Wayne Pederson, President of HCJB Global, shared four quotes with me the other day about 3 qualities of leadership:
First, excellence: Winston Churchill said, “Excellence is. . .caring more than others think is wise; risking more than others think is safe; dreaming more than others think is practical. Expecting more than others think is possible.”
Second, vision: Solomon said “Where there is no vision, people lose heart”. And, we know that vision must come from the leader.
Third, quality: William Foster observed that, “Quality is never an accident: It is always the result of high intention, sincere effort, intelligent direction and skillful execution.”
Then, Wayne said this: “Great things are accomplished by great men and women with a great sense of caring, thinking, dreaming, risking, and anticipating.”
So, I ask myself, what am I doing today in my ministry to foster that kind of excellence?
