How do your followers perceive your leadership?

I give credit to Pastor Ron Edmondson for the germ idea for this blog

“How are you viewed by your followers?” 

Ron's Web site

Perception is stronger than truth.

You are only a leader if you have followers and people choose, or don’t choose, to follow you based on how they perceive you. 

People will generally follow you based on who you are (character) and where you are going (vision).

Your long term success may depend more on how you’re perceived as opposed to what you do.

  • Do they perceive you as a leader who empowers or controls?
  • Do they perceive you as a leader who welcomes new ideas or kills new ideas?
  • Do they perceive you more as a champion of the status quo or of change?
  • Do they perceive you as a leader who says “I” most of the time or “we” most of the time
  • Do they perceive you as a leader who always has to be right or one who takes responsibility for sin and poor decisions?
  • Do they perceive you as a leader who is a promise-keeper or a promise-breaker?
  • Do they perceive you as a leader who is full of the Holy Spirit or full of yourself?

So, leader, how are you doing?
