Leadership quotes from Dr. Dave Williams:
- Bishops, pastors, family leaders and Christian businesspeople must understand the character qualities God expects in leadership, as a result and do their best to emulate these attributes, so others can understand what St. Paul calls, “the mystery of godliness.”
- Never—and I mean never—surrender your leadership to bellyaching complainers, whiners, rebels, or argumentative, antagonistic malcontents. Contentious people hurt churches, especially, when they are in some form of leadership. This is why St. Paul excluded them from the leadership roles when he said, “no strikers.”
- We never grow in an atmosphere of nitpicking and judgment but in an atmosphere of grace.
- An individual frozen in the status quo is not a pacesetting leader.
- Communication is one of the primary keys to being a pacesetting leader.
- The priceless, most valuable attribute of the pacesetting leader is honesty.
- An effective, pacesetting leader is one who delegates tasks to the right people.
- Pacesetting leaders keep things transparent, uncluttered, simple, and consistent.
- Pacesetting leaders have the capacity to create and impart vision to others
