The litmus test of a great leader is if you can write down the five names of people you have developed (Mike Pumphrey, religious worker)
We’ve often heard the comment that if there is no one following you, you really aren’t a leader. Pumphrey suggests a good test to evaluate leaders. It’s simply this: If you have worked with a group for a reasonable amount of time, is there any sign that future leaders are being developed and moving on to their own opportunities for leading others? If not, why?
Students are not greater than their teacher. But the student who is fully trained will become like the teacher. (Luke 6:40)
