Whether you lead a business, a church, or a family, the wisest approach is to pattern your leadership after people who know how to lead well. And who better demonstrated leadership after than Jesus Christ himself?
Willie Robertson of A&E’s Duck Dynasty is with us on our Focus on the Family Broadcast “Leading Others by Following Jesus,” sharing an inspiring message on how to emulate the leadership principles that Jesus modeled while He was on Earth.
I appreciate the leadership Willie displays in his own family (he’s the father of six), the CEO of Duck Commander, and as a Christian man proclaiming the Lord in the secular media. Willie’s insights have been valuable to my own leadership role here at Focus on the Family.
Jesus’ leadership approach was something of a paradox because so much of His life was a paradox. Jesus was in this world but not of the world. He often spoke truth that stood in stark contrast to what the world believes. He taught that before you can lead well, you must learn to follow well (Philippians 2:5-8).
