Leadership 2013

The Rev. Nicky Gumbel @nickygumbel, Vicar of Holy Trinity Brompton (the largest Anglican church in the UK), tweeted his take on leadership as his opening to 2013. This is a pin-the-on-the-wall-and-look-at-it-every-morning checklist.

Ancient scripture wisdom repackaged for the modern age. The Rev. Nicky is known internationally for developing the Alpha Course – the most popular introduction to Christianity course in the world. He has been described as a natural leader – confident but self-effacing holiness.

New areas of leadership study – Servant Leadership and Authentic Leadership – emphasise a deep sense of morality in the leader, and a concern for the welfare of others that is greater than the desire to self promote. The leader is there to enable others to flourish.

Thanks to Chris Saunders, MBA Director at the Lancaster University Management School, for sending.
