SELF-EVALUATION OF CHRISTIAN LEADERSHIP QUALITIES
By Patriarch John Williams, Ph.D., NY, U.S.A.

Introduction

To know our own strengths and weaknesses of leadership qualities and abilities, we may use a self-evaluation questionnaire (Table-5.2). This rating scale is designed to evaluate leaders based on twenty leadership qualities and abilities.  Under each quality, five statements are given ranging from A to E.  The statement A is the best position whereas the statement E is the worst position for anyone to be in. The purpose of this form is to help individuals see for themselves what their present condition is and how much they have to grow in that dimension.  Each statement is descriptive.  It is also written with a sense of humor to illustrate a point effectively.  The statements under A have a scriptural basis.  Growth is always progressive.  If a person is at a third level on a particular dimension, he will know that he has to grow two more steps in that dimension.  This is a very useful and practical tool for self-evaluation and self-development.
