Blessings for Our Leaders – Wednesday Word

By Kevin Wayne Johnson | Authors , Books , Christian Living , Christianity , Devotions , Interview , John Maxwell , Leadership , Podcasts , Religion , Spirituality , Uncategorized

Our leaders are BLESSED!! Some know this truth…others have no clue. Leadership is a spiritual gift from God (Romans 12:8), meaning that God has equipped His leaders for the work that is being accomplished. As a blessed leader, we have a higher responsibility to lead in an excellent manner. That is, lead with enthusiasm, zeal, motivation and no personal motives.

Lead your people as if your life depended on it…in essence it does! Be a positive example at all times and reveal God’s love every step along the way. This will instill to others the blessings that we enjoy, each and everyday!

Lead by Example – Wednesday Word

By Kevin Wayne Johnson | Authors , Books , Christian Living , Christianity , Devotions , Interview , John Maxwell , Leadership , Podcasts , Religion , Spirituality , Uncategorized

You’ve heard the phrase – “Lead, follow or get out of the way.” Yes, while true, let’s rethink this.

Would you follow yourself? If so, keep up with the integrity, ethics, character and mannerisms that launched you toward leadership. If not, what would you change?

Here is one major suggestion: Read a leadership book once per month. It will change your thinking and behaviors so that others will be inclined to follow you. One change can create significant results.

Try it…lead by example.

Leading at Your Best – Wednesday Word

By Kevin Wayne Johnson | Authors , Books , Christian Living , Christianity , Devotions , Interview , John Maxwell , Leadership , Podcasts , Religion , Spirituality , Uncategorized

Being and becoming a great leader requires your focus, dedication, persistence, patience and grit. I know – as a pastor as well as mid-level and senior-level in the federal government ranks for over 20 of my 34 year career, I’ve seen all types of personalities and abilities under my care as a supervisor, manager and leader.

I order to successfully maneuver through the challenges of leading others, here is what it takes:

Focus – requires you to laser in on the people that you are leading. Get to know them and their families

Dedication – be completely dedicated to their cause and what makes them tick. They will appreciate it when they feel valued

Persistence – stick with it. Do not give up on your people even when they choose to give up on themselves. Find a way to have them to believe in themselves

Patience – it takes a while to break through the hard shells of some of your people. That’s okay! Keep pressin’…

Grit – be “thick-skinned” as you work hard to lead you people. It takes a tough persona as you work through many obstacles, but you will persevere as good leaders always do.

Leading at you best requires all of the above. Get to it!!

Reach A Million – Wednesday Word

By Kevin Wayne Johnson | Authors , Books , Christian Living , Christianity , Devotions , Interview , John Maxwell , Leadership , Podcasts , Religion , Spirituality , Uncategorized

Today is my 1st day of post-retirement following 34 years of total federal service combined with my private industry experience as well. Following a weekend of wonderful celebrations, I now embark on chapter two in this beautiful life – leadership development training for the current and next generation of leaders. To this end, I eagerly anticipate signing a multiple book contract with a major publisher in the coming days (this month) as an extension to all of the training, coaching and mentoring that will take place around the globe.

On this post-retirement adventure, I ask you to please join me in prayer as I solicit 10,000 family and friends to reach 100 each so that, ultimately, we reach 1 million readers. It is my hope that 1 million-plus people around the world have a thirst and hunger to be better leaders and manager with the intent to make this world a better place. Would you join me in this simple prayer?:

“Heavenly Father, in the spirit of educating and equipping a new generation of excellent leaders around the globe, I pray that 100 people that You designate will read and apply the contents in the “Leadership – With A Servant’s Heart” book series, authored by Kevin Wayne Johnson. I pray that, as a direct result, the difference will be heartfelt by these readers as well as the recipients of the practical and life-changing leadership principles and strategies that are read. Thank you for answered prayers. In Jesus Name – Amen.”

Repeat this prayer just once per week and collectively we will reach the next generation of leaders – together!!
