Chapter 1: How to Think Like a Leader

Key Points:

  • Leadership is serving. Therefore, to think like a leader means to think like a servant.
  • The best leaders lead with the heart of a servant. That’s how Jesus led and that’s how He expects us to lead.
  • When we reduce leadership to position, glory, and especially authority, we usually end up with a lot of indignant and angry people who argue and fight for their place in the pecking order.
  • Serving and saving sinful humanity was an end in itself—not a means to leadership and greatness. For Jesus, leading and influencing was a means to serve.

Discussion Questions:

  • Do you see serving as a means to leadership, or do you see leadership as a means to serving? What is the difference? Why does it matter?
  • Describe a leader you work with who exemplifies servant leadership.
  • Why do you want to be a leader? What motivates your desire to lead others?
