Patrick Lencioni #GLS19 said “there are only two types of leaders: SERVANT LEADERS and those who want something REWARD SEEKING LEADERS.”
Which one are you? Do you offer yourself for the betterment of others? Do you give beyond your title, your role and your Nolen benefit? Do you do the work which seems “beneath you?” If so, you are likely a servant leader.
If you want leadership roles in your life because of the “fun”’of the notoriety, the power and authority you wish to exercise over others and the fat paycheck... you might be a reward seeking leader.
I encourage you to get Patrick’s book and do more homework on the issue. But let me suffice it to say this: Leadership requires a right heart, right motives and right thinking about others. There are loads of selfish people in this world with selfish motives. There are also loads of people with a right heart who want to help others. The latter will rise to the top in influence with our without the title of LEADER on their name plate or resume.
Be that kind of person.
