LEADER-SHIP; To embrace flexibility, sensitivity, humility and The Joy!

Not too long ago, I enjoyed the privilege of completion a Post-Graduate Course on "Rare Leader".  We as students focus, surmised, and re-learned while engaging in interactive discussions, that healthy teams begin with healthy leaders.
The aforementioned traits and attributes in the title of this blog is key to the development of 'emotional intelligence', which lends itself to the heart of the quality of dynamic emotional maturity. And I hasten to add, it is also fundamental ingredients of the basis for benefits of it's 'Core Values.

As one's strives to rise to the level of a Rare Leader it prepares and equips you to:
~Cultivate emotional maturity in self first, then to share, mentor and develop others
~Promote a strong group identity
~Keep relationships bigger than any problems
~And then to develop the "Four Habits" of R.A.R.E leaders

The four habits prepare one to be exceptional and are built around the elements of identity and belonging. The power of these two sets the paradigm for the basis and core values of a Rare Leader. They are as follows:
R-Remain relational {belonging}
A-Act like yourself {identity}
R-Return to joy {being glad to be together]
E-Endure hardships well {use differences, difficulties to bring all closer together}

Just Know: That both belonging and identity are key components and lends itself to the evolution of 'Transformation.' It does not hurt one at this juncture to reflect on the biblical revelation of -the fruits of the spirits, i.e. love, joy, peace, long-suffering and temperament, etc.

In conclusion, a word in  regards to, clear understanding and  comprehending the essence of the message and the real meaning of one's speech,sermon, proclamation and/or utterances, especially when articulating a home-going eulogy. One need not look any further than the biblical passage of HABAKKUK 2:2, "The Lord said, write the vision; and make it plain, upon tables, that he may run that read it." Modern-day exegesis meaning: 'write the words large and present them on a Billboard, make them large and clear, share and explain them well. Therefore, anyone can hear it, read it, with no misunderstanding, and can run to explain and to tell others without any confusion.

It has been my experiential encounter; in order to yield exponential spiritual growth; that translates to an enormity of dividends, requires being committed, dedicated and steadfast on the journey of one's daily spiritual walk of life.

I adhere to the principles within this thoughts of consciousness: Take the time to seize the moment; be in the moment; while reaching-out to touch & agree, to reach consensus and/or even to disagree with others, with special consideration given for nurture and care, especially among our youth and young adults. In so doing; take the time to share and impart positive wisdom of useful Intel that has pristine life application qualities.

I would further contend-it would be good to begin with edification, first,then move to encouragement and recognition of  positive learn ed traits and attributes; already in one's possession. Being mindful that the Core Value of  Rare leaders is to always come along side another to pour into them useful, insightful wisdom and knowledge; in the Genre of ;and with the proclivities mirrored in Mentor-ship Traits and Attributes.

A word regards shadowing: When a men tee or an intern is allowed the privilege of observation through shadowing it speaks volumes, on a constant basis. Why? Because when you as a Rare Leader extend such an opportunity through guidance, coaching, counseling, it serves as powerful catalyst to both enhance and augment the desired outcome of one reaching their Full Potential in Life. A feat that is obtained while being aware and embracing one's 'purpose in life-as it was both pre-ordained and meant for them to be by the creator. GO FORTH #MUCHBLESSINGSABOUND#

Be resolve to aspire B 4 U retire;
Strive to do your best to inspire others...
Instead of the focus on a lighter journey...?
Reach-Out, embrace the quest to have broader shoulders

Nor to be so strident and bent for an easy journey...
Instead have a desire for more stamina and stronger feet for the quest of the journey

While on the journey-do not up-hold or look for a weaker enemy...
Better Yet- be steadfast for a more fit, equipped and stronger self...

Therein lay the essence of servant-hood with the embodiment of Rare Leadership traits and attributes.

Prayer for Request and Supplication-W/Expectancy

1 Chronicles 4:9-10, Jabez Request and supplications to God
Compiled/Edited By: Steve Braxton, National Clergy Fellowship Outreach...

THE PRAYER OF JABEZ, his name means: distress, pain, etc
Jabez was different than the rest of his family. His mother named him due to the difficulty she experienced during his birth. Knowing his name brought distress to his mother; he wondered “Is there more to life than this”?
Therefore, he prayed to God this prayer

“Oh that U would bless me, and bless me indeed {means: bless me a lot-many, many times}
And enlarge my territory; that your hand would be with me; and that you would keep me from all evil”
~Wonderfully bless me
~Help me with my work
~Please be with me in all that I do
~Keep me from all evil and disaster {God granted him his request

Oh that u would bless me, indeed
“Prepare me, Equip me; and Empower me
Nothing but God’s fullest blessings for bestowal upon U
But we must ask for them or they will be put on the “un-claimed shelf”-waiting for U to ask
Be in Expectancy Mode: Look FWD with the Belief, have the confidence and expectation that God will bring it to pass
Reflection: Solomon name meant “Peace” He was the first King of Israel to reign without going to war. As he prayed to God 4 Wisdom, Knowledge and all other oppty became available to him {He had the wisdom and most of The Understanding & recognition of God’s Blessings and he was obedient..
OH That U would enlarge My Territory: His desire was not about material things but rather:
~Influence-More Responsibility, More Opportunity to make a mark for God
~Practice his presence; Keep God ‘front-of-mind-consciousness’
~To do the work, by coming along side others to mentor, advice, counsel and coach-and those efforts would serve to glorify God

Prayer sounds something like this:
Oh Great, Good, and Wise God!, I come asking that you would expand my opportunities; in that, it may Impact others  in enormous ways; in the work-as I touch & agree, and that it would make a difference in much more lives-all  to your Glory! Oh Lord help me, and let me do more for you, and the kingdom, this is my prayer, IN JESUS NAME, Amen
