Look Like a Leader!

What does a leader look like?  If you are like Samuel in 1Sam.16 you think of a leader as tall, handsome and fit.  But the Lord pulled him up short as he was trying to discover the next King of Israel.  Rather than picking the one that "looked" like a leader God held out for the smallest, youngest, and least likely in Jesse's family.  God taught Samuel an important lesson:

But the LORD said to Samuel, “Don’t judge by his appearance or height, for I have rejected him. The LORD doesn’t see things the way you see them. People judge by outward appearance, but the LORD looks at the heart.”   1 Samuel 16:7 (NLT) 

But once you are chosen and have dawned the mantel of leadership responsibility, how do you carry yourself?  May seem like a simple question, but people do relate to you based on their perception of you.  This is not good or bad, just reality.  Here are five things to consider from the writers at Inc magazine.
