10 Characteristics of God Leadership

One of my Top Posts of 2010 was a post entitled 10 Characteristics of Good Leadership. As I was typing it into the year-end review I “mistakenly” typed in the word “God” instead of the word “Good”. I decided to let this “mistake” become a post of it’s own. I’ve written before 10 Reasons I Admire the Leadership Principles of Jesus and 10 Tips to Doing Leadership the Jesus Way, but in this post, it would consider ways I should lead if I am leading in a God-inspired way.

Using my Evernote application, I quickly captured the first 10 characteristics that came to mind.  Basically I asked myself, if a person was leading the way God would inspire him or her, how would he or she lead? (I’m hoping you’ll add to my list.)

Here are 10 Characteristics of God Leadership:

  • Seeks God’s will before his or her own…
  • Humble…
  • Servant…
  • Walks by faith…
  • Patient…
  • Considers the interest of others better than his or herself…
  • Submits to authority…
  • Teachable…seeks wisdom from others…
  • Believes the impossible can happen…
  • Empowers others to do what he or she could do…

That’s a start…

What would you add to my list?
