The Role Of Faith In Maintaining A Positive Leadership Mindset

While Christian leaders still express negativity in their leadership, faith-based leaders tend to have a more positive leadership mindset than those who don’t express belief in a higher power. This doesn’t mean Christian leaders don’t struggle with negative thoughts. However, when they do, they can flip it to a positive mindset more easily than someone who lacks belief.

Faith has been a crucial component in my leadership. From the leaders I interact with to the reasons I lead, faith is central to it all.

It’s also one of the reasons I keep a positive mindset. I want you to be able to maintain a positive leadership mindset as well.

In this article, we will look at the role of faith in maintaining a positive leadership mindset.

Choose To Serve

The ethos behind leadership has changed drastically in the last 10-15 years. We’ve seen leadership become more self-centered and me-driven.

What Went Wrong With Leadership

Growing up, my dad was loyal to the company he worked for. He was willing to put his blood, sweat, and tears into the business.

Why? Because they had his back. He also had theirs.

There’s was a sense of trust between the worker and the employer. Now, this trust has dissipated. Maybe, it’s gone altogether.

Employees now live in constant fear of their jobs. They watch owners buy newer, more expensive vehicles. All the while, they’re fed the line that the organization no longer has money for raises, bonuses, or any other perks employees used to receive.
