Do you notice any of these seven signs of a toxic leader in your life?
- They rarely demonstrate the fruit of the Spirit.
- They seek a minimalist structure of accountability.
- They expect behavior of others they don't expect of themselves.
- They see almost everyone else as inferior to themselves.
- They show favoritism.
- They do not allow for pushback or disagreement and surround themselves with sycophants.
- They are self-absorbed.
Some highlights from today's Rainer Report:
- Toxic leaders keep great things from happening in a church.
- Toxic leaders often avoid systems of accountability.
- Strong leaders are not only surrounded by those who tell them what they want to hear.
- Toxic leaders focus on three people: me, myself and I.
