Unique Leadership is Needed

Do you know someone who possesses the character of unique leadership?

Think of a person in your office, organization, or church that you would see as a strong leader.

Do these qualities describe that person?

  1. She is a person of conviction.
  2. He has principles.
  3. She is a problem-solver.

Each of these characteristics is unique.

Those Who Possess Unique Leadership Skills Have Convictions

Leading others is a spiritual matter.

Leadership comes from conviction.

Without a deep conviction, you are merely a thinker.

Without a conviction that drives your plans and direction, you will merely be part of the crowd.

Unique leaders have convictions that drive them forward.

Those Who Possess Unique Leadership Skills Show Principles in All They Do

Leonardo da Vinci once said, “I love those who can smile in trouble, who can gather strength from distress, and grow brave by reflection. ‘Tis the business of little minds to shrink, but they whose heart is firm, and whose conscience approves their conduct, will pursue their principles unto death.”

Those Who Possess Unique Leadership Skills Solve Problems

Not everyone can solve problems.  However, unique, gifted leaders have skills to resolve issues within their organizations.

Here four characteristics of a good problem solver found in an article by Glen Llopis entitled “The 4 Most Effective Ways Leaders Solve Problems.”

1.  Transparent Communication

“Problem solving requires transparent communication where everyone’s concerns and points of view are freely expressed.”

2.  Break Down Silos

“Transparent communication requires you to break down silos and enable a boundary-less organization whose culture is focused on the betterment of a healthier whole.”

3.  Open-minded People

“Breaking down silos and communication barriers requires people to be open-minded.”

4.  A Solid Foundational Strategy

“Without strategy, change is merely substitution, not evolution.”
