Want To Be A Great Leader? Here Are 3 Traits You Should Have – Beyond Small Talk 

John C. Maxwell, a leadership expert and #1 New York Times bestselling author, said, “A leader is one who knows the way, goes the way, and shows the way.” 

Do you agree?  

Jesus, the greatest leader who ever lived on earth, faithfully and sacrificially demonstrated all of that. Until now, many years later, His teachings are still making a transformative impact to billions of lives all over the world.  

So, iyou aspire to be a great leader in your area of influence, follow how Jesus did it 

Here are the leadership traits taken from the life of Jesus as shared by Beyond Small Talk hosts Peter Kairuz, Jericho Arceo, and Paul Herrera: 


1. Be motivated by love. 

Love was Jesus’ greatest motivation when He led people. When He walked on earth, He did not stop pouring His love out even to those people He knew would malign Him. He was consistent in showing His love, in words and deeds, every day and to everyone regardless of who they are.  


2. Aim to leave a good legacy. 

Jesus left a great legacy that withstood time. Even after 2,000 years, incredible number of people are still following HimWhy? Because He left a legacy of grace, mercy, forgiveness, hope and unconditional love.  

What kind of legacy would you like to leave behind?  


3. Treat people with compassion. 

Be a leader who knows how to empathize, consider the needs of others better than himself/herself, and add value to people just like what Jesus modeled.  

Ephesians 4:32 NIV says, Be kind and compassionate to one another, forgiving each other, just as in Christ God forgave you. 

Being a leader may be tough job, but you can only accomplish these things with and through Jesus (Philippians 4:13) 

He will give you the grace and favor to fulfill your call to leadership as long as yohumble yourself before Him (James 4:6). He will empower you to run the race that is set before you with endurance (Hebrews 12:1).
