Leadership is not what you build but rather who you build.
Where are the leaders? Perhaps the most significant problem in the world today is the absence of true biblical leadership. The heart of a leader is found in the person who cares about investing in the lives of others over their own personal gain. Great leadership is a gift that, when given, influences every area of our lives. While leadership doesn’t always come naturally, everyone has the ability to become a leader worth following.
This was created for you.
