Effective leadership is not about making speeches or being liked; leadership is defined by results not attributes. (Peter Drucker, late management consultant)
In an election year you hear a lot of political supporters spouting the attributes and abilities of the various nominees. To hear them, you would think that the candidates are stellar in every respect and provide unending benefits for their constituency. Achievement, however, may be just as important as attributes. Results demonstrate the true value of the leader.
Fear of the Lord is the foundation of wisdom. Knowledge of the Holy One results in good judgment. (Proverbs 9:10)
Wisdom is shown to be right by its results. (Matthew 11:19)
