SELF-LEADERSHIP & SELF-MANAGEMENT
Proverbs 25:28 “self-control and discipline”
The cover of TIME Magazine asked the question, “Who’s in Charge?” and answered the question with “the nation calls for leadership and there’s no one home.”
We are presently experiencing a leadership crisis that is without precedent and the fundamental issue is not charisma—it’s CHARACTER.
Leaders today find themselves out of control, living their lives and doing ministry as if on auto-pilot. THE ANSWER? You have to MANAGE you! You have to LEAD you! FIRST.
You have to both manage and lead your life via self-discipline and self-control; along with gaining a healthy perspective and maintaining a proper focus. But the overwhelming majority of leaders today in the ministry and marketplace do not know how to do this.
Research and experience now tell us that “The first job of leadership is getting the best out of yourself.” So, we should never settle for status-quo or be what others try to make us. We can learn to become the best version of our authentic selves via leading and managing ourselves first.
But scripture makes it clear—this is not going to be a “walk in the park.”
1 Corinthians 9:27 explains clearly that we must be disciplined, self-controlled and TRAINED like runners and boxers! We must get out of our self-created comfort zones.
So, this LAB looks into the Mystique of Leadership along with the paradoxical terms and concepts surrounding the terms leadership and management. The LAB discusses how these two concepts impact us as we strive to become the best versions of ourselves.
