Why Do Leaders Refuse To Admit They Are Wrong?

Four Reasons…

#1 – Pride – So many churches and ministries have been derailed because the leader KNEW he was wrong but refused to admit it.  It wasn’t a problem with information but rather a problem with integrity!

#2 – Fear – Some leaders feel if they admit they are wrong that they will lose the respect of the people who follow them…when the opposite is true, people love it when a leader admits the obvious…even if it makes them “look bad.”

#3 – Ignorance – They don’t know that they’re wrong, they’re clueless…and if this is the case then they have most likely surrounded themselves with people who are either too insecure to speak truth to them…or too dumb to see the obvious!

#4 – Apathy – They know change needs to take place, they see the writing on the wall; however, making changes would disrupt their way (and style) of living…they care WAY more about themselves and their comfort than they do the people they lead.
