Leaders need their own sense of right and wrong and the stabilization produced by their own moral compass. Our decisions can’t be made based upon public opinion or even the convictions of others. Leaders are tasked with helping people find their way and as guides, we must know our way. The leader has and will not reach perfection but must know his/her way well enough to correct their path when they drift. Leaders can’t guide skillfully without the skills derived from their walk, skills that are refined as they recover from the battles of life.
Thus, we must learn to lead ourselves, especially in areas of morality. This will never be achieved by just following a code or list of rules. Building strong relationships with like-minded mentors and leaders who can serve as accountability partners can go a long way in ensuring you are kept in check.
In my new book, Living at the Next Level, Leaders Edition, my goal is to help you establish your compass by building a relationship with God. Leading is much more fulfilling when it flows from a life that’s led by a vibrant friendship with God. Staying on track with God’s purpose can become the adventure of a lifetime!
Today, I invite you to lift your heart to the Leader of the Universe and see beyond the external mechanics of leadership, and to understand that your leadership journey has been a combination of good and bad things. Victories and losses will transform your thinking and equip you to lead with authenticity!
This coming year is your time to embrace life and leadership at the next level! You're already there, now, just learn to live it out!
