Notes From ‘Lead Like Jesus’

lead like jesus

Started reading Lead Like Jesus: Lessons from the Greatest Leadership Role Model of All Time by Ken Blanchard.

Mr. Blanchard spoke to our church via video a few weeks ago. He talked about the difficult circumstance that he and his family experienced recently when their home was destroyed in the San Diego fires.

A few notes………..

– The actions of a leader that create influence are not always obvious to those being led.

– For followers of Jesus, servant leadership isn’t an option; it’s a mandate.

– Transformational Leadership Model: 1) Personal Leadership 2) One-on-One Leadership 3) Team/Family Leadership 4) Organizational/Community Leadership

– Effective leadership starts on the inside.

– Every leader must answer two critical questions: 1) Whose am I? 2) Who am I?

– Without trust, it is impossible for any organization to function effectively.

– If a leader has a self-serving perspective, people will never move toward him or her.

– ….when Jesus began His ministry on earth, He did not start at the organizational level.

– He did not isolate Himself from those who disagreed; He embraced those who disagreed.

– Leading like Jesus involves the alignment of four leadership domains: heart, head, hands, and habits.
