Good day Steemians,
Today I will talking about leadership, and the qualities of a good leader according to my own understanding and also in Christian ways
WHAT IS LEADERSHIP?
Leadership is a capability to lead, its an acts of Organizin, Motivating, Inspiring, and Directing a group of people towards getting a purpose or goals.
Everyone had the capability of been a leader, the moment we are given birth, we are leaders. We have our lives to dictate, but its all depends on how individuals acts before he/she becomes a leader.
We have different types of leaders but I will only expatiate on 2, which include;
- CIRCULAR LEADERS; examples includes our politicians like President, Senators, Governors, Chairman etc. Those who are elected my people into one office or the other.
** SPIRITUAL LEADERS: examples includes Pastors, Prophets and men of God duly appointed by God into a position of a leader. Examples of Biblical leaders are Moses, Joshua, David, Solomon, Paul and even Jesus Christ
