Daily Devotion: Basic Rules of Leadership

Bible Reading: Romans 16:1-16

Key Verse: Verse 1 – "I commend unto you Phebe our sister, which is a servant of the church which is at Cenchrea:"

Key Words: I commend unto you Phebe

Paul realized the importance of others and wasn’t afraid to give them the attention and credit due them. Paul also had a love for those under him.

A research organization polled five hundred executives, asking them what traits they thought were most important in dealing with others. From the information received, five basic “rules” were formulated. They are:
  1. Always give your people the credit that is rightfully theirs. To do otherwise is both morally and ethically dishonest.
  2. Be courteous. Have genuine consideration for other people’s feelings, wishes, and situations.
  3. Never tamper with the truth. Never rationalize. What you might like to believe is not necessarily the truth.
  4. Be concise in your writing and talking, especially when giving instructions to others.
  5. Be generous. Remember that it is the productivity of others that makes possible your executive position.
  6. Not bad advice for all of us, but especially for leaders.

What to do:
✞ Do unto others as you would have them do unto you.
