People Follow Leaders… When There’s A Leader To Follow

People follow leaders… when there is a need for a leader. If a ministry does not provide vision for growth, a destination to reach, a risk to take or a challenge to win, there is nothing for people to follow and hence no need for a leader.

Ron Edmundson described leaders as follows:

  • Leaders have a vision that includes other people…
  • Leaders are typically the ones who are willing to think bigger…
  • Leaders will usually take greater risks…
  • Leaders dream bigger than they can complete without others…
  • Leaders take people where they are afraid to go…
  • Leaders strategize plans they can never accomplish alone…
  • Leaders aren’t just talking about it…
  • Leaders are actually going somewhere…

If these things do not exist, there is no need for a leader. Some may stay with that leader, but not the ones who want to achieve something greater…. most will leave to find it.
