Leadership Essentials: The Unglamorous Leader

Submitted by James Higginbotham on June 22, 2010 – 4:07 amNo Comment

Some think being a leader is a glamorous thing. Lots of fame, fortune, and access to “hidden secrets”. The reality of leadership is much different and lacks the excitement that many seek. That doesn’t mean that leadership is not rewarding or lacks fulfillment – it just means that our expectations need to change.

Leadership is no different than any other role within a team. It requires executing on common, everyday tasks. The tasks may be different, but eventually it becomes a day-in, day-out routine. How we deal with this will reveal quite a bit about our leadership potential and how God will be able to use us (or not).

“We all have those times when there are no flashes of light and no apparent thrill to life, where we experience nothing but the daily routine with its common everyday tasks. The routine of life is actually God’s way of saving us between our times of great inspiration which come from Him. Don’t always expect God to give you His thrilling moments, but learn to live in those common times of the drudgery of life by the power of God.” – Oswald Chambers

We must dig deep to find the excitement in the simple. We must resolve to keep moving forward even when things look like that are stagnant. We must be prepared to deal with the simple as well as the amazing moments of life.

Are you ready to keep going, even if it requires living in common times? If so, then you are ready to lead.
