Enfermedades del liderazgo

...muy ad hoc a las reflexiones dentro de la Consulta de la FTL en estos días...

Les dejo con una reflexión sobre el liderazgo (próximamente lo traduciré al español).

I am a troubled and diseased leader when I:

  • declare, "I have special rights that are required to do my job."
  • harbor an inflated sense of self-importance and begin to thrive on being "on top."
  • lose my feel for subordinates.
  • lose my awareness of personal weakness and limitations.
  • get addicted to privileges and become possessive of them.
  • suffer a severe case of "never-being-wrong" and grow deaf to criticism, correction and rebuke.
  • like isolation from subordinates and then make it permanent.
  • think I have the right to dump all the distasteful parts of the job on other people.
  • make privacy a comfortable, important and safe personal possession.

I would not want to work for this person!

Jesus offers us a very different model of leadership as one who:
"...let go of everything he had a right to, emptied himself and became obedient to the point of death. Therefore, God also highly exalted him and gave him a name that is above every name. Therefore my beloved... work out your salvation with fear and trembling; for it is God who is at work in you, enabling you both to will and to work for his pleasure."
(Paul in Philippians 2:5-8, 12-13)

Thank you, Lord, for offering a different model of leadership and equipping us for the possibility of being servant leaders. Help me name, repent and abandon the temptations to misuse leadership opportunities for myself. Guide me in working for troubled leaders who carry these diseases.
