10 Commandments of Effective Leadership by T.D. Jakes

  1. 1. T. D. JAKES’ 10 COMMANDMENTS OF EFFECTIVE LEADERSHIP Saji Ijiyemi Author | Speaker | Coach
  2. 2. The 10 Commandments of Effective Leadership These Commandments are from T. D. Jakes’ 2013 Pastors and Leaders Conference. Learn them and live by them if you want to be an effective leader. 2
  3. 3. #1— Don’t Lead Beyond Your Own Exposure You need to be exposed beyond the people you lead or you forfeit your right to lead them. You need to look out from where you are because you will not lead any further than your own exposure. 3
  4. 4. #2 — Don’t Choose Your Leadership Team Like You Choose Your Friends You bring people on the team for function, not for friendship. If a team member decides to be your friend, that is wonderful thing but remember that effective leaders choose function over friendship. 4
  5. 5. #3 — Don’t Reward Nepotism Reward people for their performance, not for their personality. When you reward only your relatives and friends, you teach people that in order to be promoted around you, they have to be a kiss up to you. 5
  6. 6. #4 — Don’t Avoid Confrontation People expect you to be nice, but you can destroy your potential to lead effectively if, at the expense of being liked, you won’t confront what needs to be confronted. 6
  7. 7. #5 — Don’t Over-promise and Under-deliver Do people get what you advertised when they get you or is your advertisement better than your reality? If you can’t bring your reality up, then bring your advertisement down. 7
  8. 8. #6 — Do Clearly Articulate Expectations When you speak an expectation, you know what you meant but that doesn’t mean they heard what you said. Have people say back what they heard to make sure you are both on the same page. 8
  9. 9. #7 — Don’t Mistake Regimentation for Revelation When people always know what to expect when they come to your organization, you have a regiment. People will not follow something that does not move no matter how much they love it! 9
  10. 10. #8 — Don’t Lead Forward Without Leadership Updates When you get new information, find a way to update your people. If you are not sending out updates, you are building the mentality of your people around where you’ve been instead of where you want to be. 10
  11. 11. #9 — Don’t Lead Without Listening Even if you don’t like what somebody says, give them the chance to say it anyway. People will not follow if they cannot be heard. Listening does not make you weak, it makes you wise. Let them say! 11
  12. 12. #10 — Do Cross-pollinate If you train your ears to only respond to one tune, you won’t be able to learn from other leaders outside of your domain. You might not agree with everybody but you can learn something from everybody. 12
