John Townsend

Last week, Grace hosted a luncheon with guest speaker John Townsend (author/co-author of several books, including Boundaries).  According to him, people want to follow those who…

 1. Are Competent; those who “know their stuff” and are capable of making change.

2. Have Connection; those who genuinely care and reach into others’ hearts.

3. Have Clarity; those who are honest, even when news is bad.

4. Buy Into the Vision; those who want something bigger than themselves.

5. Attract and Frustrate; those who attract talent and frustrate slackers.

6. Are Real; those who live in reality and make mistakes.

For more from Townsend, check out his new book, Leadership Beyond Reason.
