TOPIC: Essential Ingredients for Effective Leadership III
FIRE SCRIPTURE: Exodus 3:16-22
MEMORY VERSE: Exodus 7:6
MOTIVATIONAL QUOTE: Communication to a relationship is what oxygen is to life. Without it, it dies.
PROPHETIC WORD FOR TODAY: The Lord will make you an effective communicator and a successful leader, in the name of Jesus.
BIBLE IN ONE YEAR: Joel 2 – 3; Hebrew 5 – 6
The second important ingredient of leadership is communication. Once a vision has been received from God, it is of extreme importance that it be properly communicated. It is therefore necessary that every leader learns the art of communication and effectively use it.
Effective communication is essential in starting, ciling and succeeding in marriage relationships, family relationship, team relationships, church relationships, an army, a factory, a school, in flying an aircraft and in running a nation. Any of these relationships will breakdown or malfunction if communication breaks down. Through effective communication, a leader will help members of his team to clearly understand specific task given to them and be able to complete it.
To achieve this, the leader must
(1) Be sure about what he wants to communicate
(2) Be familiar with the people he is to communicate
(3) Gain their full attention by focussing on the things that interest them.
(4) Keep the message as simple as possible.
(5) Encourage them to write down or record the message so they can revise it again and again.
(6) Ask for feedback and questions from them. This will help to reinforce clarity.
(7) Encourage them to apply the communication.
This will enable them to understand and remember it
Beloved, great Bible leaders like Joseph, Moses, David, Nehemiah and the apostles succeeded simply because they were effective communicators of God’s vision. With clarity. Joseph told Pharaoh and the whole of Egypt what Jehovah wanted them to do during the seven years of plenty and seven years of scarcity.
They obeyed and survived the global season of intense famine. Similarly. Moses communicated the vision and mandate of Jehovah to his people, their obedience led to their dramatic and miraculous deliverance. Joshua successfully led the Israelites to the Promised Land because he effectively communicated God’s vision and strategies to them. After his encounter with the Captain of the Lord’s hosts, Joshua shared the strategies for their victory with the priests and other Israelites. They implemented the strategy and the walls of Jericho fell down flat!
Beloved, if you want to be a quintessential leader in the spiritual and secular areas of life, you must be able to effectively communicate the vision God has given you to other people.

I come to You, Lord Jesus. I admit that I am a sinner, and I want to be right with You. I ask You to forgive me of all my sins. Wash me away from all unrighteousness and cleanse me clean Today. The Bible says if I confess with my mouth that “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in my heart that God raised me.
