Accept the Responsibility of Leadership

“Extraordinary leaders know that leadership gifts and abilities are not for their own benefit. The gift of leadership is a gift to you to give to others. Extraordinary leaders are other-centric. They recognize that leadership at its core is an act of service. It’s living out the second half of the Great Commission: Love God. Love  others.

“Jesus modeled the responsibility of leadership in the way he engaged with his disciples in everyday life. From washing their feet in an act of humility and service, to directing them to feed the thousands, to sharing quiet times of prayer and reflection, to painting the picture of their responsibility once he is gone, Jesus loved and led his disciples with the purpose of helping them grow and develop. It wasn’t about him; it was about them.”

Quote by Jenni Catron in her book, “The 4 Dimensions of Extraordinary Leadership” on page 14.
