A true leader has the confidence to stand alone, the courage to make tough decisions, and the compassion to listen. (Douglas McArthur, late military leader)

McArthur defines a great leader in three simple concepts: 1) the confidence that does not depend on others for the courage 2) to make choices that are not easy and may be challenged, and 3) the consideration of others that gives them the right to be heard. That’s a rare combination worth developing.

Wise and knowledgeable leaders bring stability (Proverbs 12:14). If God has given you leadership ability, take the responsibility seriously. (Romans 12:8)
