Do leaders think from a primal perspective? Before we drift into the early stages of evolutionary development, primal carries the impetus of something that is essential or foundational.
Nothing could more essential than spiritual leadership. Nothing could be more foundational to eternity than spiritual leadership.
How does the idea of primal apply to the surroundings of leadership?
Primal comes from a Latin word meaning “first.” The idea relates to the beginnings, first things, primary, essential, and foundational elements of all that is connected to life intellectually, physically, emotionally, and physically.
When we think about leadership, the need is evident to understand the primary––first elements that must be in place for the success of leading.
These elements are the building blocks of all leaders and include integrity, honesty, strong work ethic, passion, confidence in God, discipline, and balance.
There will always be additional elements to include, but these are the “primal” of leadership.
Using these as a foundation, leaders can build strength and character that provides hope for everyone who follows.
