Thank you for joining our last monthly zoom call! Whether you joined us live or caught the replay afterward, I hope your leadership process was enhanced by our discussion of the Transformational Leader. Our conversation was framed by four great leaders who have had a major impact on my life and ministry. Gideon Thompson, Richard Hilton, Sam Chand and John Maxwell have left an indelible mark on my philosophy of transformational leadership. These ideas we discussed resonated with so many of you. I wanted to review them again.
Transformational Leaders Must Be Transformed
I learned at the onset of my leadership journey that I couldn’t be an agent of change unless I was a product of change! To the degree you are willing to be changed will determine how much change you can catalyze. Bishop Thompson mirrored the power of prayer and scripture to change the leader first! Be determined to be a leader who is being changed by the tools you give others.
Transformational Leaders See People as the Greatest Asset
One of the most powerful, life-changing perspectives would echo from the teaching of Richard Hilton. “Jesus is not interested in crowds; He’s interested in people.” From that moment on my strategy was to touch individuals, not draw crowds. I knew that the same way Jesus fed one, healed one, spoke to one, and then multitudes came. Make EVERYONE feel like they are all that matters when you talk to them.
Transformational Leaders Make Wise Decisions
When I heard Sam Chand say, “Don’t make decisions based on what you can afford because you will never do anything!” It hit me that while we need to know what a decision costs, there are other factors to consider in every wise decision. Is it the right thing to do? Does it align with our mission, vision and values? Is it possible?
Transformational leaders never see themselves as the end of it all but are constantly looking to add value to others and be a source of change. You can do this!
