“4 Principles for Using Your Leadership Power” – Randy Conley

It is a beautiful afternoon!Blue Skies - Lauren MAR 2014

I came across this article today on the Leading With Trust blog by Randy Conley of the Ken Blanchard Companies.

Excellent article about an issue that I have come to see as a pervasive issue within most organizations and distressingly so within churches and nonprofits – the misuse of leadership power.

Randy lists four principles that you need to be cognizant of if you are in any type of leadership position. I especially think that principle number four is vitally important to remember.

Listed below are the four principles. Please read Randy’s article as he unpacks them in a powerful way.

1. The best use of power is in service to others.

2. Followership is just as important, if not more so, than leadership.

3. The ego craves power.

4. Power is held in trust.

Don’t miss taking a look at his article – it is important from my point of view.

“Power tends to corrupt, and absolute power corrupts absolutely.
Great men are almost always bad men.”
