Leadership Illustrations

Here we have compiled a collection of Biblical and Christian illustrations on the topic of leadership.

Difference Between Dictators and Facilitators

To give staff the support they need to succeed, a wise leader facilitates and works with the team. He doesn’t dictate or demand success. Here are some other differences between facilitators and dictators:

  • Dictators hoard decisions; Facilitators push decisions down the line
  • Dictators make decisions alone or restrict them; Facilitators involve others as much as possible in key to an elite group decisions and give them space to make those decisions
  • Dictators  view truth and wisdom as their domain; Facilitators view truth and wisdom as accessible to since they are the leaders everyone in the organization
  • Dictators surprise workers with edicts from above; Facilitators let those responsible decide how the jobs will be done
  • Dictators guard their own interests;  Facilitators serve everyone’s interests by developing people
  • Dictators take for themselves;  Facilitators give to the organization

Disturb Us Lord

Disturb us, O Lord, when we are too well pleased with ourselves; When our dreams come true only because we have dreamed too little; When we arrive safely only because we sailed too close to the shore; When with the abundance of things we are losing our thirst for more of God; When in loving time, we have ceased to dream of eternity; When in our desire to build on this earth We have lost our vision of a new heaven.
