Developing Wise Leaders
by Dr. Alex Mekonnen
- What attributes do you think a wise leader possesses?
- Do you agree with Dr. Mekonnen that there is a lack of wise leaders in our world? Why or why not?
- In his article, Dr. Mekonnen mentions several things that he thinks help develop a wise leader: study of the wisdom literature of the Bible, integrated academic curriculum, spiritual formation, mentoring, etc. If you are a leader, in what ways do you incorporate these into your own life? Is there anything you would add to the list?
