Jesus the Game Changer: Leadership

Despite being the most influential figure in human history, Jesus did not follow the conventional patterns of leadership of His time. He gathered only a small group of followers in His lifetime and died a humiliating death at the hands of the Roman authorities. His call for His followers to serve one another as servant leaders is one of the most powerful and enduring ideas from all of His example and teaching.

“The turning point in history, in terms of this motif of the humble leader, is the crucifixion of Jesus, where the Christians spotted that to be truly great means to lower yourself for the sake of another.”
