Becoming Great
By:Rick Boxx

While doing research on “Servant Leadership,” I stumbled across a quote credited to a seminary professor named, J. Carla Northcutt. She stated, “The goal of many leaders is to get people to think more highly of the leader. The goal of a great leader is to help people to think more highly of themselves.”

The Apostle Paul understood this principle. In 1 Corinthians 10:24 he wrote, “Nobody should seek his own good, but the good of others.”

It takes a strong person to be secure enough personally to help others advance their career. A true servant leader looks for opportunities to care for others and to encourage them in their journey.

If you desire to become a great leader, look for ways you can serve and exalt those around you.
