Here Are 7 Steps to Become an Effective Leader:
Recognize that leadership is a gift, an art, a craft…that has to be continually developed. Seek out and be willing to learn from effective leaders who have developed this craft we call leadership.
Realize the fact that although leadership is a craft, it is not rocket science. STOP MAKING IT SO DIFFICULT. I repeat, unless you are a leader at NASA, your leadership role is not rocket science; chill-out and quit making things so hard on yourself and others. BTW- If you are a leader at NASA or a rocket scientist, you should probably be asking the tough question: “Is what we do still necessary or relevant?” Except the call, and know you are chosen for the oil.
Remember The Golden Rule: “Do unto others as you would have others do unto you!” Most leaders barely remember the bronze rule, let alone The Golden Rule. As a leader, it’s important to care about your people, to love your people, to care about their interests, care about their success…to treat them how you would want and expect someone to treat you. Remember in order to become an effective leader, you have to understand that “Relationships Matter!”Love is the key and with out it everything else do not matter.
Replicate what works and don’t force things that don’t work. Don’t try to be a replicate of another leader or simply replicate what you have read in a book, but rather replicate the effective “What Works” concept into who you are and what you do! Be an original, know that there is one you and no one can work your gift except YOU!!!
Resurrect a dying team member; an effective leader has the ability to take a dying team (members) on the verge of being hurt, or broken and help resurrect them into a story that begins with this sentence…“There was a time when I was down and lost and my leader spoke life into me…Wow, look at how successful they are now!”
Reinvent the way leadership is carried out! Break the box, find a new way, figure out what works for you, don’t be scared to be different, reinvent what might has been seen as irrefutable. Reinvent out of hunger, creativity, thinking, believing, seeking etc.; don’t reinvent for the sake of reinventing! “Don’t reinvent the wheel” just be yourself. Trust in the Holy Spirit and the God in you, and it will lead and guide you into truth.
Watch God reign and rule in your life, and watch his manifesting Glory, work through you like never before.
The 7 R's of leadership are all important to realize and Reign stood out to me because once I began to realize who God called me to be that I could begin to allow God to have full reign in my life, and to watch his glory manifest
Hey, Dr. Jacqueline Jones-Brown,
I really enjoy reading your list. Also, I think that it's so important that we as spiritual leaders consistently (RE)invent ourselves to serve the people better.
Dr. Jacqueline Jones-Brown said:
Yes. This information is so timely as I work towards building my leadership company that assist novice leaders, recent graduates, entry-level professionals, and clients looking to reenter the workforce. As we shift into spiritual leadership, it's so important that we understand the importance of servicing in such a compacity.
My role in life is being a effective leader.
I love this, it is wonderful to know the truth
