“There is no doubt that Jesus of Nazareth has had more impact on our globe than any other human in history. So it is only natural that we would look to him for a model of leadership. Granted, he is relegated to a religious realm. Christians see him as ‘Son of God.’ Muslims as a holy prophet. Everyone else would likely at least see him as a great teacher. Yet he is so much more. He has much more to offer every leader who wants to master leadership.
He organized and initiated a grassroots movement that eventually spanned the globe. We might assume that he was a powerful communicator. Yet that was not the secret sauce of his success. Many believe the biblical accounts of his miraculous powers. Yet again, this was not what built the movement. He was able to attract followers with neither formal education or official power. Without a PR machine or an institutional organizational model, Jesus built a kingdom that was cross-cultural, multilingual, progressive, adaptive, and exponential. If that is something close to what you imagine for yourself, you might want to take a closer look at his leadership style.
Regardless of your perception of Jesus, if want to be an effective leader, his life is not one to ignore. He was a master leader whom many call the Master.” (p. 5)
“A common misconception of leadership is that it leads to freedom. It does not. It leads to obligation. If you are not aligned with a higher authority, you will make a poor leader. Even the fractional few who are at the very top of an organization, are NOT free from responsibility. Quite the contrary. They are under the heaviest weight of obligation to their constituents, shareholders, customers, and employees. Master leaders don’t avoid responsibility to others, they deliberately take on the mantel of service and suffering such leadership demands.” (p. 16)
