Everyday Christians are recreated to be leaders in our realms of influence.
As with every facet of our lives, God calls us to be good stewards of the resources He has given us. This stewardship not only includes tangible things like material items and finances, but also the intangible things like skills, relationships, and influence.
A big part of stewarding our influence is learning how to integrate our lives with leadership skills that increase our ability to bring the people and environments around us into a closer alignment with the Kingdom of God. Once we make the conscious decision to pursue stewardship of our leadership calling we suddenly realize there are endless opportunities to learn and to grow in our understanding of leadership.
With that in mind, the editors of Artios Magazine have complied some of their favorite leadership posts on everything from intimidation to strengths and weaknesses. As you scroll through, take time to ask how these insights can help you grow your influence and expand your leadership horizons. (Even in cases where the tweets and Instagram posts aren’t from Christian leaders, the leadership principles still apply.)
Here’s Some of Our Favorite #Leadership Posts:
The best part of leadership isn't building projects.
It's building into people.#Leadership

True #leadership is about giving those around you space to work, space to maneuver, and space to explore.
It’s this ‘space’ that helps grow organizational capacity while simultaneously building individual confidence.

Intimidated people might comply, but they don't bring their best.#leadership
