The following blog was written by a student that attended one of my Leadership Labs. The writing was in response to the question “How would you define leadership?”

Leadership to me is able to bring the people of our church body to a common goal. Leaders are the people who take action when an idea is brought up. Leaders also know how to use different people for different jobs, they know each team member’s strengths and weaknesses. Leaders are very important in all parts of life. Although God may not have given all of us the spiritual gift of leadership, we can still try to improve our leadership skills. God may have given you the spiritual gift of leadership. If you believe he did, try attending different conventions on leadership. These conventions will help you be ab better leader. One other thing about leadership is if you are the leader of a team and the team fails, it is not your team members fault; it is your fault. I hope you find this helpful.
