Influence is not a choice, but what you do with your influence is. Many people waste their influence, never realizing their potential or becoming apathetic to the impact they could have. Many more spend their influence, devoting their energies to a comfortable life without having to sacrifice much. But few people invest their influence, maximizing their potential while selflessly serving others. There is an art and science to this investment of influence. Those who want to be investors are daily learners of both the art and the science. Do you want to invest your influence? If so, then it’s time to experiment.

051 Follow First

Develop Leadership Podcast

We are opening up a 5-episode conversation on the 5 Marks of a Healthy Leader. The first is: Follow First. Healthy leaders follow Jesus closely. 1 Corinthians 1:11 “And you should imitate me, just as I imitate Christ.” Healthy leaders must know how to submit to authority before exercising it. They have a “put me in coach” mentality and are eager to learn from their leaders. They ask questions and are a sponge to soak in information. They courageously follow orders and actively seek to be unified with their higher-ups. They are attentive and active listeners. They are eager to learn not just from their higher-ups, but also from their teammates and those they lead. They regularly ask questions when direction is not clear. However, they also believe and trust the authority above them even when they don’t have the full context of a given situation. Following first demonstrates behaviors that promote a culture of respect and trust. To unpack what it means to Follow First is Momentum Ministry Partners Executive Leader, Eric Miller
