Last week, I encouraged you to do your Spiritual Gifts and 5-Voices Leadership assessments. Building off of what you learned should take your leadership influence to a new level. The flip side of understanding your Leadership “Voice,” is also understand that you have “voice weapon system!” That weapon system describes what it feels like to be on the other side of you. Every weapon system can be used for positive or negative influence, therefore, our goal as servant leaders should be to learn the various weapons and understand how we tend to employ them in a given situation, so that we can use them for good rather than harm.
1 John 1:8-10 (NIV)
8 If we claim to be without sin, we deceive ourselves and the truth is not in us. 9 If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness. 10 If we claim we have not sinned, we make him out to be a liar and his word is not in us.
So, What… for This Week?
At the end of the day, it’s important to remember that all voices and weapon systems have both an immature and mature side to them. What we care about at Ignite Purpose is helping people become mature in their voices and weapon systems so that they can know themselves to lead themselves. If we can help them do that, then we can help them become the best leader they can be, rich in positive influence and liberating leadership in all areas of their lives.
