Our attitude and approach to leadership influences the type of work accomplished.
Charles Schwab once said, “I have yet to find a man, however exalted his station, who did not do better work and put forth greater effort under a spirit of approval than under a spirit of criticism.”
If leadership is dictatorial, negative, and critical there are consistent challenges to reaching goals.
Our leadership excels with a spirit of positive approval and affirmation. The world has plenty of critics. It seems natural to offer criticism, even when praise is necessary.
God intended the church to be a refuge. If we want success in our leadership, the thought here is worth considering.
