What makes a good leader?

One thought on this one is honesty

People want honesty not holiness. Holiness is over rated, not as a spiritual concept but as a leadership characteristic. 

There has been a line of thought in the past that a leader can never appear weak or flawed that he has to stand out as an example of holiness. 

Now I know we can quote various verses on the subject. 

But a brief glimpse at any leadership in the bible reveals flawed weak leaders, in fact I am not sure how many senior leadership teams would have elected David to be on their team, or Moses! 

Murderers, cowards, adulterers.

Yes, honesty is the key of a good leader... with this skill you can do a lot of things. Personally, I'm not a leader, but I followed a leadership training and it's interesting how many things we can learn from these camps. In my opinion, every company should have a leader.
