Faith and Leadership (part 2)

After the questions raised in part 1, here is some more from Banks and Ledbetter’s bookReviewing Leadership:

Asking what actions a faithful leader should take if they are to lead in ways that are consistent with their faith, they suggest that faith-imprinted leadership generally carries a number of characteristics. They suggest eight, including these four:

  • Reflection – ‘this discipline leads to spiritual depth, greater self-knowledge, and organisational insight.’
  • Covenant building – leaders building alliances and creating partnerships;
  • Followership – ‘the faithful leader is a servant first, and from that emerges the desire to lead.’
  • Perpetual learning and development – ‘Leadership is never mastered; it requires constant learning and development.’
