To Be A Great Leader, You Must Be A Great Listener...

Leadership is not about making decisions on your own. It's about owning decisions once they are made.

To be a great leader, you must be a great listener. Here's why...

+ You are probably not the smartest person in the church/organization you lead. You are just the leader.

+ What and who you listen to will determine what you do.

+ The decisions you make as a leader are judged by the people in the church/organization you lead. Your private decisions will be judged publicly.

Let the wise listen and add to their learning,
and let the discerning get guidance." (Proverbs 1:5)
