Notes from Lead Like Jesus – Part 1

More ‘Aha!’ ideas from Lead Like Jesus. That is what Author Ken Blanchard calls them.

– The most persistent barrier to leading like Jesus is a heart motivated by self-interest.

– As you consider the heart issue of leadership, a primary question you have to ask yourself is “Am I a servant leader or a self-serving leader?”

– Driven people think they own everything……Called people, on the other hand, believe everything is on loan.

– 3 distinctive patterns of behavior: 1) how you handle feedback 2) how you handle successor planning 3) your perspective of who you think leads and who follows

– Our leadership legacy is not just limited to what we accomplished, but it includes what we leave behind.

– Jesus modeled the heart of a servant leader by investing most of His ministry time training and equipping the disciples for leadership. (John 15:15)

– The term leader is mentioned only six times in the King James Version of the Bible, while the term servant is mentioned more than nine hundred times.

– If your sense of security is based on what others think, then you don’t have any security at all.

– Self-serving leaders react…..servant leaders respond.

– Things that ‘Edge God Out’….Pride and Fear

– The need to compare and draw comfort from comparisons to others is a sign of false pride, insecurity, and fear of inadequacy.

– If God is the object of our worship, the source of our security and self-worth, and our only audience and authority, false pride and fear are replaced by humility and God-grounded confidence.

– People with humility don’t think less of themselves; they just think of themselves less.

– Humility is realizing and emphasizing the importance of others. It is not putting yourself down; it is lifting others up.
