Biblical Leadership is Transformational
When we think about transformational leadership, we often look to the corporations to get inspiration. However, the best kind of transformational leadership is about changing people, not organizations. The greatest transformational leader is found in the Bible: Jesus is the best model for transformational leadership because under his leadership, twelve ordinary men because extraordinary apostles of a movement that is sweeping around the world and claiming the allegiance of 1 out of every 3 human beings alive on earth today. Unlike transformational leadership found in corporations where the people in the corporations remain largely unchanged, transformational leadership in the Bible modeled after Jesus produces changed lives who in turn are able to transform the corporations and communities where they live. This is truly transformational leadership!
