Your Unique Leadership Skills
We’ve all been through experiences, educational endeavors, jobs, relationships, and circumstances that have shaped who we are. Sometimes we forget that those experiences give us a unique way to lead those around us. In this video, we’re going to look at Moses and see how his desert experience equipped him for the journey of leading the Israelites out of Egypt and through the desert.
1.) Moses lived in the desert.
Because of this, he how to find food, water, and shelter. He knew how to survive and help others do the same.
2.) Moses was 80.
Walked slowly and with a cane. A 25-year-old wouldn’t have walked slow enough to lead 2 million people. It was Moses’ advanced age and physical limitations that made him perfect for the job.
3.) Moses was humbled in isolation and cultivated a heart deep in the quality of wisdom he possessed.
He had time alone to think, contemplate, reflect, and integrate his experiences. We also see this ability modeled in others like David and Jesus. Integrating experiences into character and wisdom is a foundational leadership activity.
