7 Leadership Skills Every Pastor Needs

6. Personal Leadership

How you manage your life affects your church and your leadership. Self-leadership can make or break a leader.

Manage yourself in these areas:
relationships, seasons of ministry and life

7. Improving Communication.

No one is perfect in this area. We all have to improve—continually.

What are you saying with your words?

What are you saying with your attitude?

What did you intend to say?

What are people hearing?

Communication is always a work in progress. Sometimes, listening is more important than talking.
