12 killers of good leadership

  • Ungratefulness - Good leaders value people, knowing they cannot attain success without others.
  • Favouritism - Good leaders don’t have favorites on the team. They reward for results not partiality.
  • Laziness – good leaders work hard; in fact, a leader should be willing to be the hardest worker on the team.

  • Defensiveness – Good leaders aren’t afraid to be challenged, they don’t wear their feelings on their shoulders.
  • Revenge – A successful leader must be forgiving, knowing that “fighting back” only comes back to harm them and the team.
  • Fearfulness – The good leader remains committed when no one else is and must take risks no one else would dare.
  • Small-mindedness – Good leaders think bigger than the present time. They dream really big!
  • Rigidity - For most issues, the leader must be open to change, although a leader must be rigid about certain things such as values and vision.
  • Unresponsiveness – Good leaders don’t lead from behind closed doors. They are responsive to the needs and desires of those they attempt to lead.
  • Leadership is an act of service. It requires selflessness.
  • The characteristics of leaders stem directly from the greatest of leaders:


The fear of God is at the foundation of every correct leadership.

The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom, and the knowledge of the Holy one is understanding. (Prov. 9:10).
