Balancing leadership and humility — and Keeping Jesus first

When Christian professionals “talk more of leadership strategies and career plans than, say, love, humility or excellence,” they are forgetting an integral element of faith, according to Jo Kadlecek, journalist-in-residence at Gordon College. Being a leader in the Christian community means being a follower of Christ; it means giving up, letting go, and rediscovering “the secrets to contented lives” rather than embodying “the habits of effective leaders.” Churches need leaders who are willing to “serve, not climb; to reach downward, not upward.” In her article, published by Faith & Leadership, an online magazine from Leadership Education at Duke Divinity School, Kadlecek says pastors, first and foremost, need to pay attention to what Christ would have them do
