Leadership Lessons Daily: Day 311

Scripture Passage: Matthew 7:16-20
The Organisation is Only as Good as its Leader
Jesus said to His disciples, “Ye shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles? Even so every good tree bringeth forth good fruit; but a corrupt tree bringeth forth evil fruit. A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit, neither can a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit…Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them.” A good leader produces a good organisation and a bad organisation is the product of a bad leader.
The lesson here is this; the organisation is only as good as its leader. You can always tell how a leader is doing by paying attention to his followers. The people are a reflection of their leader. Every leader deposits something of himself in his followers. If the organisation is in trouble, the problem always lies with the leader. No organisation will ever outperform the one at the helm of affairs.
Prayer: Father, help me to be better that those I lead may be better.
