3 Leadership Qualities to look for in a Candidate – Beyond Small Talk

There are many great leaders throughout history, but there’s only one person who has set the standards and embodied the true meaning of leadership.

Jesus made Himself of no reputation and took upon Him the form of a servant (Phil 2:7). He came to earth not to be served but to serve mankind and gave His life as a ransom for many (Matt 20:28).

Scroll down to see His life as a servant leader to help you decide the right qualities to look for in a candidate, as discussed by Beyond Small Talk hosts Peter Kairuz, Jericho Arceo, and Paul Herrera.

  1. A true leader knows how to sacrifice.

Even if Jesus knew He was God (Phil 2:6-7), He chose to put Himself down to connect with His people and become a humble servant. A leader should be someone who will sacrifice, serve, and go the extra mile for his or her constituents.

  1. A true leader teaches and models how to lead.

He or she does not only instruct or dictate what they should do but models it.

“Jesus modeled servant leadership by serving others through the washing of His disciples’ feet and dying on the cross,” Paul Herrera explained.

  1. A true leader allows his or her followers to do things on their own.

Jesus allowed His disciples to minister on their own and be able to apply what they have learned from Him.
