The Three (3) Most Essential Leadership Traits

By Jones The Advisor / March 10, 2022 / Comments Off on The Three (3) Most Essential Leadership Traits

I always ask my classes …

“How do you know if you are a Leader?” …

“Look over your shoulder and see if someone is Following You!” …


Now …

Think about The Leaders who convinced you to Follow Them …

Whether They were in an Organization or within your circle of Family & Friends …


What Traits did They ALL Possess? …

What did They ALL do to get you to Believe In and Follow Them? …



They all had the ability to …

Galvanize, Persuade, & Convince



Galvanize …

The ability to Galvanize is defined as possessing the talent to Excite Someone into ‘Taking Action’ …

After Listening to Them … 

Or …

Just Being Around Them …

You were CERTAIN …

That you were Ready To …

‘Spring Into Action!’ …

They Exuded an Undeniable Motivating Charisma …


Persuade …

The ability to Persuade is defined as possessing the talent to Prompt someone to ‘Spring Into Action’ …

They may have spoken in front of a Crowd …

They may have talked to you One on One …

However …

Following the Encounter …

You just wanted to ‘Go There!’ …

And you were ‘All In!’ …


Convince …

The ability to Convince is defined as possessing the talent to cause someone to firmly believe in the ‘Truth of the Matter’ …

This Conviction about the ‘Truth of the Matter’ …

Could have occurred after a One on One Encounter …

Or …

The Leader could have Interacted with you (all) on Multiple Occasions …

However …

As with the previous two Essential Leadership Traits …

‘You Just Knew!’ …

“… Ask Yourself …

… The Prologue to my book Enoch’s Journey: Seven Steps to ‘Was Not’ Says … 

… What’s past may indeed become prologue.

Which can lead you to a good, or a bad place, 

depending on where your past is located, 

in the present … …


… A Prologue is the separate section at the beginning of a Book … 

… However … Prologue Is Also Defined As … an event or action that leads to another event or situation …  

… But Your Past Has No Inherent Power … Per This Definition … To ‘DEFINITIVELY LEAD You Anywhere’ … 


..… You Have The Power to Decide …

… Whether Or Not The Things That Happened in your Past … 

… Are Useful relative to your Decision Making Process … 

… In The Present …

… Or If It Could  Relate To Your Future … 



..… Just Remember … 

… Y’all Broke Up For A REASON! … And It Was A Good Reason! … 

… And You Left For A REASON! … And It Was A Good Reason! …

Advancing On All Fronts

Continue to Advance on ALL Fronts. 

Continue to explore and exploit every opportunity that God makes available to you.

However, always keep in mind that there is only one of those fronts, paths, and opportunities that leads to the True Purpose that God has laid out for your life. 

So always Seek His Perfect Will, while you are Pressing and Pursuing that Promised Land.



I keep pursuing the goal in order to win the prize offered by God’s upward calling in (Christ Jesus).

… That When Relationships End … Generally in Argument & Acrimony … Where People Stop Speaking for a Short Time … Or Forever! …


… Whether They Are …

… Marriage Relationships … Dating Relationships … Familial Relationships … Or Friendships …


… There is One Small Commonality … 

… One Or Both People CHOSE … 

…To Never Fully or Even Partially … 

… Submit Their Imperfect Human Will … 


… (Human Will = Feelings, Fears, & Fleshly Desires) …


… Rather Saying … 

… As MJB Said in Song … 

… ‘Take Me As I Am … OR Have Nothing At All’ …


… And That Eventually ENDS The Relationship … 


… Why Not Just …

… Submit Your Imperfect Human Will … 

… To God’s Perfect Will? …

… To Both of You …


… The Choice to Listen & Submit … 

… Is Ours …
