"The Million Dollar Question"
In this session you will discover some of the basics on why leaders are not born, but are developed. And also clarify some misconceptions or misunderstandings about the whole concept of leadership.
Additionally, you will also learn some of the most common myths about leadership, which will encourage you and also provide some clarity in regards to why leaders need to be developed.
God did not appoint or anoint only a certain group of individuals to be leaders, but has given each and every person the ability to discover their inner purpose and calling and to come into their full potential and maturity, as we allow the Holy Spirit to work in us and through us.
In this session you will learn from Biblical leaders & role models (Moses, Samuel, Esther, King David and Jesus) who also had to be formed and developed and this process took some time and preparation.
Also, you will learn why it takes a leader to form another leader and Proverbs 27:17 portrays it this way:
"As iron sharpens iron, so a man sharpens the countenance of his friend." (NKJV)
"As iron sharpens iron, so people can improve each other." (EXB)
And in a humorous way, John C. Maxwell summed up leadership this way by saying, "If you say that you are a leader and no one is following you, then you are just taking a walk."
In this session you will understand why Jesus often times rebuked and even exposed the church (religious) leaders of His time.
Also, you will have the opportunity to do a personal leadership assessment questionnaire by answering ten questions that relate to your heart; to your attitude; to your discipline and your dedication. And at the end you will be able to add up your total score to determine your current leadership level.
And finally, this lesson concludes with examples of radical leadership growth and development of historical and influential individuals (Abraham Lincoln, Mother Teresa, Walt Disney etc.). You will discover that their personal life journey was not easy and even their background did not qualify them to become whom they have become and to accomplish the things which they did!
