Effective Communication

Paul still has ambition, Effective Communication Review and there is nothing wrong with ambition, provided it is the right kind of ambition. Keep learning and keep leading. That is what Paul demonstrated throughout his entire life as a disciple and apostle.Sandy Shaw is Pastor of Nairn Christian Fellowship, Chaplain at Inverness Prison, and Nairn Academy, and serves on The Children's Panel in Scotland, and has travelled extensively over these past years teaching, speaking, in America, Canada, South Africa, Australia, making 12 visits to Israel conducting Tours and Pilgrimages, and most recently in Uganda and Kenya, ministering at Pastors and Leaders Seminars, in the poor areas surrounding Kampala, Nairobi, Mombasa and Kisumu.Leaders can be defined by their attributes, the things that make them unique and that cause them to stand out. Today we are going to review some of these attributes like: Self-Control, A Sense of Justice, A Pleasing Personality, and Sympathy and Understanding.While the attributes I have listed are just a few of many different attributes of a leader the one's I listed I believe are very important so we are going to go into further detail on each one so you can see the benefits of having these attributes or developing them if you do not have them yet.Self-Control: Having self-control is so important because if you cannot control yourself how can you expect to control others. Having self-control is so important in becoming a strong leader. Think about it, have you ever had a dispute with a company and spoke with a Manager who did not have self-control? If you have, what did you think about them? What did you think about their leadership abilities? A leader understands that self-control is essential to becoming an effective leader and for maintaining a strong leadership.A Sense Of Justice: If you are lacking in your sense of justice it will be difficult for you to lead others. You will find it difficult to gain the respect of your followers and will ultimately lose them. Think about it for a moment. Who would you choose to follow if you were going to follow someone? Would it be the person you felt did not understand the value of justice or who lacked the sense of justice? Or would you choose someone who stood tall and stood up for what he/she felt was right? A leader understands people will follow you if you are worthy of being followed.A Pleasing Personality: A leader calls for respect. A pleasing personality comes with the title. If you are not likeable, if you are not respectable, you will not be an effective leader. A pleasing personality basically means someone who you would want to be around, someone who inspires you or who challenges you in a positive way. If you are considering whether or not you have the qualities of a leader you have to ask yourself if you have a pleasing personality. Do others enjoy being in your company? Do they value your opinion? Do they value you?Sympathy and Understanding: A good leader understands his followers. He takes the time to get to know them because he understands that a follower is a person with hopes and dreams and that they have entrusted him/her with those hopes and dreams. This leader must be in sympathy with his followers and want to see them become successful in their ventures and their journey. If you are not building people up you are not becoming the leader that we were meant to be.
