us to attract and empower others to join us in the cause.
