10 Characteristics of Lousy Leaders

Everybody can spot qualities of lousy leadership when is it directed at them. When the disciples were arguing about who was the greatest among them, Jesus said, “Let the greatest among you become as the youngest, and the leader as one who serves. For who is the greater, one who reclines at table or one who serves? … But I am among you as the One who serves.” (Luke 22:26-27) Michael describes ten characteristics of lousy leaders, those who are not servant-leaders.

The Hallmark of a Healthy Christian Leader

Make no mistake, this mournful heart condition that He forms in us, of longing for the things of Christ to be seen and established and over all, is indeed blessed: not a selfish cocktail of leadership insecurity and lime-light grabbing tendency; not a bunch of immature responses of the flesh to the people we’re called to love and the world we’re called to as Priests; but a deep work of the Spirit of God in our lives to hate sin, kill sin and lead towards His salvation.

Lewis charted 24 different leadership styles in his book “When Cultures Collide.” This is a ground-breaking book when it comes to finding clues to understanding of intercultural communication. The following leadership infographic is quite fascinating!

Under-Delegation vs. Over-Delegation

Delegation is also the number one development tool you possess as a leader. No amount of education (important), training (also important) or feedback (very important) can substitute for direct responsibility. Emerging leaders need to learn under the yoke of responsibility. Look back at your own growth as a leader to see the truth of this. But there is a danger in both under-delegating and over-delegating.

Caring for Your Soul in Times of Change

Water is essential to life, and in some areas of the world, humans must dig deep wells to keep water readily available. In the midst of organizational change, we desperately need to draw on our spiritual resources. How easily we do this may depend on our spiritual habits – our rhythms of life. How deep have we dug our spiritual wells?

Mentoring for Kingdom Potential

Like towering trees in a dense forest, leaders in Jesus’ time were egocentric, oppressive, and in charge. They shut out much needed light for emerging leaders. Perhaps this is why Jesus never described His disciples as leaders. He didn’t want future leaders of His church to absorb those leadership values. The church’s healthy beginning was linked to Jesus’ sacrificial resolve to lead by focusing on His followers’ highest potential. Rick uses examples from the beginning of his ministry as a pastor to illustrate how experienced Christians can have a tremendous impact on younger, less mature Christians through mentoring.
