Repost: Points of Leadership Series (4)
Recently Kevin Price, Host of the nationally syndicated Price of Business Show, welcomed Dr. Feyi Obamehinti to provide another commentary in a series.
“Words which do not give the light of Christ increase the darkness” – Mother Teresa
Points of Leadership is all about equipping leaders in maximizing their leadership for the people they lead.
Currency is a standardization of money in any form, it is used or circulated as a medium of exchange. Currency of leadership is “words.” Though free, words make an impact, be that be negative or positive. Proverbs 18:21 is a blueprint in the benefit of words and currency of leadership. It states, “Death and life are in the power of the tongue, and those who love it will eat its fruit.” Check out these currency of leadership from some great servant leaders of our time.
Rev. Billy Graham,”When wealth is lost, nothing is lost. When health is lost, something is lost. When character is lost, all is lost.” These words were spoken during one of his many crusades.
Dr. Martin Luther King, “I have a dream.” These words were part of the speech he gave in Washington in 1963.
Dr. Jack Swigert, “Houston we have a problem.” These words were part of the radio communication between Apollo 13 astronauts and Jack Swigert spoke the words.
The currency of leadership hinges on three things: (1). What we say: are our words bringing life to others? To a community, church or company? Or are our words bringing death to others? (2). How we say it: leaders understand that how we say something is as important as to what is said, even more importantly. (3). Why we say it: the motives of our words are equally important as to how the words are said and what is said. Be sure and listen to the interview for the entirety of this post.
