Be kindly affectionate to one another with brotherly love, in honor giving preference to one another; not lagging in diligence, fervent in spirit, serving the Lord. ~Romans 12:10-11

Many leaders commit the error of separating leadership from relationships. This happens when people step into leadership positions and assume that everyone will follow them because of their position. Some leaders wrongly believe that their knowledge alone qualifies them to lead others. People don’t care how much you know until they know how much you care. We cannot separate leadership from relationships. Leaders help themselves by developing good relational skills. Paul instructs us how to lead through relationships:

  • Avoid hypocrisy.
  • Be loyal to colleagues.
  • Give preference to others.
  • Be hospitable.
  • Return good for evil.
  • Identify with others.
  • Be open-minded toward others.
  • Treat everyone with respect.
  • Do everything possible to keep peace.
  • Remove revenge from your life.
