    The gift of leadership, not just talent.

  3. Kelli says:

    Contagious passion.

  4. Roseann says:

    Sold out love for Jesus and love for people! I know that we can have love for people,but our human love is so limited and unable to reflect God’s perfect love which is without limits…Also important is to keep God’s interests before all others. This is something I know I struggle to keep straight in my own life,but thankfully,the Holy Spirit always gets me back on course! I was reminded of this again in reading Matthew this morning: Jesus speaking to Peter.

    I think Jim Collins has it right: Leaders who are humble, but passionately driven to do what’s best for the organization.

  8. Steve says:

    Someone who practices what they preach and leads from the trenches.

  9. Jan Owen says:

    Someone who is humble and willing to let others help. I’m not interested in simply following, but in doing ministry TOGETHER.

  10. Ben Hammond says:

    I agree with Jay. Transparency, honesty. When I was younger and helping with a youth group I had a leader tell me, “It’s game time – time to put on the game face.” I don’t agree with that anymore. Obviously there is a difference between being honest about having a bad day and being a jerk because of a bad day (that’s not being transparent, that’s just being a jerk).

  12. “Good leaders make people feel that they’re at the very heart of things, not at the periphery. Everyone feels that he or she makes a difference to the success of the organization. When that happens people feel centered and that gives their work meaning.”

  13. Daniel says:

    Quick to listen.

    Slow to speak.

    Genuine love for others that empowers and helps to fulfill the dreams of people around them.

    Interested more in building The Kingdom vs his/her kingdom.

    I use the NT Greek word parrhesia, sometimes translated “boldness,” sometimes “openness.”

  16. Julie Vogt says:

    Someone who keeps learning and is teachable…someone who is not afraid to speak truth in love….someone who encourages people spiritual and is able to keep the main thing the main thing. I guess that’s 3 things : )

  17. Mike McClure says:

    These are Paul’s words to us from 1 Cor 11:1
    “Follow my example, as I follow the example of Christ.”(NIV)
    As I look for a leader to follow, I want to understand his/her guiding principles. Ken Blanchard published an audio set “Lead Like Jesus” that contains testimonies of strong leaders in large and small corporations who follow these principles.

  18. Character and competency go hand in hand for me. However, with that said, a good sense of humor can go along way (laughing at oneself, laughing with others, and occasionally “at” others on your team as well (laughing as a team is just one of many key components for building great team symmetry). The team member who doesn’t know how to laugh and takes everything so serious really SUCKS…like the Joker (in Batman) says, “WHY SO SERIOUS?!).
