Understanding Leadership

Decision-making and leadership are nearly synonymous. Leader behaviors can help or hinder this process as internal guidance and corporate culture helps the decision maker formulate their options. This assignment is meant to distinguish the nuances and reflect on what these behaviors mean to the student in their leadership journey. INSTRUCTIONS After reading and understanding the types of leadership behaviors, evaluate some of them. Consider biblical principles that should shape​‌‍‍‍‌‍‍‌‍‌‌‍‍‍‌‍‌‌‌‍​ our behaviors. Then consider the additional effect of the organization and political influences on leadership decision-making process. Finally, apply at least 1 biblical passage that speaks to decision-making. Explain why you picked the passage and what it means to you.
