Carson Pue on Mentoring Leaders #3

Here’s a helpful list of danger zones in Christian leadership. Pue suggests that any one of these is sufficient to bring down leadership. I found it helpful to consider how each one has its own counterweight in the character, purposes or teaching of God or the person of Christ and our status as children of God through faith in Christ crucified for sin.

• reliance on own gifts
• fear of humankind (people pleasing)
• perfectionism
• lack of conflict resolution skills or avoidance of conflict
• lack of accountability
• ignoring evil or lack of understanding how evil works
• unawareness of how to guard against sexual misconduct
• empire building
• need for recognition
• need to control
• lack of trust / intimacy with God (solitude, etc.)
• inability to set boundaries (to say no)
• inability to delegate
• lack of discernment

Here’s the links for Mentoring Leaders part 1 and part 2
