Great Leaders

What makes a leader great?  We could make a laundry list of traits, but Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Carson Wentz has weighed in on the question.  His answer is both simple, and complicated.
Describing Jesus Christ as the “greatest leader of all time,” Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Carson Wentz said problems arise when leaders “lose humility” and let their “pride” get in the way.
Wentz said Gandhi, Nelson Mandela, Mother Teresa and Martin Luther King Jr. are often mentioned as prime examples of leadership, and they wanted to make the world a better place rather than achieve fame.
It's hard to argue with that logic, but then I'm a Christian, and I believe that He still leads us.
“I think the greatest leader of all time, whether you believe in him or not, is Jesus Christ. I don’t think there’s any debating that. This man changed the history of everything. He changed everything. He’s the most impact man to ever walk the Earth; again, whether you believe in him or not. I don’t think there’s any debating that,” Wentz told the audience.
 Servant Leadership is an important trait in any leader, and if you believe as I do, Jesus Christ led the way.  It's a powerful interview.

That's a great way of looking at it; the best leader is the one who leads to serve, as Jesus did.
