Leader (Definition): the person who leads or commands a group, organization, or country.
There are umpteen articles on leadership or how to become a good leader,
but I would like to share with you some important points I have learnt over a period of time.
Briefly these can be grouped as:
# Motive - Why do you want to be a leader?
The reason motive plays an important role is because there will be good days and bad days. Having the right motive:
The books of Timothy in the Bible contain advice for leaders. 1 Timothy contains instructions for a new leader, and 2 Timothy contains advice for an established leader in the face of a storm.
# Entrustment - A privilege not an entitlement
A good leader can be entrusted with something that is someone else's - like Joseph or Daniel (refer to the books of Genesis and Daniel respectively in the Bible). He ensures that what has been entrusted to him multiplies and brings more benefit to all. This same principle applies to what you need to look for in people that you want to entrust work to or to lead.
# Be a student of life, Be a student for life
To know if your leadership is successful or not, ask the question: IF THEY DID NOT HAVE TO FOLLOW YOU, WOULD THEY?
