Traits of Great Leadership by Angeline Lawrence

August 18, 2014
Leadership is crucial to the vitality of any business or organization. Jesus Christ mandated that great leaders become as the servant to thier subordinates. Matthew 23:11-12 stresses the need for humility in leaders. 
Likewise, companies that have gone from subpar to outstanding had CEOs that were classified as Level 5 Executives.  Jim Collins, author of "Good to Great: Why Some Companies Make the Leap and Others Don't," defines such leadership as Humility + Will.

Listen in as I discuss the characteristics of great leaders and their need for humility versus bravado.
