Bringing out the best in people

10 Feb

One of my all-time favorite books is “Learning to Lead” by Fred Smith. The subtitle of the book is, Bringing out the best in people. I believe that explains a great deal about our leadership.

Someone once said “the true test of inspiration is action.” what we say as leaders, shouldn’t just motivate people, but inspire them to action. To make a life change and to ultimately make a difference.

Helping others to achieve success, is part of the formula of ones own personal success. How many people am I willing to help be great? Is a question every leader must ask.

The Apostle Paul understood the process of helping to shape believers into the image of Christ and to inspire them to mature in their devotion to him.

This is what leadership is all about: raising people’s level of maturity. (page 156) “We raise it first by bringing knowledge, then understanding, and eventually wisdom.” (How to apply that knowledge)

As Pastors, Coaches, and Leaders, people should be our primary focus. Not just leading them, but loving them. And we should not want to lead them
More than we love them and keep bringing out the best in them as our Godly assignment.
