A tweet today pointed me to this YouTube video (April 2012),
‘Lead Like Jesus‘ – presented by Dr Ken Blanchard.
While Dr Blanchard, the global and spiritual leader of the Ken Blanchard Company, speaks from the point of view of leading within business the points he makes are equally applicable to we Christians who lead in Christian or secular educational settings.
Ken speaks of how Jesus took 12 unlikely men and transformed them from novices into master leaders. He also speaks of his own journey as a follower of Jesus and how he puts the principles found in the life of Jesus of servant leadership, into practice in his life and business.
Where did Jesus learn about leadership?
Who was the first servant leader?
Why did the Father make Jesus a carpenter?
What principles from the Saviour’s life will always hold us in good stead in our role as leaders?
The Video is 1 hour 19 minutes long but if you have the time it is well worth viewing and reflecting on.
A related 55 min. video is the one linked here: ‘Developing your leadership point of view‘, where Ken outlines more of the principles of Jesus’ servant leadership. Also well worth the time to view and reflect on.
