Word of the Week: Leader

This week's word is Leadership.  I love this quote from General George Washington to his commanders: “A leader must look and act the part if he is going to have the success needed for a proper command.”

George Washington was a great leader, so much so that he was a general and our only president to be elected unanimously.  He understood that in order to be an effective leader, you need to look and act the part.  In other words, a leader must communicate that he is worth following.

A leader is expected to inspire to command his troops or a nation.  This cannot be accomplished without the Language of Leadership.  It's more than weilding power or even using the right words. It's an entire package and, if you don't have it, you will not be given a position of leadership and you cannot be effective without it.

The Bible tells us what a good and true leader is and Say What You Mean: The Language of Leaderships shows you how to accomplish this in today's world.

    Very true, Carla. The Bible tells us what a true leader is and SWM The Language of Leadership shares those ideals and how to get there.

    Leadership is something sorely lacking in this country and, most times, it’s strictly by position, not by someone who is a true leader.
