Taken from PROMISES  FOR  EVERYDAY,  a Daily Devotional.

By John C. Maxwell


When there is no counsel the people fall; but in the multitude of counselors there is safety.        Proverbs 11 :  14

Every leader has to build an inner circle that will add value to him or her and to the leadership of the organisation.  But choose well, for the members of this ‘inner circle’ will become your closest confidantes; your inner circle will make you or break you.

So who belongs to the ‘council’ in this inner circle ?

Creative people

Loyal people

People who share your vision

Wise and intelligent people

People with complememtary gifts

People with influence

People of faith

People of integrity

So how about it?  Do those close to you exemplify it?


I trust our new President has found this kind of “inner circle”, for if there is even one who does not share his vision, there will be trouble of no small magnitude.  To err is human.  Even our Lord who was all wise had a traitor in his inner circle.  We, the people, can only wish our president well and  go with him all the way.  If traitors try to frustrate him and cause him to fail in his mission, we will still be loyal to him.

    I liked this post and the comment about it also. It really blows my mind that the greatest principles of leadership were given to us in the Bible. I have read many leadership books that speak of the idea of surrounding oneself with high quality people and the author speaks as if they had come up with the idea. That is the reason I believe that the greatest book ever written about leadership is the Bible.

    Thanks for visiting my Weblog, for your congratulations and for your article on leadership which was interesting; also the pointers from the people that chose to follow them.
    My choice of a leader is one who is courageous,intelligent and incorruptible, humble and lends an ear to his followers. He must not be seen as a domineering figure, but, for the most, must be indistinguishable from his followere. He must be one who is inspired and be able to inspire and motivate his followers, ans be willing to make the ultimate sacrifice for the cause for which he struggles.
