As a leader, I often read the Bible through a leadership lens. Likewise, some of my best principles of leadership have been inspired by Jesus.
There are many leaders I admire who have influenced my own leadership. I love a good leadership book and have read most of the primary authors of them – too many to have a favorite.
There are leaders from my personal life such as a former pastor, a former boss, a high school principal and leaders in my own community who have influenced me as I have watched their leadership.
I also love to learn from a great athletic coach. There have been teams I have chosen to support because of the coach that leads them.
Yet, the principles, which I admire most are found in the leadership style of Jesus. Jesus’ leadership is still impacting culture today.
