In Matthew 10:45,
Jesus said, “The Son of Man came not to be served but to serve, and to give his life a ransom for many. I believe Jesus laid the foundation for what a leader aspires to be.
Firstly, I believe a leader always tries to feel comfortable in their own skin. Not afraid to make mistakes but always confident about their strengths.
Secondly, I rate a leader who continually displays a great sense of humour. Furthermore not only laugh at themselves but be able to laugh along with others as it builds a positive environment.
Thirdly, a respected leader constantly shows compassion even under duress and their decision- making never considers a favourable outcome for themselves. Hence, their intention is that their actions will benefit others.
Finally, the most admired leaders are committed to their own beliefs even if it means that their standing with others will place them at risk. In some cases like Jesus they lose their life for them.
This I believe is what sets the greatest leaders apart.
